Caribou Moto-Tote™. Expand your storage and carrying capacity! Introducing the new Caribou Moto-Tote-Bag, designed specifically for Vespa and Any scooter with a bag hook or under-seat storage. Ever try to keep one of those plastic grocery bags or the typical tote bag on the seat hook or floor board of your scooter? It just doesn’t work! We designed this bag to be stable and secure while riding...

Made to last from a durable and water resistant nylon pack cloth material, this will be the last tote bag you will ever buy. Small loops sewn into the top of the bag wrap over your seat hook. - A water bottle pouch at one end of the Moto-Tote-Bag bag keeps your favorite beverage handy.
- Shoulder straps for carrying around.

- Outside we stitched a reflective silver band to help nighttime visibility.

- Inside there is a convenient zippered mesh pocket for your cell phone, digital camera, check book, etc..

- The Caribou Moto-Tote-Bag also serves as a bag liner for under your seat, or it is easily stowed away for when you need it.

I ordered the tote and glove box liner for my GTS. And both for my friend's LX. Can't wait to get them.

PS - the customer service was excellent. Thanks Roger.

The the GT series glovebox liner is great. You can't fit a lot in there to begin with, but it's so nice to be able to cram it full if needed without it spilling out onto the floorboard when you open it. The velcro strips are strong, and don't take up any room. And the fabric doesn't get caught up with you close the door, either.

My Moto-Tote totally saved me the other day!

I stayed at work a lot longer than anticipated, and freaked a little when I realized I had worn my FF helmet with a tinted visor on it. Luckily, I remembered I had a 3/4 with a clear shield in my top case (I was anticipating giving someone a ride earlier in the week). But swapping the FF helmet into the top case left me absolutely no room for anything else. So I had to empty everything else I had in the case, and my pet carrier was already full. Fortunately one of the things I pulled out of my case was the Moto-Tote I had folded up on the bottom, so I was able to haul everything back home with it on the bag hook.

I like the Glove Box Liner...
Every time I open mine, stuff falls out.

How does the mesh attach?
Screw's at the top, or some sort of Strong Velcro that sticks.

Thanks,

Added a little something
Added a piece of 1/4" elastic to the top to make it like a cargo net. Now works like a champ! Holds everything in.

I've spoken to a couple of other GTS glove box liner customers and they report no problems with the original design, and they noted to install the Velcro strips at the sides well into the back of the sides of the glove box. We'll update the instructions with more detail on this and continue to monitor feedback. Thank you.
