Here are a few more , at first you think WOW that thing is huge . But after you get used to it , you start thinking I wish I would have made it bigger .
Naturally with one of these boxes installed you can't carry a passenger .

If you look at the pic of the custom black BR you'll see I actually had that one made 4 inches deeper and 3 inches wider .

You inspired me

After reading your thread today I decided to make my Vino a bit more useful as a grocery-getter. I didn't want to spend much so I went with a milk crate and some zip ties. Man, it feels good having the extra carrying capacity. I don't give a hoot how it looks, though to my eye it doesn't look too bad.

To start, I had to do some cutting otherwise I couldn't access the gas cap. I used a hacksaw blade. Took me about five minutes to cut out by hand.

After:

I really liked what this guy does with his scooter. Acts like a truck/van. 2 seater ride to pick up the kid at school/etc. Really useful.

From what I know you can milk crate the rear or you have the secure box option.



This guy lives near me, we've ridden together several times. He's a nice guy. He rides a Burgman a lot recently.


I never particularly liked hardcases. I used to think they were awesome, but after having a ridiculously huge topcase for a while, I feel like they're bulky and add a lot of weight. I much prefer the option to remove my luggage.

I added an aftermarket rear rack and can strap so much cargo on there in rolltop bags or backpacks that it's silly.



There's a backpack strapped on the rolltop waterproof bag on the back. I could strap another backpack on the seat, and another couple bags on top. The tunnel bag holds a bunch of crap too, and I can fit a full face helmet + jacket under the seat (though my current helmet's visor makes it a bit too big).

A few old pics from when I installed the rack...




I'm going to take it to get powdercoated pearlescent or black sometime soon; the paint on there now is flaking off.

Small scoot with topbox and bikers friend roll bag. Add in the floor space and the little scoot really gets it done.





Be Big,

<Emperor Ming voice mode> No one, but no one Emperor Ming voice mode> loads up scooters like they do in S. E. Asia.

For the rest of us in the western world where there are road rules to contend with; there are options such as the Inder single-wheel trailer to pack some luggage that is too bulky (or heavy) for the scoot itself:

Anyone here have a Roketa ? I worked near a place that sold them, haven't heard much about them lately.

Delivery scooters are quite common in Europe.
If you want to deliver a little bit more, you take one of the 3-wheeled scooters.
The Ape50 (49ccm 2 stroke) can carry up to 170kg and 1500 litres in her trunk. The 218ccm model 700kg and 2500 litres!
This is an Ape50 converted to an advertising vehicle:

Yeah I think that might be a postal scoot. I should have picked some of those up when I was there. My boss is there right now, I could ask if he's next to a scooter shop.

No promises....
