Scoot the Thames Rideout

Family commitments have meant I haven’t been able to make it to any rideouts this year, but I really fancied this one. Family commitments struck again however. What I did manage to do was get to Hampton Court Station to meet up with the contingent leaving from there, and ride the first few miles with them, before heading home. There were a fair few of us, all but one on Lambrettas. A couple of gorgeous Series II TV175’s put my LI to shame! I’d forgotten what a great feeling it is to ride ‘en masse’… the noise, the smell of the two stroke, the smiles and stares from pedestrians and other drivers, and the camaraderie of a great bunch of lads. I’m rubbish with names, but there was Mark, Bill, Garry, Stumpy, Jim the Mod, and a fair few others. Next time I’ll try and make a proper day of it.
