Every year in August, the Isle of Wight -- one of the most popular holiday destinations in the United Kingdom -- plays host to thousands of vintage scooters and their colourful owners.

Called the Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally, the event has been around since 1980 and has grown in proportion every year.

Rediff.com takes its readers on a tour of the world's largest scooter festival, which concluded on August 25.
