    Similar to the above... Both are worse for wear and the lammy in pieces. It pretty much fell apart after mablethorpe.

    Yep, my scoot has been on the road pretty much every day of the year for the past 2 years. i love winter riding, bit slow, but its a good laugh when the back wheel trys to over take the front wheel!

    Careful if you have a disk break though, last year mine seized on due to the salt on the road getting in. that was the last time i came off over a year ago now.

    I havent really stopped riding, either the scooter or the daytona, little bit of cold never hurt anyone. Must invest in some heated gloves this year though.

    Aye its shite, I would get heated grips but I'd need 2 sets, plus apparently the gloves warm your fingers more than grips do.

    Josh's dad mof has them on his rat and they look the bollocks on a rat, just gaffa tape and screw them to the headset, apparently they do make loads of difference.

    go for it, just universal motorcross handguards or something like that, about 15 quid on ebay last i looked, bit of foam to space stuff out and some screws and tape and it'll be a good un.

    stilmotor did make handguards to fit a p-range in the 80s, they crop up on ebay now and again for about £15. Not sure what the craic is with fitting them on a disc model, but I'm sure sure you could easily bodge them... They look gay as fuck mind

    I was talking to Andy Gillard once and he was telling me about one of ideas for when scootering did that budget custom scooter article. He was going to try and do a scooter half and half clear perspex in the style of the lambretta cut-away display bike, with the internals showing.
