The blog itself was corrected to 22-25 May but of course the email preview remains in your inbox. 

Sorry about that – I was trying to type too fast on my little iPhone!

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?

ScooterExpo gallery

As stated in the latest edition of ScooterNova magazine itself, to compliment the review of the edition 215 that has just been published we have added this brief online gallery.
With most of the 100 scooters entered exhibited on the day there simply wasn’t the space in the magazine to show them all, so here are some of the photos we couldn’t fit in to the pages. You’ll find more images on the SLUK website too. As with all the running around and organising of the event on the day neither Iggy nor myself actually managed to capture every single scooter there on film (or rather the digital equivalent!).
Thanks again to all those who exhibited scooters, attended the event and helped out with its smooth running. The feedback from exhibitors, visitors and traders alike is that this event was up there with the best of them and everyone had a great day out. Sorted.
