My simple Cup Holder

My simple Cup Holder

This is a simple Modification. I used a cup holder designed to hang over an open window of an auto. All I did was to cut off the bracket and add two strips of velcro side by side.

It was mounted dead center of the panel in front of my legs. Normally it is stored in one of my saddle boxes until needed.

See the photograph.

I used to have my license plate attached to my scooter with velcro. Never had any problems whatsoever.

Great Cup Holder for my Scooter NEW
by: Dan

I was so inspired by your suggestions that I went out shopping for INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH VELCRO and a plastic cup holder. However, for a just a few more dollars, I found a RUBBERMAID CATCH-ALL (do a Search on this). I installed the Catch-All in the following easy steps.
1. Attach Velcro to my scooter
2. Attach Velcro to back of the Rubbermaid Catch-All.
3. Make a Loop via plastic wire-tie through the top of the Rubbermaid Catch-All.
4. Attach loop to my Motorcycle Helmet holder bracket. This will take the stress away form the Velcro and guarantee success of the project.

Note: I rode for about an hour today with no problems. It was easy to drink when I arrived at a Stop Sign because I purchased a "cheap" plastic bottle with included straw.

Velcro NEW
by: Ron Goldwyn

Regarding the use of velcro, I have some advice. Available on the market today are several types. By this I mean in holding power. One type is twice as strong as the normal glue on fuzzy tape. this type appears to be similar on both halves and interlock with each other.
Velcro brand tape gains strength by the square inch. Thus the longer the stronger the holding power.

Dear Kathi,
If you notice some of my photos of my manual windshield wiper that I added, I show on the side a remote control for the audio system on the left and a wrist watch on the right. Both are secured with strips of Velcro, but for safety's sake I also have a chain with a snap shackle. Yes the cans stay put and the load on the velcro decreases as the liquid is consumed.

Does the Velcro Hold?
by: Kathi

Neat idea, Ron. I tried afixing a clock to my scooter with velcro and it didn't hold for more than a trip or two. I think it was the vibration.

Have you actually carried a drink in yours? And it holds?

Great innovation... of course, if you buy a Buddy like me, you have a cup holder built in!

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
