Frankenstein Scooters to Dracula's Castle

Frankenstein Scooters to Dracula's Castle
HorizonsUnlimited description:

‘My family don’t do easy. Tracy and I ride vintage scooters: a Maicoletta and a Lambretta respectively, but not standard ones. Ours are unique, radically modified scooters fitted with motorcycle engines. Frankenstein’s monsters, built in a shed.

‘We are riding to Istanbul with our friend Dean on another Lambretta. Doing the trip one-up would be too easy, so his daughter is riding pillion and I’m taking my 11-year old son.

‘Straight to Turkey through Greece? Nope; too easy. Instead we are going via Romania. We’ll stop off at Vlad the Impaler’s house on the way, to see if he can come out to play. I’ll bring a Frisbee…’

Sticky is a freelance writer, former editor of Scootering Magazine and best-selling author. This book is more than a travel journal; it’s the insightful out-pouring of a mind that’s been pickled in two-stroke fumes for thirty years.

Sex, murder, war, politics and religion – all these are briefly glossed over, before the book moves to more important subjects. How can you cross a continent on a vintage scooter without the wheels falling off; and more importantly, what to do when that happens.
