Edition 16 of ScooterNova is well on the way to completion and we’re pretty excited about what’s inside! Not only some great articles, but we’re also doing something a little special for all those who subscribe to the magazine.
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.
It’s time for us to load our scooters for the ride to the north coast of Wales for the fifth National Scooter Rally of 2019. Some cracking roads whichever direction you ride from, it’s always great to be beside the seaside.
ScooterNova will be trading all day on Saturday at Venue Cymru, where we’ll have the latest magazine – Edition 14 – as well as some quality merchandise for your delight! This will include our new range of ‘Addicted to 2-Stroke’ t-shirts as well as Sticky’s Scooterboys book.
Ride safe, see you there!
