It’s finally here, the new ScooterLab.uk website launched today. I’m not going to write reams about it, until I’ve got my head round it a little, other than to say it’s quality product from a team of professionals who know what they’re talking about. There’s something for everybody, whether you’re into classic geared scoots, or modern autos. So, for now I’d just like to give a hearty Lambrettista welcome to the new kid on the block! Check it out for yourself, here.
So, the latest missive from Sticky and the gang gives a little more information about Project SLUK… recently revealed to stand for ScooterLab UK…
Just to clarify, this isn’t something I’m involved in, I just think it’s good to see the Scooter media in such a healthy state. The Lambrettista blog will continue, as I see it as a very different beast from SLUK, although there is obviously some ‘cross-over’.
So over to the latest news from SLUK;
We’ve tentatively set the website launch date for Monday March 7th.
SLUK email subscribers are the first to know about our launch date, so spread the word.
ScooterLab.UK is an online magazine, run by scooterists, for scooterists. With a website we have enormous flexibility about how SLUK will grow and evolve. We want your input on what you’d like to see, particularly if you have a good feature idea or want to get involved. We need road going scooter riders to support us and help wherever possible.
What’s the SLUKing format?
SLUK is going to be a split format website covering the whole scooter market. At the entrance you can choose one door for retro scooters or another for modern. There will be a cross-over of some features across both sides of the site.
The great thing about what we are doing is that we can make the rules up as we go, so SLUK will have a weekly format. Sunday will be the big day for us, with scheduled release of our major articles. We can’t wait to show you.
Do I have to pay to view?
ScooterLab’s content is free to view and supported by relevant advertising. You don’t even have to sign-up to view but there are a raft of benefits if you join the party.
So, there you go, March 7th is the big launch… You can sign-up for further updates over at http://www.scooterlab.uk
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
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.
Sign-up online to be the first to know when it kickstarts…
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!
