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
You’d have thought in August we’d all be basking in glorious sunshine, right? Well when it came to the Derby 150 last year, we were treated not only to 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
If you’re off to Bridlington this weekend then please do come and say hello to us on the ScooterNova stall at the Spa on Saturday. We’ll have lots to show you, mainly the brand new edition 4 of the magazine, which will be hot off the press!
We’ll also have our Christmas subscription offer – what better gift to show you care than a ScooterNova magazine subscription – something lucky recipient will cherish and be proud to place on their coffee table.
Due to popular demand, we have ScooterNova Christmas cards for sale in packs of six too.
We’ve had zip-up hoodies produced, just in time for the cold winter months, and these will be delivered to our stall in the Spa on Saturday. Like our T-shirts, these are available in both ladies and gents fit.
Finally, if you are looking for that perfect Christmas gift, aside from a subscription, T-shirt or hoodie, then don’t forget about our classy leather key holders, bringing that 1970s look back to scootering with style!
The LCGB scooter custom show at the Bridlington Spa begins at 11am this Saturday, 28th October and the ScooterNova magazine stall will be in the entrance area to greet you as you arrive.
We will also have our street team of sellers out and about around town on Saturday, just in case you miss us in the Spa.
We’ll be there Friday night too, when the VFM crew will be entertaining us with DJs and live bands, so have a safe ride and see you on the dance floor!
ScooterNova edition 4 is published on the 26 October 2017. Over the 100 quality pages it is printed on you’ll find numerous in-depth articles from the 1951 Vespa Sei Giorni 125cc Racer to rare and unseen images and drawings of prototypes from the Lambretta factory, a thorough road test of the Lambretta GT240 kit, a look at the last sporting Vespas produced by Piaggio in the 1980s, and much more besides. You can buy and subscribe online here.
Merchandise can also be purchased online from our ScooterNova shop.
Everyone appreciates a quality gift at Christmas, and the good news is that with ScooterNova you can buy quality at an affordable price. Not only that, but if you 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
To celebrate the launch of edition 3 of ScooterNova magazine, we’d like to invite readers – new and old – to join us for a drink at the Isle of Wight scooter rally over the coming August Bank Holiday weekend.
With a love of classic Italian scooters shared between many of us in mind, our friends at Rimini Lambretta Centre took our shopping list and returned with a few bottles of Limoncello, the famous Italian liqueur. We’ll be cracking open the bottles on Saturday 26 August so feel free to pay us a visit, have a drink, a chat, browse a magazine, and if you want to bring some olives to the party you’ll be more than welcome too!
You will find the ScooterNova magazine stall on the official scooter rally campsite at Smallbrook Stadium near Ryde and we’ll be trading there from Friday until Sunday.
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)
