welcome to the may edition of scootering

What a year 2019 is set to be. There are so many anniversaries for clubs, DJs, bands, scooter models. It makes it a difficult choice to decide which articles to feature. This month we make mention of Leicester Phoenix SC, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary, as well as legendary Wigan Casino DJ Dave Evison, who is celebrating 50 years in the music business! That number puts Dave in good company, as Stu Owen takes a look at 50 years of the Lambretta Grand Prix. As Stu points out, half a century has passed since Innocenti released its final piece of scooter design, one which has endured the test of time and achieved legendary status. A certain GP in particular, though, which I am delighted to see back on…

oxford parka

I’m not a big fan of Parkas. That’s actually quite an understatement. So when I heard that Oxford had brought out a Parka-style scooter jacket, I wasn’t at all impressed. However… my personal opinion is that it’s not so much a Parka at all, but more a full-length scooter jacket, and a good one at that. I’ve been trying one out and it’s rammed with features such as Oxford’s Rainseal Tech, making it a good all-round performer. It’s lightweight, waterproof and breathable, and has a removable hood and a high neckline to give extra wind and weather protection, with or without the hood. The Parka also features a storm flap on the inside with bar tacks to prevent weather ingress in poor conditions, and is secured with a zip.…

sip performance brake shoes

Effective braking is not only important for faster or more powerful forms of transport. The safety of the rider and other road users can depend on good brakes, even when travelling at lower speeds. The SIP Premium and the SIP Performance enable immense improvement of the scooter’s braking, with the assistance of softer frictional materials. This also dramatically upgrades rider safety, without having to add components exotic to the appearance of your vintage scooter.Alongside the softer consistency, they are also more resistant to fading at the high temperatures attained during use. These brake shoes remain effective and reliable, even during long mountain pass descents, when compared to standard types. They also show a good relative wear to braking performance ratio.Both the Premium and Performance lines are available to fit…
