Amusing Discoveries

While the underseat storage is somewhat lacking on the Honda Lead 100, I did find out that I can stick a pide box into one of those green bags from Coles and attach it to the vindaloo hook in the footwell.

The handle length isn’t too long, so wild swinging is avoided in transit and the bag sits comfortably between my feet without becoming an annoyance.

The vindaloo hook is a good thing. It brings me delicious pide goodness.

    Being a basic yank, I haven’t the slightest effing idea what you just said.

    I didn’t realise it was that incomprehensible. Sorry about that.
    A pide is something like a Turkish pizza. They tend to be long, with the edges wrapped in over the toppings. They also don’t have anywhere near the amount of toppings as a western-style pizza. I favour the vegetarian version, especially the spinach. The box in question is a standard pizza box, but probably the smallest size you’d see, due to the pide being sliced up.
    Coles is one of the major grocery chains in Australia. The green bag is a large, reusable, polypropylene bag that you can probably fit two to three of the standard plastic grocery bags inside.
    There’s been a bit of a backlash about the throwaway nature of plastic grocery bag here, so heaps of shops are encouraging tougher, reusable plastic bags instead. It’s all a bit of a wank for the shops to avoid providing the biodegradable bags instead. Anyway, the green bags are a decent size and get used for just about everything here.
    As for the vindaloo hook… The term is more UK that Australia, I just really like it. The vindaloo part comes from the Indian dish becoming an almost generic term for takeaway food. The hook is a hook. Most scooters come with a hook below the seat or on the bodywork between the rider’s knees that it handy for hooking on those ubiquitous plastic bags they put your takeaway meal in.
    Hopefully, that clears things up.
    Chinese food, on the other hand, tends to come in individual containers that will fit nicely under the seat with a little careful rearranging.
