Scooter Rallys


We used to attend as many Scooter Rallys as funds would permit. Here are some of the stories.

  • The Southend Scooter Rally 1970
    The Southend Scooter Rally 1970 It was a long old drive to the Southend Rally, Seaweed and I set off I drove up on my GP225 with a tent tied to the Legshields, and Seaweed drove his series 1 with series 2 handlebars. We eventually arrived at around 8.00 in the evening, looking forward to a weekends fun and frolics. The camp site was right on the coast in a large field behind a small Railway Station
  • The Isle of Wight Rally 1970
    The Isle of Wight Rally 1970. The Rally of 1970 was the first of the Scooter rallies to be held on the Island, they are still going I think. It was a truamatic experience for me as the story that Dave tells will show. We all met up by the ferry in Portsmouth if I remember we traveled over to Portsmouth on the Gosport Ferry, We arrived on the Island and started to find our way across to Sandown I had Terry Langridge on the pillion and Dave and Angella Twigg were with us. The Campsite was on a holiday park which had challets for the well off, and a field for the poor among us to pitch the tents. I had a small 2 man tent so of course we had 4 people to sleep in it. Me, Terry, Dave and Angela all squeezed in it, thank goodness it wasn't raining that night, however due to the small area we had to sleep in it was quite cosy.
  • The Comax Rally
    As I recall we started out from outside Rafferty Newmans old Workshops in a convoy heading towards London, At the front was Trevor Aspin guiding us with a compass on his wrist, all was going fine till we hit Guilford, outside the Little Chef there were some traffic lights, some nice person had dropped oil over the road and David Seymour went for a tumble, the police turned up and noticed that Dave didn't have any L plates, they wouldnt let him continue until he had got some, for some reason he had to go back to Gosport to get some. We all waited for him to return after a few hours he reappeared and off we set again.
