VVC Spring 2018 Journal - arriving soon..

Just putting the finishing touches to the Veteran Vespa Club's Spring 2018 Journal and my first outing as new editor of the long running VVC quarterly club magazine.

In issue No.74 of the VVC JOURNAL you can expect some great reading on classic Vespa scootering on far away (and not so far away) shores, a chat with an illustrious scooter friend, update on the VVC's upcoming 2018 events and of course some great photography... naturally!


The first Journal of 2018 will be printed at the end of January and sent out to club members shortly afterwards. To get your hands on a copy, if you're not already, you will need to register as a VVC member. With solo annual membership starting at only £15 this represents pretty good value - even if you can't get to any of the club's three annual events, you will still receive the club's quality magazine four times a year, as well as access to the members pages on the VVC website and Facebook page.

2017 Vespa GTS 300 Sei Giorni | ScooterLab UK - ROAD TEST

I read Andy Gillard's interesting feature on the original Vespa 6-day racer in issue 4 of ScooterNova magazine a while ago but only recently read Andy's road test on the new Vespa GTS 300 Sei Giorni for SLUK which you can read on the ScooterLab UK site here

To discover more on the parentage of the new GTS and the original Sei Giorni racer it is directly descended from, check out ScooterNova issue 4 which you can order on back issue here

Scooteristen magazine No.101

A very nice new year arrival in my letterbox..

.. just love this cover shot of Katarina Karlsson on her lovely 1964 Steve McQueen themed Lambretta TV175, photographed by Rizwan Wikholm.

To subscribe to Scooteristen you first need to become a member of Svenska Scooterklubben, entitling you to receive their quarterly published club magazine - subscribe here

The mag is written solely in Swedish and I guess it could benefit from being written additionally in English alongside the Swedish texts.. however it is the magazine of Svenska Scooterklubben and maybe they're happy keeping things small scale and reasonably local, which I can relate to. I notice French scooter magazine Scooters & Style is now written in English, as well as their native French, which wasn't always the case. Applying this to Scooteristen would no doubt mean an increased page count and associated costs which all add up. I recently downloaded on my phone a photo text translation app which works well. The resulting Swedish to English translation wasn't what could be described as the "Queen's English" but it was definitely passable, allowing me to read Scooteristen.

Tack så mycket or thanks very much to editor Micke Nilson; I always appreciate getting a copy of the excellent Scooteristen magazine ; )
