Scooter Newsletter - January 2007
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a great Christmas!
The New Year is shaping up very nicely so far except that we haven’t been able to finish painting the front of the shop! We did start and are hoping to finish up over the Australia Day long weekend.
The paint job on the inside looks terrific and we will be adding a customer lounge and another TV soon. As you can see from the photo, the red walls look just fantastic (thanks to Mark, Jono, Jodie and Liz for their help). It has really brightened up the shop and we hope you will enjoy all the changes we are making to create the ultimate scooter shop.
The new scooter showroom paint job - Red goes faster
Also we have increased our spare parts and accessories again this month. We have Malossi and Lotek T-shirts in stock now to add to our ScootaChic clothing and bags. ScootaChic T-shirts are designed for the discerning female scooterist and they are very glam with either a stylised girl on a scooter (as per the bag) or with “scootachic” embroidered (not an iron on) across the bust.

We also have a range of batteries, of scooter related Motul products (including the best 2 stroke oil for your scooter), Malossi products including roller sets, Kevlar bets, jets and more, Gianelli Performance Exhausts, Renthal handlebars, handgrips, disk locks, cable locks, waterproof scooter covers – the list just goes on and on! Drop in and check them out.
And of course, Scott has fitted a heap of Malossi and Gianelli accessories to his PMX Naked and he is so happy with the result it is hard to keep the smile of his face! He is onto his next project on the PMX Naked now. Soon it will have a fully customised sticker kit fitted to it the like you have never seen before! This is why you haven’t seen him riding it lately – it is out the back of the shop looking forlorn as all the plastics are off being measured so that the sticker kit will fit like a glove.
Gmax 150 - Bolwell Scoota
Another sports scooter we have in stock at the moment is the G-Max 150. It has a 4 valve four stroke engine, disk brakes front and rear, mono-shock suspension, sporty styling – it is a real humdinger! And of course, it looks really hot.
We have a Cream Mio 50 on display down at Hard Coffee in Bay Village on Hastings Street. There has always been a strong link in our minds between scooters and coffee – if you feel the need for caffeine drop in to Hard Coffee and give their coffee making skills a workout.
Scooter Style Hire
Our hire fleet is increasing all the time; we now have Orange Mio 50’s, a Pink Mio 50 and Silver Red Devils. Scott took this quick picture of some of them out the front of the shop just the other day – as you can see they are pretty stylish.

Scooter Style Events!!!!!!!!
Okay – in the December newsletter we said we were planning a get together in January to celebrate the new paint job… but, we haven’t finished painting yet! So we are going to postpone until February!
We are going to have a sausage sizzle on Saturday 24th February at Scooter Style, 175 Eumundi Road, Noosaville so we can show off our new paint job and the new and improved interior of the store. We will start about 10am and would love you to drop in and join us in celebrating our new look.
Tips for Scooting
This month’s tip – securing your scooter!
There are various methods of security which come with your scooter – the steering lock, immobiliser switch and sometimes an ignition lock.
· Steering Lock – initiated by turning your key in the ignition to the padlock symbol and moving the handlebars to the left. This will lock your steering to the left making it difficult for someone to simply wheel away your scooter.
· Immobiliser Switch – is located either on the right-hand side of your handlebars or under the seat. When this switch is turned off, the scooter cannot be started. This is a good one to check if for any mysterious reason your scooter won’t start!
· Ignition Lock – this is activated by turning the key to the flat hexagonal side and inserting into the area near the ignition. A cover will flick over concealing the ignition.
