John Taylor

We received news last week that John Taylor sadly passed away, not long after attending the ISDT Centennial ride. I had the privilege of meeting John whilst Doug Miller & I were doing the Beamish Trophy Trial last year. John’s scootering history goes way back to the 60’s.

He wrote a brilliant account of his scootering exploits in this book ‘The Life of ALE’, all seen through the eyes of his beloved Lambretta 694 ALE.

John continued to enjoy his love of scootering pretty much up to his last few days. He was the ultimate scooter competitor.

I’ll miss Johns emails and stories of his escapades over the moors of the North Pennines.

RIP John
