We have a few of those delivery scooters with the built in top box running around town. I thought they would be a cool utility scooter. Since that box is usually huge and built into the bike. Somebody could use one for an epic scooter tour. Thats gotta be 80l of storage.

I love scooters but I'd prefer more than 3" of suspension travel when the shit hits the fan!

When visiting Thailand back in 2009 I saw even more crazy stuff then this. Someone had a Honda Dream with bamboo on the back 3 meters tall by 2 meters wide plus 2 up on the bike and amazingly it was moving along just fine.

I guess the bamboo does not weigh anything just very bulky

Also in Thailand in the farm country it was not uncommon to see a Honda Dream with a half dozen people on it at the same time. Being of smaller stature and complete disregard for safety makes it possible I guess!

In an unrelated note it would be cool to get the Honda Dream here. In reality its all the bike you ever really need and they sell them in SE Asia for cheap cheap. Even for them they are semi disposable. They never bother with valves or anything else. They just change the oil when they really feel it needs it and when something major breaks they just buy a new one. Luckily being a Honda this is not all that often and some very old Honda Dreams running around this part of the world.

Only has to make one trip. When TSHTF, gas supplies are gonna be curtailed. A Hummer might get past obstacles better, but there will be no way to fuel it.

Travel light...and know that soon you'll have to ditch the scoot anyway. Mostly, know where you're going and that you're welcome there.

There's one thing wrong with your picture.

That Kow is going to ADVERTISE..."supplies"..."food"..."prepper"..."PLEASE WRECK ME AND TAKE MY BIKE AND STUFF!!" You might as well have a target on the back of your body armor...zombies gonna have guns, too.

Gas is going to be the big issue. In fact, it may be easier to ditch whatever you're riding and steal another, than to refuel. And it might be best, if you have a few weeks' supplies, to sit tight for a time.

It all depends; and in the end we'll all be choosing on unknown variables. But travel in the time when zombies walk, is going to be more than just having a tough machine. That's a part of it...a small part, frankly.
