Just that - Is there such a thing as a locking curry hook?

I was asked this question by Mrs jimc - it was to do with helmet security, but she realised a moment ago that the helmet buckle rules out the curry hook, even if it was locking.

So now I'll make something to enable it to get locked onto one of the under-seat pins.

double d or clip?

here's a cute solution for the clip style top tip: helmet holder (Post 1762798) and top tip: helmet holder (Post 1764102)

I always use a short cable with loops at the ends. Goes around the chin bar and then over one of the pins under the seat.
If you can wait till September, I'll bring one to the rally for Ivana.

That dealer also has a helmet lock:

It's like cultural bastardization and cultural misappropriation at the same time. It makes you wonder, are these the people who ask for cappuccino in the afternoon, don't pronounce the k sound in bruschetta, and put pineapple on their pizza? If we go back 3-4 generations were their ancestors the ones wearing bedsheets and burning crosses? How deep and far back does this mindset of racial projection go?

And I know there's the historical part of it, "in the years of yonder on the streets of London..." but... given what the UK was up to for the century or two leading up to that era, I'd say that only cements the argument of cultural bastardization and cultural misappropriation.

Now, personally, I don't really care what people call the components of their bikes. I won't think you're a bad person if you call that it that, or that you're committing some kind of crime against Vespe. I'll even be 99% confident that your grandparents probably weren't KKK members...


...I'm just saying you're probably leaving the door open for people younger than you to keep that 1% of doubt
Dude, I love you brother but can of worms. I got an RAF sticker on mine and I'm pretty far from ethnically Anglo. We can all dabble stylistically a little bit and it's ok!

Let me stop you right there, as you seem to have gone off the rails. The "curry hook" moniker is, as I understand it, a Londonism. It's not an appropriation. It's slang that you're just not privy to. It has nothing to do with Italy, and it was never meant to.

We've been calling it a curry hook on this forum for almost 20 years. Your protests are not going to change that.

I'm just saying, from the perspective of italian person on italian bike, it looks very silly.

Like that video on Instagram, of the Irish guy, wondering why Americans are trying to air fry their tea. It's on the same vibe.

He's not trying to make anyone stop air frying their tea, he's just like, Facepalm emoticon

But by all means, silly makes the world less vanilla, so call it whatever you'd like. Clearly people are going to interpret things however they want anyway, so you may as well enjoy yourself.

Precisely. Curry is a popular takeaway food and scooters a popular mode of transportation. The hook is a good place to hang the bag. Why go out of your way to be offended?


I was also looking for a locking hook. I don't know why that isn't a common modification.

Just a guess here, but most things being secured by the lasagna hook (grocery bags, fabric packs, etc.) do not offer much in the way of securing their content, and adding a locking feature would just create a false sense of added protection.

Zelioni doesn't want strongly worded emails and negative reviews claiming their $250 lockable hook failed to prevent a plastic market bag from being swiped and the owner is now without their milk, cheese, and bread.

It's true. My Ralph's or Vons bags don't stand a chance. They barely make it from the store to the car without breaking. And we pay $0.10 per bag for the privilege.

I can make you a custom zippered top locking grocery sack to hold your goodies but if you decided to run in to grab a brew, a raccoon would be able to chew through it and take your lasagna. 🤣 Now you got me thinking about making some cool purpose built grocery bags for the curry hook. I'll send you the first one to try.😉

I can do leather but I'll figure out the prototype with some sunbrella fabric first. You only get one shot with the leather so I need a perfect pattern first..

Hey jimc, how about these dealy-bobs?
You thread the end with the hole through your d-rings, and then it hooks over one of the under seat helmet pegs.

Not when you have access to as much leather as I do.

Sunbrella material would make for a nice bag as well. Easier to clean up any marinara that might leak from your takeout lasagna.

Thanks for the thought, but this helmet is the 'seat belt buckle' type. I'm working on a solution.

Nobody likes a skinned up Birkin strap! I vote for a soft drawstring pouch in addition to luxurious padding inside the curry bag. As long as nobody knows what's inside, should be somewhat safe?

Not really. It's an observation. Like I went to a viet place a while back, made the mistake of calling something "noodles", seemed fine and fair to me. I mean, it did look like noodles, right?

The girl I was with pointed my ignorance out to me. I learned something new. I agreed with her. I moved on. Like me, she was just letting people know how my statements might make others see me in a negative light. The rest was up to me. Likewise, I'm just letting others know how their statements might make others see them, and the rest is up to them. It's your components, call em whatever you want. It has nothing to do with me.

You really have zero credibility here given every post you make is making fun of the Irish. That's just an observation.
lol I can't recall ever making fun of the Irish. Heck, I live with a nice irish girl, and in a few more hours, we'll all be irish

PS: I acknowledge receipt of your observation. Please let me know if I need to take it as friction, otherwise, I will not lol
