On 31st May 2014 I attended the Hayling Island Scooter Rally held at Mill Rythe.
It was a chance to see a huge variety of scooters. Many customized or just lovingly restored by their owners. There was a party atmosphere among the many clubs and individuals that attended. Live music was provided by 'The Corsairs' pumping out their own unique style of punk and rockabilly.
It was a privilege to be able to chat with owners of the scooters and hear some of the background stories behind them. A scooter is not just a means of transport but a way of life and a way of preserving memories from a past era.
These photographs are just a sample and taster of the rally.
There were over 200 scooters with their owners, families and friends in attendance and of course the many visitors like myself soaking up the atmosphere and sights of these colourful machines.
I went along to see this meeting of scooters and clubs and came away with lots of personal stories and a great feeling of comaradery as well as some photographs as a memento of the day.
