SLUK… All is revealed!

So, there’s been a bit of a buzz around ‘something’ called SLUK – all was revealed today at Scooterist Meltdown by Martin ‘Sticky’ Round… well-known scooter expert,  journalist and adventurer…


SLUK PRESS RELEASE


SLUK_DSC1647

Do you love scooters but are fed up with dead-tree scooter media?

Would you like something that was more up to date, faster with the news, more interactive maybe?

Would you prefer it if you could obtain quality scooter content in a format that you could access anywhere, at any time, with the phone in your pocket or the computer in front of you?

What about going beyond a static format and adding video content designed both to inform and entertain?

How about your scooter media not being a one-way street, but by you being able to actively take part in real time?

How would you feel about all of this being brought to you by forward-thinking scooter riders like yourself?

Would you like to still get the quality of writing that only comes from knowledgeable and experienced writers?

Would you like to see big, powerful images displayed beautifully on a revolutionary website that blows the competition into the weeds?

How about if there was one place on the net that acted as a hub for scooterists worldwide? Somewhere you can find out about forthcoming events and post reports of those you’ve attended in video or photographic format.

How about a site that allowed you to get a better deal on insurance, clothing or simply to find your nearest dealer?

What would you pay for such a service? What if we said that you do not need to visit a newsagent to pay £4 every month or take out a subscription for this?

How about if we told you that the price for all this is FREE?

If that sounds like a good deal then you need SLUK.

SLUK is short for ScooterLab.uk and it’s coming to you soon.

Sounds pretty good to me! Of course, you can still keep reading and interacting with your favourite Lambretta blog… 😉

I’d just like to give a personal nod to Sticky, I’ve been thoroughly entertained by his writing for Scootering over the years, and he’s even made me smile when reading his “Complete Spanners Guide” how many workshop manuals do that? He’s been a friend to the blog, and I wish him and the team every success in their new venture!

Stuff from the new Lambretta Store… (Ideal for Lambretta loving dads)

I wrote about the new online Lambretta store a few posts back… Thought I’d flag up a few bits they have for sale. Remember, as an opening offer you get a free gift (stickers, a wallet or a tin, depending on how much you spend), and entry into a competition to win a new Lambretta.

So they have ‘tonic style’ suits, (my quote marks) they call this one ‘green’, although I’d probably name it ‘petrol’… £240

Hats… this one is 2p short of a tenner

Watches from £40 – £325 – my favourite would probaly be the Franco Black that comes in at a not too expensive £70, and has the look of a classic Braun design.

There’s a selection of other bits and bobs below, like afterhave, badges, keyrings and notebooks, at more ‘pocket money’ prices. It’s Father’s Day on Saturday, correction… it’s Sunday… in case you hadn’t rembembered. Just saying.

New Online Lambretta (brand) Store goes live… Win a Lambretta, and get free gifts.

Fresh up today, the new online store for all that Lambretta branded stuff. Headwear, Suits, Watches, Accessories… some of it’s good, some of it’s ok, some of it misses the mark for me. I’ve written about that all before, here, I won’t cover old ground!

Interesting opening offers though; make any purchase  before the end of the year and you’ll be entered into a draw to win a brand new Lambretta (not the beautiful Series 2 shown… boo!). There’s also some free stuff with your order… stickers, wallets, and a jubilee bus tin. 

Remember, although these guys own the Lambretta brand, and the rights to put the Lambretta name to everything from aftershave to socks (I’ve got some socks, they’re not bad), they’re not the only game in town… and you can get some great stuff from the Lambretta Club of Great Britain (LCGB) Shop. Here.

Check out the Lambretta Store here.
