I have the regular luggage classic rack and there are sometimes I wish I had the coffee one you now have. And I think you can strap a gas can just fine to the coffee holder rack.
I have the corazzo bag hook coffee holder but sometimes I want to buy coffee for two. Alas.
Looks great on your Scoot !!

Gracias, mi hermana. I had the luck to see it on #Harbinger so that gave me the idea. Could not find a USA or Canada supplier so had to order direct to the UK. Quality product and ah-mazing customer service.

What no picture of the sippy cup that came with it?

Nice rack. I think it's one of the best accessories made for scooters.

Great choice JP!

Get some ROK Pack Straps and a 5 litre fuel jug. Great for long distance trips and minimizing fuel stops with confidence.

I love the blacked out look and the texture of the seat.

Do you find you kick the rack when getting on?

Nah but it can be a bit of a pain getting off if you have a large coffee in it. Sometimes I'll out that on the ground first.

Here's my GTV, same rack. I also got the coffee cup with mine when I bought it right when the re-opened.

Here is mine, opted for the chrome one, but black looks nice! I am biased because I am in love with Harbinger’s GTV, but the grey one is also such a nice one! I have not yet used it, i never buy coffee to go but just to try it out I might go! lol

Very cool setup (and lovely ride you've got there). Might need to consider that myself, since I (a tea freak) could clearly find use for both the rack and cup.

those racks look great, my current coffee holder is a RAM mount but in the recent past it has fallen apart twice while I was riding, I was lucky enough both times to catch the coffee cup between my feet and pull over to save it but it does concern me that it may be getting too old, so this rack looks great. A question is how is it attached, do you drill or does it go into screws holding that plate and has the cup ever fallen out when you hit a bump? Also I see there is a flat one and a tubular one, any thought on which is better, I do like the look of the flat one a bit better though.

thanks

Attaching it couldn't be easier and takes nothing but a screw driver and less than 5 minutes later you're good to go. That includes the unboxing .

Here you go. This pic should give you an idea of how it screws on. Also proof it holds a coffee without spilling and this is with going over a few bumps.

Did yours come with washers? Mine was just the screws? Are the washer part of the original battery cover and I should have taken them out?

Flat chrome holding a flat white!

Mine came with just the screws, no washers. Perhaps Harbinger added his own washers as I don't think the original cover come with them either.

I got mine a while ago so can't remember if it came with additional mounting hardware. Longer screws would make sense though as the rack obviously adds some depth. I'll see if I can dig up a pic of my bike from before the rack. Or someone here might know off the top of their head.

You can order the coffee online, really good. But I gotta be honest, that the (pardon the pun) coffee wars are still brewing. Here in Toronto, Mickey D's won out a couple years back and they are all scrambling to "out-café" each other.

Not a coffee drinker, but their doughnuts. Mmm French Cruller.
Now we do have Krispy Kreme which makes the best glazed donuts anywhere on the planet.

You can't go a few blocks around here without seeing a Timmies and the same goes for Starbucks. There is something about a Horton's double double that is like crack to me. Funny thing is except for Horton's I drink my coffee black.

KK has had a bit of a resurgence here in Toronto with KK cafés opening up. They even sell them in our Costco’s now. That stuff is kryptonite. 🤣

If you happen to find yourself in Portland, be sure and drop in at Voodoo Donuts. It sure has its following.

Believe it or not, we have an upscale donut place in Toronto called (wait for it) "Glory Hole Donuts". Yes, that is their name, I did not make this up. We had some at a celebration last summer. They were amazingly tasty. And NOOOO, get your moods out of the gutters.

Yes you can find KK donuts at some stores but nothing is like getting them freshly fried, it just melts in your mouth. We have a number of these very foodie hi end donut places and while many are very good, to me there is still nothing like a freshly cooked KK.

I have the luggage rack though it has never been used for anything save to be a nuisance when checking the battery. Looks cool though so that's something I guess.

Regarding onboard beverages -- I have a stainless steel water bottle hanging from the purse hook and that's it. I prefer consuming my hot beverages seated in a cafe along with some sweet biscuit or pastry. Seems pretty distracting to drink coffee and ride. Though I suppose I'm just intoxicated by the ride and want zero distractions -- music, digital displays, or other riders...

Geez, I'm turning into a curmudgeon.

I don't drink coffee when driving but I like to bring the coffee to work as I hate the coffee at work and we make excellent coffee at home, so I just needed something to keep the coffee mug safe till I get to work. I was using the RAM mount cup holder but it is getting old and has fallen apart twice in the last month, I luckily was able to capture the cup between my feet but a little scary while riding. Agree with you drinking coffee on the Vespa likely not a great idea. And I also agree the classic rack does look quite cool. On occasions I have carried a lot of stuff on my Vespa using the top box, pet carrier, front rack and purse holder, and this will give me on more place to attach.

The Vespa is definitely a mule. You can carry a ton of stuff on it if you aren't concerned with appearances. (And safety probably at times). I've carried bags of sand, concrete, dog food, big boxes, watermelons, and all sorts of things. But my most romantic haul was the Christmas tree...
