Motorcycle travel books have gotten a bit samey of late. Chaps on big adventure bikes on voyages of self discovery enduring hardship through difficult terrain. All been done before. Frankenstein Scooters is a different take, a breath of fresh air. Nothing to prove, no big egos just two wheel enthusiasts enjoying themselves, racking up the miles and providing entertainment.
The book is a great reminder that any two wheeler is the ideal tool for adventure and if setting off on a BMW GS you are limiting your experience quite massively. The scoots are a modified Maicoletta and Lambretta fitted with more recent motorcycle powerplants (hence Frankenstein Scooters), Martin riding one his son pillion, his wife the other. They are joined by mate Dean on a Lambretta with his daughter pillion. The route takes them from home to Istanbul via Romania. Highly recommended, lots of photos and only £9.99.
You could just buy from Amazon but better still you could go for the righteous approach of buying from scooterproducts.co.uk.
