ISLE OF MAN SCOOTER RALLY 2014

Last weekend, the Isle of Man played host to the 2014 Scooter Rally, now a bi-annual social event attended by Scooter Clubs from the UK, and this year, from France. On the Saturday morning, (June 28th) a signing was held for Scooter Mania at Lexicon Bookshop in Douglas. Ex competitor Les Moore was on hand to talk to visiting scooterists.


Steve Jackson commented about the 2014 rally:
"At 11.00, the scooters congregated at the TT grandstand, where members of the Isle of Man Scooter Club were on hand to marshal the ride-out. Around 250 machines left en mass from the grandstand, down Summerhill onto the promenade, on to Ramsey via the coast, returning to Douglas via the mountain road. Final destination was the Cat with no Tail in Onchan, were a BBQ and music was laid on. Amongst the visitors I spoke to were a couple Isle of Man Rally veterans, it was great to hear their memories first hand, and to see that they are still riding and keeping the faith!"
