welcome to the april edition of scootering

Right off the bat, this month I want to quickly make mention of the new videos we have been placing on our Scootering Facebook page. In this age of social media, it would be remiss of us not to get involved and move with the times, so I’ve dipped my toe in the water and had a crack at a few videos. I hope you enjoy them. Online presence is not our primary focus here at Scootering, even though we have a fantastic website (scootering.com), which is full of interesting stuff, a well-established scooter forum (scooterotica.org) where scooterists can interact and share info with each other, and a popular Facebook page (with over 64,000 likes). We do like to stay old school. Well, I do, anyway. It just seems there is a…

legendary lids

The 1970s are back... and we’re not just talking about street racers. Whether it’s cars, motorcycles or music, the decade of our childhood is cool once again. Helmet manufacturer AGV has noticed this trend and has produced the Legends range of helmets, merging cutting edge safety with 1970s styling. Unlike many companies AGV is proud of its heritage and most of its national importers have a museum of classic helmets worn by legendary figures such as Barry Shene and Giacomo Agostini. These helmets have provided the template for the X3000, a full face helmet that’s almost indistinguishable from the originals – even the chin guard’s sculpted as Agostini requested; so he could get closer to the tank and further behind the fairing. Such concerns aren’t relevant to most scooterists but the classic silhouette…

all change

Last month Stan reported on his first impressions of the new HPE GTS300. He was so impressed with the new model that he’s put his money where his mouth is and ordered a brand new HPE Touring. By the time these words are read he should be clocking up the miles and will keep us posted on what the new machine’s really like to live with. Sticking with Stan for a while, unseasonably warm weather in February gave him chance to take his faithful Casa 185 engine for a final spin and now his DL’s on the workbench. In the coming weeks it’ll be receiving a set of SIP Performance cables, a disc brake upgrade and most importantly the Chiselspeed-built Quattrini 218 that’ll take him to Poland this summer. With his…

oiltek’s toolbox tools

As the rally season approaches it’s time to plan for the inevitable breakdowns. Fortunately Oiltek has come to the rescue of space starved scooterists with a range of compact, but effective tools Our favourite is a Lambretta clutch compressor that breaks down to be not much larger than a fag packet, but there’s also a compact flywheel holding tool that fits SIL electronic, BGM and Variatronic flywheels. Workshop needs are also catered for with a gudgeon pin extractor that won’t harm the con rod during pin removal and a layshaft holding tool that makes fitting a breeze. With prices starting at under £10, they won’t break the bank either. www.oiltek.co.uk…
