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.

New Twitter Handle!

Mr Lambrettsita Twitter AvatarI’ve got a new Twitter handle (why handle? Is it only used on Twitter and CB radio? How weird!) It’s  @MrLambrettista and, if you do the Twitter thing I’d love you to follow me their. This is going to be 100% (well maybe 95%) scooter and scooter lifestyle related. Once I’ve got a bit of critical mass, I’ll start deleting the scootering links from my other twitter account (@crocodilejock) and just use that for my art, graphic design, typography, brand and marketing related posts (my day job). If that sort of stuff interests you, I’d love to keep you as followers here. Sorry if this all seems a little convoluted, but it will all start getting confusing if I leave it much longer. It also makes sense to link up the blog, the Facebook page and the twitter account under one ‘brand’.

So the long and short of it is, I’d love you to follow me on @MrLambrettista and a big thank you to the 68 people that have followed me already!

Twitter? Here’s some scooter people you may want to follow

Instead of a regular #FF (Follow Friday – where you post links of other Twitterers you may think of interest to others), I thought I’d complile the ultimate scooter related list. It’s a bit of a mixed bag, UK, US, Europe, Worldwide, Shops, Clubs, Blogs, Forums and Individual Scooterists; I should probably sort it into some categories, but that’s for another day.

If you’re not on it, you probably don’t follow me on Twitter (@CrocodileJock – if you want to follow me I’ll add you to the list). If you don’t want to be on list, let me know, I’ll take you off.
