British Summer Time ends on 29th October, when the clocks ‘fall’ back, heralding the start of chillier and damper journeys.

Fortunately, help is at hand for owners of Piaggio scooters who plan to continue riding through autumn/winter, with a range of weatherproof accessories tailor-made for their vehicles.

Leg covers are popular in Piaggio’s native Italy, providing protection from wind and wet for riders who prefer to wear casual trousers. Designed with a quick and easy mounting system, tailored for each model of scooter, they will not affect stability, even at high speed. Access to ignition and the under-seat storage compartment are built in, along with an integrated waterproof seat cover and anti-theft system. Reflective stripes offer additional passive safety in the dark.

Handlebar muffs shield exposed hands from inclement weather. Made from waterproof material with a thermo-padded polyamide inner lining, they keep hands warm and dry, without needing to invest in special gloves for winter riding.

Scooters also need protection from the elements! Piaggio’s outdoor scooter cover is produced using black waterproof fabric with thermo-taped joints, reflective inserts, a transparent window so the licence plate can be seen without lifting the cover, and PVC coated chain ring, so the cover can be locked at the same time as the bike. Designed with pockets for accessories (e.g. top box, windscreen) and with an adjustable elastic hem, a perfect fit is guaranteed. As a deterrent against thieves, security experts also recommend using bike covers for any scooter parked in a public place.

Prices vary according to the model of scooter – the following are retail prices (including VAT) for the Beverly; bike cover = £78, leg cover = £100 and muffs = £41.

Dave Ball – Master Motorcycle Technician at Fowlers of Bristol – has claimed the runner-up crown at the 2017 Suzuki European Motorcycle Skills Competition, held in Germany on the 20th September.

Dave, who was chosen to represent Britain after winning the UK Championships earlier this year, beat off tough competition to scoop second place.

He pitted his considerable skills against strong opposition from Suzuki winners representing other European countries, working his way through three gruelling practical tasks and an hour-long written examination.

Dave Ball has been with Fowlers for 20 years and his talent has been recognised in several other competitions: he won the Yamaha UK Tech Grand Prix last year, the Suzuki UK Motorcycle Technician of the Year in 2013 and the Yamaha UK Technician of the Year award in 2007.

When asked to comment on Dave’s success, Stephanie Fowler said, “Dave’s achievement is simply outstanding and is the result of his many years of dedication to his chosen career. Fowlers’ policy is to recognise, support and develop talent both in the workshop and throughout the rest of the organisation. The recruitment and training of apprentices has been the lifeblood of our workshop for much of the lifespan of the company, which ensures a constant supply of highly-trained, budding master technicians working their way up through the ranks.”

Fowlers is conveniently located at 2-12 Bath Road, Bristol BS4 3DR, on Bristol’s A38 inner ring road and within a 5-minute walk of Temple Meads mainline railway station.
