(4 Ratings)
"NOT ONE STEP AHEAD, BUT A HALF—ENOUGH TO MAKE PEOPLE RETHINK WHAT A SCOOTER COULD DO FOR THEM AND THEY WITH IT." That was the philosophy behind the creation of one of Yamaha's most... More > popular two-wheeled vehicles, the CV80 "Beluga"—known as the "Riva" when it was released in the United States in 1983 and by various other nicknames around the world until the model was discontinued in 1987. It also sums up the author's experiences over several years of owning and tinkering with one and then another CV80, as well as a few other vintage motor scooters. "HALF A STEP AHEAD" is a personal and practical guide that's accessible enough to encourage a novice, yet sufficiently technical to offer insights of value to even the most practised scooter mechanic. Though things seldom go according to the author's plan, what's most important (as he discovers) is learning to enjoy the ride.< Less

The Flight of Kings: Royalty-in-Exile in Wartime London By Brian Jeffrey Street
eBook (PDF): $2.50
For all that has been written about the whole shocking drama of the Second World War, it is odd that historians have virtually ignored the curious role played in London by nearly a dozen European... More > royal families. Yet this exodus of refugee monarchs to Shakespeare’s “scepter’d isle” deserves something more than marginal reference in the annals of the twentieth century’s most horrific conflict. For in their posh suites at Claridge’s and the Ritz, the exiled royalty of Europe performed what Winston Churchill called “a beggar’s opera” that was at times amusing, often sad, but seldom dull.

The current edition includes a new foreword by the author.< Less
