What the SLUK?

ScooterLab.uk (SLUK) is about scooters, scooter riders and the scooterist lifestyle. And scooters. Did I mention scooters?

ScooterLab was founded by specialist scooter journalists Iggy and Sticky (although Sticky left in 2017 to write a few books but still writes for SLUK on a regular basis).  

ScooterLab makes full use of new technology. It’s a slick custom-built responsive site so it will look great on any device. SLUK’s manifesto includes video content and user interactivity; both of which are difficult to achieve in print.

SLUK is five years old in March 2021 and has grown in ways none of us could imagine. Help us fill the tank and keep on SLUKing…

ScooterLab is by scooterists, for scooterists.

We need your help

Scooter Lab isn’t a sideline for us, this is our passion and full-time business, scooter riding is our lifestyle and we’ve put our necks on the line to set this website up. 

Although it’s free for you to read and interact with, it takes serious money to build, develop and maintain. You’ll notice that there are some adverts throughout the site, these advertisers have had faith in us and trust in our integrity, they also help to pay the bills. We’ve tried to make these adverts as unobtrusive as possible, you won’t find pop-ups or other annoying ways to grab your attention. Don’t ignore them though, if you’re looking for scooter parts, services or anything else you see advertised on here give these people a try. You can click the ads and go straight through to their virtual shop window.

If you like Scooter Lab pass it on, add, like or pin us to your social networking profiles. Tag us in Facebook posts, hash tag #SLUK or #ScooterLabUK on Twitter and be sure to tell as many people as you can about us. The more SLUKers we get on board the more we can do and the more interactive the site will become. SLUK is the first port of call for the latest and freshest scooter news – make sure you read it here first…

 See you on the road!

We’re also running a trial for targeted adverts with Mediavine, these ones may be more annoying but we’ll see how they go for a month or so…

MEET THE RATS…..

Scooter Lab is brought to you by a dysfunctional team of individuals, many of which were described on their school reports as ‘Will never amount to much.’ Determined to prove their tutors wrong, they set out on a life of hedonistic scooter abuse and ended up here… Maybe the teachers had a point after all.

It’s not often you’ll see Iggy without a crash helmet, either he has a permanent unsightly cold sore or is extremely ugly. Either way he loves riding scooters of all kinds. His personal favourites are 1958 Series 1 Lambretta and custom PX 210, but he also loves and appreciates the modern machines. You’ll see him out and about on rallies, although he’s been described as ‘Disappointing in real life’ so steer clear…

Iggy

Owner of numerous classic scooters for road and race use as well as a tired Yamaha Tmax. Sticky is the author of The Complete Spanners Manual for Lambretta Scooters and freelanced for the worlds biggest scooter mags since 1986. He often chooses to do things the hard way simply for the challenge. Like racing a Vespa in the Sahara and riding his Lambretta SX to Ukraine. Also able to find Clit without a map, thanks to handy signposting in Romania…

STICKY

Col is one of those characters anybody who has even been on a scooter rally will have undoubtedly bumped into. If you’re lucky enough to call him a friend he’ll keep you entertained for hours with his photographic memory. You can ask him the date of pretty much any rally and he’ll tell you, he’ll also let you know what was on the patch and can quite often recite the write-up published after an event – word for word. Col does most of our nostalgic rally features.
