I don't know why Scootering doesn't employ a proper photographer. And why are their rarely photos of machines taken in a studio, where the lighting is perfect? This is a situation that Dan has inherited from Andy, and an area in which he could make a real improvement to the magazine.

There's only so many scooters photographed with a slight fuzz and blue tinted filter I can stomach.
I've bought a couple of issues recently and started looking with an open mind and always finish thinking I've wasted money.

Anyways let's not clog the thread by going off topic.

The vid of the start up has had nearly 300 views in less than 24 hours on GoodThing80's 8-)

Love the grips, it's a stumbling block I'm at with the build. They make or break a Lammy I think

Excellent.
I've got my eyes open for one but never see any.
Would like one just to paint up to go with the bike for display.
Gonna get a Biltwell Gringo for riding as they have "the look"
