you’ve not ridden buttertubs pass?

I’m a lucky man… editor of Scootering magazine and living in the Yorkshire Dales. What more could a man want? There are certain rides and roads which people often travel to search out, but every time I strike up the engine and set out for a ride… I’m already based in one of those idyllic locations. Some might take that for granted, I don’t. One road, however, which I am thoroughly ashamed to say I have never ridden, is Buttertubs Pass. For those who don’t know, this road crosses the high moorland between Wensleydale and Swaledale, from the idyllic market town of Hawes over to the village of Thwaite. Buttertubs Pass featured as the second King of the Mountains climb of the 2014 Grand Depart of the Tour de France. But…

european updates

Ferry costs are murky The National Motorcyclists Council (NMC) has begun talks with the Government after difficulties were encountered by those transporting British-registered ‘motorcycles’ by van into the European Union (EU). Although many riders dream of riding their scooter in Europe, time is often a constraint in making that a reality. For that reason, a network of specialist transport services have emerged, taking machines to a holiday destination where their owners fly out to meet them. It’s an arrangement often referred to as a ‘fly-ride holiday’. Customs need clarity Unfortunately, the Brexit Trade Agreement doesn’t specifically deal with ‘unaccompanied movements of road registered vehicles’, meaning that scooters transported by these means would be liable for tax and duty upon arrival in the EU. Another matter that needs clarification is the ‘non-commercial transport’ of…

malossi kit revamp

Malossi, having revamped the 210 kit into three different versions back in 2013, has once again returned with a fresh approach and has now added a feature every owner wanted. This year Malossi has updated these kits with a steel bolt-on exhaust stub, similar to the stub as fitted on the Malossi Aluminium 178/187cc kits for the PX125/150. The steel stub seals to the cylinder with an O-ring and is held in place with a steel flange that is held on with four bolts. The flange also has extra holes for spring mounting already, so everything has been covered in this update. Initial release of these kits is the Malossi 210 Sport mark 2 VM318591, and the Malossi 221 MHR mark 2 VM318599, with the Malossi 210 MHR to follow suit sometime…

tales from the foxes of foxham – matteo sedazzari

Following on from A Crafty Cigarette – Tales of A Teenage Mod and The Magnificent Six in Tales of Aggro comes the third, and final, book in Matteo Sedazzari’s trilogy of Tales novels, Tales from the Foxes of Foxham. As with its predecessors, it’s a character-based story, albeit one that features talking animals. He draws inspiration from kids’ classics he enjoyed as a youngster, books that transported him to magical worlds, with an underlying theme of the proverbial good versus evil struggle. Titles including the likes of Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in The Willows, Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree, Dodie Smith’s 101 Dalmations and CS Lewis’s The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe provide part inspiration, along with holidays spent in Italy plus woodland walks in Norfolk, searching for red…
