Vespas shine, they really do. Literally, and figuratively.
Storage is definitely one of the figuratively shiny aspects of Vespa love.
Which brings me to the point.
The Vespa GTS glovebox is nowhere near as big as it might seem from the outside.
A couple of bandanas. I keep these here because they take no room, and could be useful. You never know.
Gerber Recoil. I want one of the Leatherman models that accepts sockets, like a Leatherman Surge.
FourSevens Quark Pro. Two hundred plus lumens with variable output ranging from moonglow to brilliant sunshine, plus beacon and strobe functions. It runs on two AA batteries. Easy to carry and easy to find fresh batteries.
Sena SMH10 controller, the one from my old helmet. I got it for the day that I coax Susan onto the passenger seat for a ride-to-coffee. In the meantime it's my spare helmet communicator. When the battery dies on the one I'm using, I just pop off that controller and pop in the spare. I labeled them 'Sena 1' and 'Sena 2' so I can tell them apart. A fully charged Sena lasts about a week and a half of steady commuting use (at least two phone calls a day, plus the odd text, and streaming music).
manufacturer has more powerful models for sale. Here's the story. I carry a pair of binoculars in the glove box in each of our cars. They're rarely used. But when you're sightseeing and you want a closer look, nothing beats having a pair of binoculars handy. The Vespa glove box only has space for a monocular. It is very high quality. A gift from my dad. The store that sold it to him said that their biggest customers for this model were law enforcement. Apparently for stakeouts.
coffee jacket. It takes up literally no space. Like the monocular, it's hardly ever used. But there's that odd time when I want to take a cup of McDonalds coffee for a short ride. Then it's priceless.
