Andy, you said "The reason for the rear rack is to lift and prop up the moped on its center stand."
Do you actually think that's the ONLY reason for a rear rack? If so, you're an idiot. They might as well put a handle on the back of the moped, if that was ALL it was used for.
The racks might help put the bike back on the rest, but it's also for a lot of other things-- like carrying gear, maybe?
Yeah, carrying geaar, and carrying air horns, amplifiers, bookbags, and three speakers. You may have misread my post.
I want a scooter with a rear rack (and a front one if possible). I wasn't looking for a rant about your souped up snail.
I don't know how well my "underseat" compartment would help the speaker sound. My guess is that it might muffle the sound.
I need a scooter with a rear rack. You might speed along, but I've got full stereo sound on my moped. If I upgrade to a scooter I want to be able to install tunes.
If I wanted to do 60 on a machine with tiny wheels and have no music, your scooter would be a great option for me. Plus, I could get those groceries home while trying to hit 70 on a machine with a bag of groceries hanging from the helmet hook. At least the ice cream won't melt.
Jimmy--thanks for your advice on the Zuma. That's more like what I needed.
Andy probably hasn't seen pictures of my bike. I'll link one, and then challenge him to do what I've done to my moped to his scooter. He might do 60, but does he have stereo sound and airhorns with dual pannier packs?
betcha he don't, and couldn't if he wanted to. That's why it's so easy to add a stereo to a moped, and much more difficult on a scooter.
I need a pannier for the stereo gear (Might fit underseat) a good place to mount dual rear speakers and at least one front speaker.
Now that I've clarified the intent of my post, can anyone suggest scooters that would "fit the bill"?
