Rimini Lambretta Centre – new year, new structure

We’ve known the folks at Rimini Lambretta Centre for many years now, shared many an adventure with them and had the pleasure of not only their company both in Italy as well as hosting them in the UK, but also their scooters and scooter skills too (in fact RLC kindly did the engine for my Starstream I’m currently rebuilding). Over the years many friendships have been formed there, which is a wonderful thing to say about a business.

Isle of Wight scooter rally video

Here is the ScooterNova magazine video of another great bank holiday weekend at the BSRA Isle of Wight Scooter Rally.
Using a Sena 10C Pro helmet camera we captured our ride there and back and also shot footage on the island of the rally itself, including the custom show, traders and the ride out. All that and we still managed to work two days on the ScooterNova magazine stall as well! The soundtrack is provided by Smoove and Turrell – the headline act at the Scooter Rally on the Saturday night – along with the sweet purr of 2-stroke engines.
Can you spot yourself somewhere in the next four minutes?
