Scooter Newsletter - December 2006
Just a short note to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We have a great time in the first few months of Scooter Style and are really looking forward to the New Year. Anyone who has dropped in over the past two weeks or so has probably seen the difference in the shop. We have taken over the whole shop and last weekend we painted the inside. There are more changes to come, including a paint job to the outside of the shop and also a heap more accessories are coming in. So pop in and have a look!
The PMX Naked is proving to be very popular (and not surprising really is it pretty cool!). We have now got a few bits and pieces that can be fitted to it to boost performance – Gianelli Exhaust Pipes for example. Scott did swap over to the PMX Naked and he loves it – needless to say he has already put an exhaust pipe on his and he is on the hunt for more bits – like handlebars… It is a heap of fun to ride and looks terrific.
We have had two new scooters arrive in December.
The Jet 100 – this is a 100cc oil injected 2 stroke scooter. It is based on the current Red Devil but it has quite a few differences as you can see from the photo! We have a silver/satin black one in stock and it also comes in a silver/copper colour combination.
And you are interested in doing your Automatic Scooter Licence (this will allow you to ride scooters over 50cc’s); Michael from Sunshine Coast Motorcycle Rider Training can get you going.
Retro 50 - A classy Bolwell Scooter
And the Retro. This is terrific looking retro scooter which comes in black/silver (pictured) or full black. The headlight is fitted on the handlebars (rather than in the body of the scooter like on the Mio) and it has great styling. It also has a lockable glove box (a really handy feature) and the usual luggage hooks and under seat compartment.
And if you feel in the mood for a coffee – why don’t you drop in and see the crew at Hard Coffee in Bay Village on Hastings Street. We have an Orange Mio 50 on display in store and they have a great range of food and of course, really good coffee!
This month we also start stocking ScootaChic clothing. ScootaChic have a range of t-shirts designed especially with the female scootering public in mind. They come in a really good colour range and great slim fit (and a really groovy logo embroidered across the bust with a girl on a scooter).
Scooter Style Hire
The Hire side is all up and running! We have Orange Mio 50’s and Silver Red Devils available for hire (because we figured if you are hiring a scooter in Noosa you want to look pretty cool!).
Prices start from $35 for 4 hours.
Scooter Style Events!!!!!!!!
We will keep you posted but at present we are planning to have a get together at the shop in January to celebrate the new paint job and the New Year!
Brunch at Ma Menza.
Brunch at Ma Mensa on the 3rd December was just terrific – we had a great turn out of people! And we all had a great time. The coffee and food was great (as always at Ma Mensa) – thanks to Gail and everyone at Ma Mensa who helped us to have such a great morning. Hastings Street probably didn’t know what hit it with about 13 scooters parked in two car parks out the front of Ma Mensa. The number of tourists who stopped to take photos of the scooters all lined up was just amazing.
Scooters lined up on Hastings Street Noosa.
Thanks to everyone who came along and thanks to Gail at Ma Mensa for the photos!
Maintaining your Scoot
This month’s tip – Tyre Pressure!
It is very important to check your tyre pressure regularly – having your tyres at the correct pressure will ensure that you have better handling on your scooter and also will assist in better wear on your tyres.
To find out the correct tyre pressure required for your tyres, read the side wall of the tyre – it will tell you all you need to know then pop down to your local servo and you are all done. If you have any questions just pop in and see Scott.
