    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

    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.
