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’ a…

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 safety…

This information is provided by Stephen Hattersley of WildWood Legal, a firm of solicitors specialising in claims for injured scooterists.

Q: I rang my insurers to report that I had been knocked off my scooter. They were pretty insistent that I should use their ‘recommended solicitors’. I wanted to use someone else to deal with my claim, but I’m worried now that I can’t. A: The insurer’s approach is pretty standard, to be honest. They may…

new richa galvestone jacket

A new addition to the Richa textile line-up for the 2019 season is the Galvestone jacket. Despite looking like a casual fashion jacket, the Galvestone is both waterproof and breathable, and features a removable thermal lining as well as D3O armour at the elbows, shoulders and back as standard. The outer material is made from a polyester and cotton mix with a separately removable thermal lining made from a Taffeta membrane with a slip lining of cotton for comfort. For warmer rides, there are ventilation zips on the arms and back to help the air circulate around the rider. Adjusters on the hips and arms ensure a snug fit, and an integrated connecting zip enables the jacket to be connected to Richa trousers with a zip connector. Sizes: S-6XL Colours: Black or Green RRP:…
