Phoenix Rising: PETROL 2010

February 8th, 2010

Well, the phoenix has officially risen, so to speak, not quite from the ashes, but you get the drift. If you’ve just joined us, WELCOME to the all-new PETROL Scooter Magazine website. Former readers will recall that publishing of the print version of PETROL ended after ISSUE.08. All good things come to an end as the saying goes. At least we saved a few trees and I managed to get some sleep. But as one chapter ends, another one begins and here we are in 2010 and a fresh start. Things don’t feel quite as futuristic as Stanley Kubrick’s vision of 2010 but there’s no doubting that the digital revolution is well and truly upon us. As I type I’m hearing reports that Britain has officially pulled out of recession, so if you believe everything you hear on the news, things can only get better right?

Over the past month or so we’ve been working hard to get those wheels back in motion. So you’ll find some new content and some old content, we’ve resurrected some of the features from previous issues of PETROL and immortalised them digitally for your enjoyment. Bear with us while we continue building the website, filling any gaps and adding more content. When the weather starts to improve we’ll be getting out and about to bring you more in the way of brand new custom features, event reports along with anything else that we feel may be of interest to you scooter people. This is where you can get involved, if you’d like to become a contributor to PETROL then drop us a line. If you know of a custom scooter that you think might be worthy of a feature then get in touch.

Worth a mention is PETROLHEDZ. What we want to do here on the PETROL website is build an online community for all scooterists. Signing up as a member won’t cost you anything. It simply means you’ll be able to receive newsletters, discounts and special offers from us, you’ll be able to access all areas of the website (including the forum) and from time to time we’ll run competitions which will only be open to fellow PETROLHEDZ.

As I look back then on the early PETROL years with rose-tinted glasses, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped out or supported the magazine in its previous incarnation. So without further ado, sit back, relax and enjoy the new website. Spread the word!
