Lambretta Shot

KeithNairn-LambrettaS1Not a lot to add to this, but a nice shot of a nice scoot. By Keith Nairn, on Flickr, his photostream is worth checking out if you, like me, like classic bikes (some nice Laverdas for instance) and other mechanical ‘boys toys’.

Davida helmets

Davida TricolorIn my last post about helmets, I somehow neglected to mention Davida, as one of my readers, biker chappie and blogger The Ham & Eggs was quick to point out. And although I still think of Davida as a relative newcomer to the helmet market, they  have been making quality, stylish helmets in the UK for over 30 years. They also are made to satisfy some of the Worlds strictest safety standards, which is nice. Based in the Wirral, England Davida still hand build their helmets, using the best quality material available. Check out their website here.

Their now iconic Davida Jet isEuropean Standard ECE R22-05 certified, and ACE Gold Approved for racing. It comes in a wide range of styles (below are some of my favourites), and can even be tailored to match the paintwork of your scooter. Custom designs can also be accommodated, and their design team will discuss the appropriateness of your design for a helmet. full_80532JET full_80235JETfull_80531JETfull_80508JET full_80236JET full_80592JET

The true spirit of motorcycling…

These days, when I’m out on my Series 2, I get more “thumbs up” from riders of BSA and Triumphs than modern auto scooters… funny how things change. Anyway, this video raised a smile. After yesterdays horrific events In London, I need something to make me smile.

I think that’s a Cezeta… I don’t think Innocenti had much to worry about on the design front! And a petrol tank built into the front fender? Who’s bright idea was that!?
