welcome to the june edition of scootering

Beware the ‘echo chamber’… take a broader view. I’m not one for trying to dispense worldly advice of any kind. I don’t think I’m in a position to advise anyone really. However, sometimes people’s behaviour patterns can leave me in a state of despair. For those who frequent social media pages to indulge in scooter-related banter and friendship, and observe some of the wild rants which take place on there, you might know what I’m talking about. An ‘echo chamber’ is an environment in which a person encounters only beliefs or opinions that coincide with their own, so that their existing views are reinforced and alternative ideas are not considered. So when Facebook, for example, sees that you follow the page ‘we only ride proper scooters’ and also ‘like’…

here comes summer!

There are few items of kit that truly revolutionise anyone’s riding experience, but summer gloves certainly fit that category. If you’ve never tried a pair, the sensation of cool air flowing through a well-designed pair is sheer joy. Sunshine or not, a tumble still hurts, and even at low speed hands are particularly vulnerable.String-back driving gloves will do nothing to keep a rider out of A&E.One of the few gloves to meet recently mandated CE safety standards are RST’s Rider Gloves. Made from a synthetic hybrid material ,they feature knuckle protectors, double layer palm protection and a fixed comfort mesh lining. After using them over the Easter weekend at Scarborough, there’s every indication that these will feel well ventilated on even the warmest of days. Despite conforming to highest…

bgm pro hpc cranks available from ve (uk)

Lambretta owners looking for a high-quality performance crankshaft will be interested in the BGM Pro HPC cranks available from VE (UK). Designed and manufactured to offer superb performance, these forged crankshafts have a much higher material density than their non-forged equivalents, resulting in a longer-lasting crankshaft, due to the stronger material. The lubrication channels have also been improved over OE crankshafts, with the big end pin having two large slots and four pockets for oil delivery, whilst the small end features two holes for lubrication purposes. Suitable for Lambretta Li/SX/TV/GP models, the cranks are available in a range of stroke (58mm-60mm) and con-rod lengths (107,110 & 115mm), and require a GP taper flywheel.

sip performance led headlamp unit

Available for the Vespa GTS/GTS Super/GT/GT L 125-300cc (03-18), this lamp provides perfect luminous efficiency, a reassuring field of view at night and even increased passive safety during the daylight hours. These are just a small selection of the advantages provided by modern LED powered headlights. The SIP LED headlights require no modification to be mounted. Contrary to the design of other aftermarket LED headlights, available for Vespa models, this possesses a neatly designed central LED strip, so decently upgrading the overall look without sticking out like a sore thumb! The unit is equipped with a high-power LED main/dipped beam and is attached to the scooter’s wiring loom using the original headlight connection socket. The separate cable can be used for the running light function. These LED headlights are…
