This might sound like scaremongering, but plans are afoot to charge both two and four-wheeled vehicles of a certain age to drive in London, and if it’s not stopped now then Continue reading
Our final video round-up of the 2017 scooter rally season takes us from August to November, riding from beautiful summer sunshine to the pitch black of the Lincolnshire Wolds. If you attended Strictly Scooters Continue reading
We’ve had a great summer riding to rallies that we’d like to share with you.
In part four we ride to Scotland for the national rally at Kelso, the south east national rally at Big 7, a jolly weekend with the Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association, our cheese and wine soiree by the seaside at Cleethorpes national rally (you can check out the separate video here), the LCGB’s Four Nations rally in scenic Shipson-on-Stour, Wales for the national rally in Llandudno and to York SC’s scooter only rally at Breighton Ferry.
We probably bumped into most of you along the way, so hopefully we caught you and your scooter on camera. If not there’s always the next video to check out…. Cheers!
We’ve a couple more videos of our adventures in 2017 we’d like to share with you, both of which involve Continue reading
Well it seems that as soon as Guy Fawkes night finished, the onslaught of marketing campaigns to encourage Christmas shopping began. Here at ScooterNova however we think you should at least wait until December, and even then we have a Continue reading
With two great rallies so close to each other there’s no point in unpacking much, so we’re refuelling our scooters and heading down to sunny Essex this weekend for Mersea Island scooter rally.
Over the weekend we’ll be sharing stall space with the Lambretta Club of Great Britain, helping them out too. We will of course have the brand new edition 3 of ScooterNova magazine, which coincidentally – as we will be with the LCGB – has a massive 12 page feature on the 70th anniversary of Lambretta, together with a selection of rare and unseen photographs from the Innocenti archives in the 1960s. I can assure you, no other scooter magazine has access to such images.
Of course there is plenty more inside edition three too, from a rusty eye-catching Vespa built on a budget to Part 2 of the ‘touring to Moscow’ story. We have an exclusive on the Lambretta Siluro record breaker which was recently recommissioned for Goodwood, and we pit a luxury vintage Germany scooter against an Italian rival to see what was the best electric start machine from the 1950s. There is a gorgeous Vespa GS that you can’t help but admire and we are also proud to have yet another exclusive feature on a custom scooter that deservedly won a number of trophies at the Isle of Wight last week, Discworld. Put simply, ScooterNova is 100 pages of quality magazine with credible articles throughout and selective advertising!
Speaking of the IOW, our ‘peep hole’ photograph head shot concept went down a storm on the rally site at Smallbrook stadium, and Colchester DVLC have invited us to bring it along to Mersea Island too, so all those who missed out last weekend will get a chance to join in the fun in Essex! (**note to parents, PLEASE don’t let you kids climb on or swing from the framework, because it damages it and we can’t afford to be replacing it on a regular basis – thank you!).
So come along and say hello over the weekend, feel free to browse through a magazine (we’ll have all three issues with us) to see what the fuss is about if you’ve not yet seen ScooterNova for yourself, and have a safe ride!
I think it is to fair to say that from a personal point of view, this year’s Isle of Wight scooter rally was one of my favourites. It’s over 30 years since I first rode over there for a scooter rally and aside from the great weather, the journey, the laughs, the scooters, the fun and so much more went together perfectly to make Continue reading
Roll up roll up! Ladies and gentlemen, have we got something for you lovely people at this year’s Isle of Wight scooter rally!
All weekend at the ScooterNova magazine stall on the official rally campsite at Smallbrook Stadium near Ryde, we will have a pair of our ScooterNova riders, ready and waiting for your face to complete the picture!
We’ve had this ‘peep board’ specially made so you can all race a ScooterNova scooter with a fellow ScooterNova rider, and even turn your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter profile image into a magazine cover with our compliments.
And in case you forget your selfie stick, we’ll have a camera somewhere nearby to capture the moment.
So come along, join in the fun, snap away and share your photos of the day you were a cover star of The Rider’s Choice magazine. Just don’t forget to please add #ScooterNova
Feel free to tag us in your posts, as well as adding the hashtag too, whether on your own pages, club sites, groups, the ScooterNova page, or any others you post on. Spread the word, enjoy the ride and have a great Isle of Wight scooter rally!
Edition 3 of ScooterNova is out now. Join us at the Isle of Wight to celebrate the launch of the latest edition, or buy online here.
If you’re going to the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally over the August Bank holiday weekend, look out for our exclusive, limited edition ScooterNova IOW rally stickers and postcards (so you can write home and tell your mates how good it was!).
They will be in the rally goody bags given out to the first 1000 or so scooter riders on the official rally campsite.
We will have a few more to give away from our stall, also at the Smallbrook Stadium site, but you’ll need to be quick!!
Ride safe and see you there.
(The ScooterNova magazine stall will be open from Friday to Monday in the dealer village on the official rally campsite, at Smallbrook Stadium near Ryde. Edition 3 of ScooterNova will be published just before the rally and available there too)
