« on: January 06, 2016, 09:43:41 AM »
Hi Guys,

The covers so far I seen is the Oxford Aquatex and Bikewise, im looking for something nice and durable
but will not break the bank.

Same goes for the chain can you help?

Hi, I have just spent some time in Barcelona - the city of the scooter! These are used almost without exception - it connects the handlebar to the seat bracket securely and stows away under the front of the seat.

Unfortunately here in SA the only option seems to be the Disc Lock or the old fashioned chain and padlock. While the disk lock looks very impressive - driving off with it in place doesn't bear thinking about. And a chain can be easily cut! Not much help I'm afraid!  :dontknow:

Driven off with the disclock on, normally happens in front of a crowd of spectators, not good for one's dignity  :rofl:
A length of cord of your chooing attached to the disc lock on one end and a red cover that slips over the throttle, that you ask the missus to sew up for you solves the problem nicely.

There is something otherworldly about the scream of a two stroke at full cry, leaned over at 45 degrees while the slipping rear tyre tries to dislodge you from your perch atop the slewing beast.
