I usually ride to work but do not have covered parking. I’m looking for sun and rain protection for the seat/handlebars.

I do have a full cover. However, it takes up 75% of the under seat storage. I’d like something more compact.

But I can’t find anything for scooters. Few motorcycle ones but at ~100”, it’d be too long for the scooter.

Any suggestions?

Is there such a thing for bicycles or electric scooters? They would be a more suitable length.

I am a cyclist and never seen anything like that.

I think I’ll try out that one I linked and see how it fits.

There's "sweat nets" to keep salty sweat off the bike when on the indoor trainer.

Is there really anything to worry about apart from the seat on the scooter?

I have that exact cover (I think mine is medium). Bought it for my motorcycles which are now sold. I keep it in my seat and use it at work. Doesn't fully fit my scooter but will cover the seat and handle bars/ instrument cluster. As you said- fits under the seat in a tiny bag. I like it. If you got the xtra large, I suspect it might cover the whole scooter.

Ok, perfect. That’s the feedback I was looking for. I just need it to cover the seat/handlebars. So I’ll get the medium.
