I outfit my Vespa with them too when it gets cold here and it really makes the ride enjoyable. It was 41F here yesterday and I had to turn the heated grips off!

Nice! When I had the skirt on my Helix, I used bungles on the left side back part. Made getting that part off and on easier and kept the skirt tight to reduce wind flapping.

When you buy the Tucano Urbano Termoscud made specifically for
your scooter, attach and inflate it, there's no flapping around, you
don't even know it's there.

It's an amazing product.

Didn't seem to work that way on the Helix. Not sure it inflated. The one I had on a Silverwing inflated but don't think the one for the Helix did.

In any event, with the bungee it was easy on off and yes, it is an amazing product. I only stopped using the when I moved south and didn't need it anymore.

Pic,

I mostly get little boys pointing at me and pulling on their mothers' sleeves.
Nice, what is that? Looks kind of Salsbury, a bit.

Not me but my neighbor. I remember his Dad riding this Vespa to work. What was a workhorse is a collector's item today.

Who said scooters don't get any respect on the road. I'm glad that's a recoil-less rifle or else the scooter would go backwards as far as the shell goes forward.
