Ridden, not hidden.

Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.26.23I love these shots. Nicky Bubbles, a name well known to London Scoote scene, and one of the key movers and shakers in the Bar Italia Scooter club (Facebook page here), was kind enough to let me share these great shots of a brace of Lambrettas… Nicky and a loose collective of like minded individuals who ride together under the moniker of “The Blackheath Panthers”, not so much a scooter club, more a bunch of mates. The only problem I had with the shots was choosing which pics to post – as there were so many good ones. Great looking scooters, with a great patina about them… these machines obviously get out and about, “ridden not hidden” as the title says…and that’s exactly as it should be in my book. Thanks for letting me share these Nicky, appreciate it!Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.18.05 Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.21.57 Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.18.32 Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.23.05 Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.18.53 Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 16.19.48At Leadenhall Market, The City of London.
