    Alright, add me to the milk crate crowd. Went shopping on my Elite 80 and it has no top box, yet.

    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...

    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 :lol3

    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?:rofl

    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...:cry

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.
