What do you wish you'd gotten before your scooter arrived so you could install it right away?

I'm planng to get a PCX 150 (post 2013); would like to have some good/great accessories on hand. Also, what and what kind of safety gear. o_O

Would you mind adding your location please? It helps us answer your question much more precisely, since some accessories are easier to get in some locations than in others.

Helmet and gloves obviously, but a three season jacket that you won't mind being in when it is hot would be a great place to start.

A Givi dt323 tall windshield, adjustable shocks, adjustable brake levers, tailbox, extra lights front and back, and a good seat. For a 2013 model, that last one should be up there with the tall windshield. If you want to ride comfortably you will need a comfortable seat, and the 2013 model did not come with one.

Nothing. Get it, ride it and see what you need. If it's too much you bought the wrong bike.

And stay away from asking people you've never met what you "need"

Sit that bourbon on yer gas cap. A neoprene stretchy coverlet snuggin its body should keep things quietly unseen :D But Heck! 2yous don't need no cup holder! Here's a pub, there's a pub, everywhere's a pub, pub :lol:

Makes sense. Shopping kinda like work (to me, anywho) so pub is reward, all fetched on yer bike.
Aw yeah, That's a "Good Life" :P



Or perhaps you'd prefer this "Good Life" :D It's All Good to Me!

To the op, have the dealer put a Battery tender pigtail on the battery terminals. He'll know what that is and then you'll have yourself quick access to charging your phone, gps, warming your winter gear, using a portable air pump, or keeping your battery topped. Other uses as well, but not mentioned here. You'll be glad you did ;)
So tell us, when will the excitement begin, when will you pull the trigger? And...in what color? :P

The battery tender can be bought at your local Walmart for a good price: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Battery-Tend ... r/15779492
Buy and provide the dealer with the pigtail. Cheers!
