My Scooter needs NEONS, SPEAKERS, a Beer holder, SAT NAV, and maybe a rearview mirror.

In-scoot Entertainment System

SO.... next challenge. I think I'm going to look at the basics of my in-house entertainment system! Basically, I need a MP3 player of sorts, and then a way of attaching it. I'm going to focus on something 'pod'-ish. Most my other gear is made by Apple, so it seems sensible to keep it in the family.

My first thought was one of these;
I mean SERIOUSLY, how good would that look on my handlebars? Plus, on a non-scooter related subject, you can buy a little strap thing that turns them into a watch!
Lordy Lordy! Beautiful huh? Unfortunately, I have to be realistic. First of all the iPod nano 6th generation starts in excess of £100, which, considering i'm going to be experimentally strapping to a scooter, may not be the best idea. I'd cry if it pinged off in the middle of the night and some drunken chav found it on his way back to his squat.

So I'm going to set my sights a little lower and go back to the old classic ipod shuffle. The 2nd / 3rd generations are quite reasonably priced now at around £15-£25, and i wouldn't feel quite so bad if I saw it in a pawn shop 2 days after losing it. Plus they come in a lovely vibrant green colour. Look (!);
I've put in a few bids on ebay and will let you know how I get on. Now to figure out how to attach it...


  1. Do you want me to quilt you a strap?? Here's hoping you find one on e-bay.

  2. By the way, did you know that you have your blog settings so that anyone commenting has to type two words as a security thingy to prove that I'm not a robot. Seriously annoying. It might be worth adjusting your settings, and then going back to it if you get a lot of robots commenting.
