Why would you need a storage area? Surely you don't want to carry a registration on that stolen ride, do you?

Ok, ok. The "storage" area is big enough only for the bike's tool kit. That's the storage area I got a piece of laminate flooring on top of the kit so I could actually park on mushy surfaces when its hot but that's about it.

Another downer to the 636 is that when in riding position it is impossible to see the gauge cluster for most folks. This requires an immediate upgrade to a double bubble windshield. Check it out.

Last complaint: it is nearly impossible to see behind you with the mirrors. If you're stocky at all with a jacket on, it'll be tough. Check that one out too.

All that said, I love mine.

Re: Re: 636 storage area

A true squid doesn't need a tool kit. His bike will only ever require a spatula, to scrape him off the road.

A true squid doesn't need a gauge cluster. His bike only has one speed; Hyper.

A true squid doesn't need mirrors. He only needs to see the law-abiding a**eholes in front of him who are making it impossible for him to reach said Hyper speed. Besides, they get in the way when he's trying to do high chairs.












But, yeah, I'd love one too.
