Stefan sent me a link to this fantastic video of the Jetsons Lambretta Club & Friends, at the 70th Anniversary Lambretta Rally in Monza last year… great stuff!
Thanks Stefan!

Some Alpine riding with The Jetsons

Some great Austrian scenery on the way to EuroLambretta 2014 Davos, in Switzerland. Those roads look fantastic to ride on! Footage by, and of, The Jetsons Lambretta Club.

High mileage S2

Screen Shot 2014-01-14 at 17.54.29This Series 2 is just about the opposite of the immaculate TV175 I featured yesterday …but the beauty of Lambretteas is, I like this one just as much! It’s taken it’s rider, Roger, who goes under the twitter handle @redscootdog, a good few miles… including Spain, France, Holland, Germany and Belgium… and he’s heading out to Switzerland on it this year. Even in this pic, he’s off on a ferry somewhere. He’s been wet, tired, had back ache and a sore arse from putting all those miles in… but enjoyed every minute of it… Because he’s riding the worlds finest motor scooter.

Le Voyage Exceptionnel – EuroLambretta Avignon, The Movie

So here’s the mystery. I’m sure I posted this video ages ago. Back in June in fact. But there it was, when I went into my “Dashboard” (WordPressers all know what I’m talking about) sitting in the “Pending” category. So if you’ve seen it before, apologies, but not too many, as I’m sure you’ll appreciate the opportunity of seeing it again. I’ve since posted an article about Woodsy’s fine still imagery that you can check out here, if you missed that.

From Manchester, England to Avignon France. And Back. By Lambretta.

If you only watch one video about EuroLambretta, watch this one. Brilliant visuals from the first frame to the last with a great soundtrack. Hit the full screen button, crank up your speakers to 11. If you don’t want to sign up for the next Euro after watching this, there’s something wrong with you.

This is the best scooter video I’ve seen since this one. In fact, I think it’s better.

You really wont believe this.

Look what turned up at EuroLambretta in Avignon. I’ve seen it all now.

I’m not going to comment much on this, and the guys at Lambretta Club de France are going to post a full picture set soon… so just sit back, check out these few images and have your mind blown.970937_464268956992548_540892458_n936998_464921640260613_573224549_n601927_464923653593745_2000583273_n954730_464964120256365_1485118549_n

I think the technical term is Paramotor. Powered paragliding (PPG). Powered by an open framed Lambretta. My gob is smacked. My ghast is flabbered. Amazing. I want a go… I think!
