7 .....What Scooters do you own Currently running an LML with a 150 barrel on it and a Sito exhaust. It’s my main form of transport and I do about 60 miles a day on it. Have to say that although people knock them but it runs like a dream, is well built and has been 100% reliable....

17.....Best dealer Progress Classic Scooters
18.....Worst dealer experience Unfortunately the guy I bought the LML from is a total liability. Lovely bloke, well meaning and honest but with the mechanical aptitude of a small rodent. I now know that everybody else knows this and like everyone else still go to him to buy parts / chat / drink tea but I don’t let him anywhere near my scooter....
19.....How did you find out about the AFSC? Recommended by the lads at work because they knew I’m a Help for Heroes supporter
