: As promised, we have pics from the NEC show for your perusal and
I also took time-out to do a write-up for those of you who missed the show.
: Dragster Gallery 10 is finally here, as usual, more to come.
: November is showtime and yesterday's trip to the The
International Motorcyle & Scooter Show at the NEC in Birmingham revealed two things; firstly,
scooters are more popular than ever with a number of new models set for 2002 and secondly, despite this
the Dragster still remained the most radical scooter at the show. Peugeot's 'Metal X' proved quite
interesting with a number of trick add-on's available for it, I was surprised to see a lack of emphasis on
the new 'Ice' at Gilera's stand though, this bike looks stunt-tastic and a must-have 'throw about' scoot
in my opinion. But the highlights of the show for me were not only the laydeez... but the concept bikes
that were on display - superb.
A full report of the show and pics to follow...
: Santa Pod fucked up, the date for the Santa Pod Hijack is now
