scooter rental?

I need a 50cc machine for the practical in the lovely old seaside resort of Erith in a couple of weeks, and racewaysrentals.com haven’t confirmed after 3 days. Any other recommendations? Or has anyone got a cheap machine for sale which will last another couple of months before going to scrap? (There’s a good artistic reason for all this: I need to transport my barrel organ in a Piaggio... read more »

Hello, Anyone up for this? It’s a lot of fun. Goes from Inner Circle , Regents Park to Southend.

Scooter mechanics/repairs

Hi My Vespa GTV125 needs a bit of looking at as the coolant has been leaking pretty badly recently. I usually use Scooterden for repairs/servicing, however they seem exceptionally busy lately and I’ve heard they’re possibly at the pricier end of the scale, though I’ve never had a problem with any of the work done there. Does anyone have any recommendations when it comes to mechan... read more »

Motorbike licence training / test recommendations

Last year I got a bigger bike (125cc), so re-did my CBT, I’m now keen to ditch the L plates and maybe go a bit bigger again. I have passed my motorbike theory test already, so I’m looking for recommendations of where to go to do the practical. Does anyone have any? I’ll do either the A2 or the full Direct Access rather than restrict myself to 125cc. I’d prefer to pay nearer... read more »

Scooter Router: routes from Hackney

Scooter Router: routes from Hackney

@stephenwalker78 and I started a little website at the end of 2013. We wanted some interesting routes to take the scooters out on, but what we found was either a bit far away or a bit long for our heavy lambrettas (more like motorbike routes). So we started Scooter Router www.scooterrouter.co.uk There are only a couple of routes on there right now, most routes will likely start from Hackney and ta... read more »
