    Hi all,
    Its been a while since I posted some pics of the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally here. So long in fact the whole flipping way this site works has changed.

    For those of you who don't know the IOW is a little island just of the south coast of the UK and every year on August bank holiday weekend the biggest scooter rally in the world attracts 5000 scooters and their riders over the water. They spend the weekend buzzing around the island and meeting up to compare scoots. I have tried to capture a flavour of the event and some of the more unusual scoots and I hope you like it.

    All the best FBS

    I've just got home from that!
    Great photos...you've saved me spending time posting mine,heh heh.
    And wow...this year I managed the round trip without getting wet!

    8 hour ride home on minor roads,including a skiddy "oh sheet" moment in a 50mph corner when a big copper nail burst my rear tyre.....managed to stay on and avoid colliding with anything.
    Thanks to the spare wheel on my PX,I was back on my way in about 20 minutes.

    Thanks for the pics. That's on my radar now. Ship the scoots to the UK and ride down to the IOW. Don't imagine there'd be too many scoots with Canadian plates.

    Thanks for sharing your pics! Looks like it was an incredible event. Loved the Lambretta pictures - especially the one hauling his own pub!
