Isle of Wight Scooter Rally 2010

Proclaimed as the biggest scooter rally in the world the little island I live on is host to 6000 scooters over the August bank holiday weekend. Most of the action centres in Ryde a classic British seaside town. That said the island is only 60 miles around so you are pretty much going to see a scooter wherever you are this weekend.

I managed to get out and take some pictures on Saturday morning and Ryde was heaving and had a constant whiff of expensive two stroke oil.

I love the smell of two stroke in the morning it reminds me of ........scooters!

This wasn't a show this was just guys and girls parked up and enjoying a day out

Ryde pier in the background which runs old London tube trains as part of the Isle of Wight rail network

Mint classics were everywhere

Traditional Mod style is still popular too

Dapper dan wearing AllTheBlazerAllTheTime

Rustoration is gaining in popularity

One of my personal favourites this has all carbon fibre bodywork a trick tein shock front end and a tuned 250 engine. Very trick very understated.

Did I say it was rammed?


I have aq soft spot for Italjet Dragsters as I used to have a 180 a few years back. This one featured some pimp daddy mods including a flock coated engine casing! Fuzzy engines you saw it here first.

Thought this old rod style was cool

One for the MP3 fans here

And one for the fiat 500 fans. I love puddlejumpers

More rustoration it had an interesting sticker

Might be a good avtar for some one?

I want another one of these.

Lots of work in here

Nice gold leaf work

Nice outfit

These guys sell carbon scooters with normal engines or special engines from RD/RZ Yamaha 350 LC or a tuned 155 was 125 Aprilia. They started the Aprila engined one up ( not pictured) whilst I was there it sounded amazing. With a twin shock twin front brake front end its supposed to handle really well too.

Well thats the lot I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures.

All the best

Treat your throttle and brakes like a pair of b**bies! You go grabbing them hard and you're going to get slapped. You want to massage them nice and smooth. That way the bike will kiss you. Chris Carr
