welcome to the november edition of scootering

Just when you think nothing new is on the horizon, someone only goes and pulls a 488cc ‘Twin Engine’ Vespa out of the bag, and it all goes crackers again. This Vespa is like no other I’ve ever seen, I love it. And I don’t just like the fact that it has a BIG cc engine, or that it kicks out 56hp, or that it’s africkin Vespa-twin, or that the whole conversion is largely reversible (though I really DO like that). It’s the whole level of engineering behind it. One man, a lot of knowledge, and clearly a serious amount of access to some stunning engineering trickery! From the hidden master cylinder, to the stand dampers and beyond, it just rocks. The engineering is on a whole different level. Yet…

snog, marry, avoid

A service on Stan’s GP coincided with the arrival of Quattrini compatible Clubmans. It would have been rude of him not to test them… Pitting any Clubman against an expansion chamber is only going to have one result – the expansion chamber will win. That’s not to say Clubmans are bad exhausts. For those wanting a standard look and less noise they’re an obvious choice, it’s simply a question of priorities. Regular readers will know that I’m running a long-term test of a Quattrini motor built by Chiselspeed in Leeds. When I dropped it in for service, Martin asked if he could use it to compare sample Clubmans from BGM and Ron Moss. I agreed, as long as I got to ride them. In fairness to both BGM and Ron Moss, it’s worth…

legal q&a

This information is provided by Stephen Hattersley of WildWood Legal, a firm of solicitors specialising in claims for injured scooterists. Stephen, a qualified solicitor for 25 years, has been riding scooters for over 30 years, and has acted for injured riders across the UK. He knows the tricks and pitfalls that insurers use and pulls no punches in his dealings with them. He rides to work every day and understands the challenges you face out there. Q. My solicitor wants to take 25% of any money I get from my accident compensation. Is that allowed? It doesn’t seem fair. A. Yes, it is. Since 2013, solicitors have been allowed to take a ‘success fee’ from winning cases as they now get less from the Defendant’s insurers towards their costs. This is capped…

are you sitting comfortably?

With the latest edition to their range of seats, Scooter Centre Koln promise owners of large frame Vespas the perfect combination of style and comfort.
