Scootering  |  398 - August 2019  

I’ve always been a keen boxing fan, and this quote is attributed to the
greatest, Muhammad Ali…

“Impossible is just a big word thrownaround by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” The truth, however, is that it was just some blurb put together by ‘creative ad professionals’ Aimee Lehto and Boyd Coyne, who plastered it over a picture of Ali… thus it's often wrongly attributed to him.

Still, it’s a great quote! At a time when Ali was at his peak, he was a sponsored athlete of Adidas (can you see where I’m going with this now?).
The brand’s creator (Adi Dassler) had set out to create the world’s best sports shoe, and though Nike might disagree, I think he did just that. Like many other objects and brands which 80s’ sub-culture took under its wing,
Adidas holds a special place in the hearts of many scooterists… me
especially. Specifically the ‘Originals’ range. I do think it’s all become
a bit commercialised, and over-hyped now, but (sadly) what hasn’t
these days? So when I saw a street racer Lambretta, with a Taylor Tuned engine, and an Adidas Spezial paintjob by DTC… I damn near wet myself.

Picking the cover scooter is often a very tricky task, and although Stef’s Vespa (see p58-62) was a VERY strong contender, for purely selfish reasons it had to be Sole Racer. Sorry Stef. Elsewhere in the mag, Stan has given us
an insight into the changes at Scomadi UK, a welcome update for all Scomadi owners, I’m sure. We have cracking reports from Kelso, Big 7 and Animal Antics, plus another four ‘readers’ rally reports’, too. The Kickstart
section is bustling with industry news and products, and Christian found a stonker of a VBB rusteration story to report on.

Scootering magazine is your one-stop shop for everything scooter-related so you can ensure you’re getting the most out of your hobby. Every issue contains the best examples of customised and restored Lambretta and Vespa scooters in the world to really fuel your obsession. Scootering magazine also brings you the latest updates on events, rides, rallies and more so you’ll never miss a big event again. You can also enjoy throwback scooter photos and the best scooter stories from yesteryear.

If that’s not enough, Scootering magazine also has a music section which brings you reviews, interviews and event exclusives from your favourite bands.

If you’re mad about scooters, you wouldn’t want to miss Scootering magazine, so subscribe today and enjoy every issue delivered directly to your device each month, often before anyone else in the UK!
