Got mine yesterday, never really been into magazines for hobbies before but I was gripped by the up coming clubman tests so subscribed for the year.
Not to impressed with the new Lambretta though, looks to much like a revamped Scamadi.

I see they've nailed the demographic again with the advertising inclusion...

Must think only old people with back problems read scootering. Probably not far wrong :lol: never put really old people in the adverts though

The last 2 issues have had completely inappropriate/untargeted adverts in them loose.

Every subscription I've had own the past 5 years has had a t least one copy go missing too.

Now 'scooter nova' is out I am afraid 'scootering''s days are numbered and I've become less than impressed with CSS of late also, the quality of the articles etc has gone downhill fast.

Scootering was getting slagged off about 6 months back and suddenly upped it's game but that seems to be waning now again unfortunately.

well that's true, however it seemed to be a peak of moaning at the time.

It upped it's game and I for one was saying how good it then was on FB etc.
Sadly it has take a nose dive since.

I sincerely hope it can get its mojo back as I've been buying it since issue 1 and barely missed one.

They really do need to sort out the 'missing' copies however.

That's got to be the WORST front cover picture in Scootering EVER!!! (I've been getting Scootering since the first edition)
Totally embarrassing to have that monstrosity on public view......... may as well have a Honda Melody on the front cover
