I really enjoyed seeing other peoples rides... so heres mine, past to present

It all started with a Vespa 90 back in 1986, it had been my dads for some years (payment for a job he did on someones car) I sprayed it blue when I was 16 in the hope he would let me have it... but he said no so I just used to ride it up and down the Sidings.
Image

So again in 1989 I asked again and this time he said yes so I sprayed it again.

Image

Rode it for about 3 months but it was so slow, I gave it back and used my grant cheque to buy a PX125
cant find a picture but I sprayed it with rattle cans and used marker pens to great effect. Changed the engine to a T5. Then in '90 - me & it got wrote off. Bought a frame off a mate and put the T5 in it.
Image
It was red originally with "Orgasmic Nightmare" graphics on it (Demented are Go).
By now the T5 engine had a Pinasco 166 on it and I loved it.
Image
All ready for Exmouth (2 girls really do need that much luggage!)

But on the way home it went bang with a major heat seize, so back to standard.

Image
1992 and a new look ready for a trip to the South of France and a 200 standard engine from Kev Stannard.
I rode my trusty P2 everywhere for the next 8 or 9 years until she was laid up in need of TLC (still awaiting)

Image

In the meantime we'd had a combo but once mine came off the road I used that one - with and without the sidecar. 3 up to Buxton being the most memorable :lol:
Image
Image
By around 2003 I was fancying a Lambretta so off we popped up to Totally Scooters and I saw a lovely big chunky Lambretta with a nice turning front mudguard - (I knew nothing about Lambrettas) I was told it was a Spanish Series 2, Winter Model. Ok I thought! - I like the look of it so I had it
Image
He insisted that I have a TS1 in it

Then the TS1 went bang on the way to Sweden
Image
In 2009 I opted for a SIL 200 top end on it and (touch wood) its barely skipped a beat with countless miles on it covering the length and breadth of the country and N.Ireland and Spain.
Image

Next up is a Lambro, hopefully on the road this year - watch this space.
Image

Sorry if I've gone on a bit :oops: but thats me 21 years non stop scootering. Heres to the next 21 :D

Did I meet you at the Scootopia open day on your winter model? Always good to put names to faces.
