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 – a fabulous new show

This weekend saw the doors open for ScooterExpo, an event that had been eight months in the planning, although in my mind for a fair bit longer than that.
While I may have first considered the concept of a new scooter event prior to launching ScooterNova magazine back in 2017, it couldn’t have happened without the help of my friend Iggy at ScooterLab UK. After sharing ideas of an event organised by the both of us, we sat down at the end of 2018 to discuss the potential, various suggestions, and after he came up with the venue, ScooterExpo was born – the first joint event by ScooterNova magazine and SLUK.

Scooters, traders, deals & more at ScooterExpo

This Sunday will see our new joint ScooterLab/ScooterNova show arrive at the hallowed halls of Alfreton Leisure Centre, a venue steeped in scootering history. Home of the iconic NSRA Trade & Custom shows from 1989-1991. And have we got a great line up for you!

We’d like to thank our sponsors for showing faith in us, Lexham Insurance (check out their stand for a chance to win a year’s free insurance) and Putoline Lubricants  (visit their stand to get all your questions about oils, eprotectors and octane boosters answered). Of course, we’d also like to thank all the other exhibitors and traders for jumping on board. We’d also like to thank all the showgoers who have helped to create a buzz about the event before it has even happened. We hope you all come along and have a great day out. 

Here’s all the pre-show info you should need…

Glyn Dove’s Pseudo Satisfaction…
…and Nick Jolly’s Hall of Fame were at Alfreton in 1991. When was the last time you saw either of these scooters out and about? Both have been dusted off just for this show.
Wake has only been shown twice since it was rebuilt and featured in edition 10 of ScooterNova magazine. It will be at Alfreton at the weekend along with potentially two other ex-Jeremy Howlett bikes, including Dazzle.

ScooterNova at EuroLambretta

We finally arrived at the rally site for this year’s EuroLambretta in Zakopane, Poland this afternoon. We set off from home last Friday and have ridden our old Lambretta scooters just over 1000 miles and through five countries… so far!

The site was bustling we we arrived and we were soon chatting with friends and fellow Lambretta riders from all over Europe.

Tomorrow (Saturday) you will find ScooterNova magazine helping out on the Lambretta Club Great Britain stall in the ‘market area’ of the rally. If any fellow riders need spares etc for their scooters then the LCGB will as always have the essential get you home stuff, along with their popular range of merchandise too.

The club will also have the latest edition of ScooterNova magazine for sale, as well as previous editions. We will have a small selection of magazine merchandise also available, along with offering subscriptions and renewals for all those who like to do this annually at the EuroLambretta rally, oh and did I mention we have some new, shiny stickers too?

So please feel free to come by and say hello tomorrow to us and the LCGB stall volunteers and have a great time in Poland!

Ride safe,

Andy

Kelso here we come!

Bonnie Scotland is calling us this weekend for the third BSRA National scooter rally of 2019.
The Borders town of Kelso is another of our favourite rallies on the calendar, with the ride up featuring some fantastic roads to enjoy – if you get the chance, check out the A68, we love it – and the town itself always welcoming.

We will have the brand new edition 13 with us, so if you want to know what it is like to own and ride a Lambretta Targa Twin 275cc, what kind of eye-catching Vespa hot-rod you can build for less than £1000, or be inspired by some amazing scooter touring, then edition 13 is perfect for you! We also have a stunning DDK painted Lambretta street racer, exclusive interviews with Ray Kemp of AF Rayspeed and John Horner of RW Horner Brothers, two GS Vespa, one built in Italy the other in Belgium (!) plus event and product reviews, news, an electric classic Lambretta, and all you need to know about powder-coating your scooter can all be found in edition 13. We will also have some back issues, merchandise and our new limited edition enamel pin badges. Plus signed copies of Sticky’s new ScooterBoys book too.
Have a safe ride folks and we’ll see you up there!
