To all members and non members of the YSA thinking of going to Holland this year. Please take note that the deadline for receiving the YSA discount for the ferry finishes at the end of February,we have tried in vain to make P&O extend this deadline but they won't budge.
Basically it means you will still be able to book from March but the price goes up every week,to secure your cabin before the deadline call on our dedicated hotline number 087166646464 quoting Yorkshire Scooter Alliance and give them the booking number 81730. Please see flyer on YSA Facebook and web site for more information.
The cost of the crossing will double and treble by the time the Allied Invasion comes round so now is the time to book-up. To present we have approximately 180 cabins left ( for a 4 berth with scooter it works out at about £ 85 per person) so it is very good value for money.
Thank you the YSA events team.

Sneaked up a bit this has this year!! (don't ask about that GTS!) .. Entered the garage today, drawn towards a mountain of bike jackets/keks/gloves/rags/carriers/bungees/wood(?)/catboxes(??) and other random shit..
Under this pile of loveliness I discover a white taffspeed RS210. mmmm,yeah I vaguely remember this forlorn creature.. from December last year,preston selection box run..6 months ago!
Anyhow..chucked a new throttle cable on it(did the other cables 12months ago),cleaned jets/air filter ect.. changed the gear oil, sprayed white grease liberally around owt that moved.. and then thought ..best see if it starts?
FIRST 'KIN KICK.. NEVER does that...should I be worried??
..Almost sorted then..just need to find Elaines passport(mines there but not hers??) and the V5 so I can tax it(prob with Es passport!).. and sort travel insurance out..

ANDREW.. Ill give ya a bell next week pal regarding meet ect..

I'm just on the phone as I type this getting a quote for travel insurance. Just need to go to Taffs to get a few bulbs etc. The quote is for £13.15, I've accepted it. I know you can get cheaper but it's a pain to make these phone calls and listen to the same old drivel they're forced to read out to you.
Gettin' excited Ste. Think it's your turn in the beer and banana race this time

Ste sorry to read about your scooter. Sounds like it came from the same place mine did. In the end and after so much fookin about for months I got a full refund out of them but then they charged me extra for the free stuff I got with the scoot total £3.95. Would never go back and got my replacment scoot from Yorkshire which is perfect and without a blip thank gawd and even got 100 notes knocked off plus free fuel.

Best to be aware though Ste so as not to be fobbed off and I should have taken note what was up on the old LA forum about someone else having the same trouble a few years ago with the same place. Silly old me. Don't think that shop realised they were dealing with a MOD!



Just to update this: I see a couple of scooter lads on the net have new GTS300's that will not start. Makes you wonder if a new batch have come through with some sort of electronic fault?? Another lad has been quoted over 300 notes for a basic service. Bloody ell, what with insurance it must make for a deeeer doo? My insurance flew up last year as was told 'having a small bike is more expenive now as so many light bikes get pinched'. You just cant bloody win.

Scooter MOTd and all ready for Holland
It's crept up on me quick but I've even sussed a better way at the other side, through the country instead of all those bloody traffic lights we did last time.
Can't wait to get going now. Weather is looking good, beer cheap and plenty of "exotic entertainment"

Just got back from Holland. What a crackin' time we had

Sheenie had a blowout at 50+mph on the way, just after Clithroe. What a hero. He kept it upright with Wendy on the back. The wheel was knackered and the tyre had a hole in it and a split round the side.
Seems like he'd hit a bolt in the road which flicked up and put a little crack in the front of Ste's helmet. We changed the wheel to his spare (using the Vespa emergency tyre change tool which I can supply you for £7) and carried on.
In the morning when he rode off the ferry the tyre was rubbing on the shock. It seemed OK the day before but this time he wasn't getting any further on it.
People where there to help straight away and couldn't do enough for us. Paul from Grimsby got his Dutch mate Martin to trailer the scoot to Heerjansdam and back and give Sheenie and Wendy a lift.
After that what could possibly go wrong?
Nothing did! We all did the usual stuff and made loads of new mates.
Paul had one little mishap on the way back following Sheenie who was in the van. A pin in his gear change twist grip broke. Martin's son sorted it with a pop rivet and everybody got back to the ferry.
Just need another 5 days to sleep it off now, then it's the Pogues do. Can't wait.
