you'd hit it in a heartbeat.
My around town grocery getter and my dual sport decked out with fashionable milk crates.
Who's the bigger dork, the dork or the dork that follows him? I have a Cushman stepthru and Tomos moped ride on brother!
Im realizing now I should've bought a scoot in the first place.
Alright, add me to the milk crate crowd. Went shopping on my Elite 80 and it has no top box, yet.
will a new Weber Grill fit in the milk crate?
I'm from National Dairy and i"m sending the cops.
That grille still works, no need for a new one.
Ive had that crate for years and its been on a bunch of different bikes. Never an issue.
Just don't over-decorate your milk crate with chair holders or flag poles...
you scooter purists are all alike - insufferable.
I can see that I'm obviously under utilizing mine. Attaching, cantilevering.....the crate is only a starting point.
My rule of thumb is, if it doesn't fit in my backpack, it ain't comin' with me.
Personally I think the milk-crate thing is lame-looking, but that's just me.. .hey, IT WORKS, IT'S SUPER-CHEAP & let's be honest----if you cared what people thought, you probably shouldn't ride a scoot to begin with
It's getting harder to steal a real milk crate these days. What is super dorkie is a fake milk crate from Walmart.
Back to the question from the OP. "How big of a dork am I?" Duh, how much do you weigh?
I rock a milk crate (well, I paid ~$3 for an "office folder crate," it's bright green - and then I stuck reflectors on it) for grocery-getting but I take it off when not in use. Gotta preserve the classy lines of my Stella as much as I can!
Seeing how milk crates are really rare around these parts I went and got one of the Plano soft fishing boxes.
And because I used to cycle tour I have a few old Norco touring bags..
I guess this kicks me out of the Cool Dorks Club...
Don't worry... they're dorky too
yeah, but dorks are always near the action.
Took the Novara grocery bag panniers off my bike and put it on my MadAss; I think they're cool, but that makes me a dork I guess.
I actually put those Novara panniers back on my bicycle and attached Wald metal baskets (that fold flush when not in use). I think they're even cooler, which makes me even dorkier!
No basket for me. Not that I am opposed to them. I roll OKie style on my road trips. I am one gneration away from the true OKie "load up the family car- we're moving to CA" type move your existence/family/furniture/clothes in the family car/truck.
I will be laden the same way this weekend and I will have new shots of dork-ness for your amusement.
As to the comment about YARDSALE and his crate/chair/flagpole/Vespa/crap mobile, it would take more time that I care to explain. If you want the whole story, read the old posts over at Modern Vespa.
