welcome to the august edition of scootering

I’ve always been a keen boxing fan, and this quote is attributed to the greatest, Muhammad Ali… “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” The truth, however, is that it was just some blurb put together by ‘creative ad professionals’ Aimee Lehto and Boyd Coyne, who plastered it over a picture of Ali… thus it's often wrongly attributed to him. Still, it’s a great quote! At a time when Ali was at his peak, he was a sponsored athlete of…

sip performance lambretta ignition by vape

SIP have managed to gain the assistance of a major European producer, VAPE, to manufacture these high-end ignition systems. The materials, production and construction of the SIP Performance ignition systems are of the highest quality. Due to the eight coils included on the stator plate, enough power is created at even tick-over revs to fully illuminate the lighting. Both AC and DC versions are available and we recommend the DC type if you wish to power digital components such as the SIP Speedometer, or you require a high battery loading charge. By using the DC version with SIP Speedometer you require a Rev Signal Filter from KOSO, or you can also connect the brown cable from the SIP Speedometer to the white CDI cable of the SIP/VAPE CDI with an extra…

simon cuerdon - a unique soul

The world is a much poorer place after the sudden passing of Simon Cuerdon on June 30. The leading light of the Armed Forces Scooter Club for several decades, Simon was a massive presence in both scootering and Northern Soul communities. His impish sense of humour had been forged in the British Army and was easily misunderstood by outsiders, but the truth is that the only thing Simon couldn’t tolerate was intolerance itself. He was one of the few people on earth who genuinely judged someone on their character rather than characteristics. Once embraced into his circle of friendship the bond was strong and he would be there through both good and bad times, often understanding that someone needed help before they’d realised it themselves. Always armed with a quip or…
