Ive seen a you tube review video for a red 150cc china scoot, had a clip similar to the folding one
I thought that was a nice clip too

Even though ive only used mine 1 time I thought about possibly wrapping a small rubber band over the hook to make a fat end, and maybe help stick the bag down from possibly bouncing off

the ones that rc and b6 show looks nicer too as its alot taller

I'll wait a bit ...
And then see if I can get one of these from the dealership ... or some place else.

This is the first one that I've seen like this.
It may have it's limitations ... maybe a larger hook and the option of carrying a drink bottle will make me just as happy (but that wouldn't fold away).

I still appreciate the small improvements that I've seen.

but you notice how its a large square plate, recessed into the wall

even if you bought one, how will you mount it, just on the surface because it will twist over that way
or cut into your wall to recess it in

at 5:40 shows the hook on a china scooter

NIceeee! I see some of my pics on there. The black one in front of the graffiti wall is mine, so is the group of scoots shot from the rear with the bridge overhead.

What camera was it that you had? It took very good pictures. The photographers were good too!

Everything in that facebook PEN collection was taken with the Olympus Pen E-PM1. They were given out to us by Olympus for the event. Cool thing is, we get to keep them.

I am a NIkon man myself but this looks like a pretty good point and shoot. The photos you took and that are on the Yamaha Facebook page look great. I especially like that it has interchangeable lenses like an SLR.

Some good pictures in that collection (not that I got to the end!).

I'd worry about that GPS being a distraction and also about it getting stolen, but it is nice that it fits so well.

The other thing that struck me is how weird (note that I'm not saying gay, just weird) it looks when people ride in the normal seat position! :) You're so upright! I sit on the passenger area, and even then it's on the small side. The bike seems to be designed for someone 5'6" tall.

The best thing about that camera is that it has a flash shoe. That's the major thing that separates good indoor pictures from someone's holiday snaps: bounced flash vs. harsh crap.

Im very impressed with the camera, i took the canon back that i had origionally bought for the event. I was comparing the 2, viewing both sets of pics on my 55" tv, the olympus really shined when blown up that big.
