Bought my first scooter as soon as I turned 17 (Vespa PX125 - still got it as its currently residing as a "feature" in the back garden) - could have got one earlier but couldn't be arsed wasting my time on a 50cc !
Never done the mod thing - it was always about the scooter and the "Scooterboy Scene" at that time in 1986, joined the Roadrunners when The Cricketers was the venue.
Did most of the NSRA runs (as they were then) up to 1991/2ish when the club sort of lost its way and drifted towards the Bolton Spartans.
During that time did most of the runs on a GP200 (purchased new from Turners) but also produced the custom Lambretta chopper "Heroin" as featured in Scootering Sept 1990 (still got that too !).
Went through the wilderness years, although always kept scooters in garage, until I was persuaded to do the Bridlington rally 2006 on "Heroin" - cheers lads (was in traction for a week - choppers are a young man's game !!!).
As I said before, it was always about the scooters to me and making em go faster whilst still retaining the classic engines and lines - currently have T5 Mk1 (190 kit), SX125 (TS1-225), Li125 Series 1 (TS1-225), Heroin chopper SX125 (205 stage 4), PX200E (std) & Primavera (135 kit) - not one mirror or anything else non-aerodynamic to be seen - ha ha.
Nice to be back doing it and great to see the Roadrunners flourishing again !!!
