    Hi we have a Burstner Elegance and looking for a small scooter or bike that will fit into the garage. Been looking around but no joy.

    Anything considered

    Regards

    What size is door to the garage as that normally is the tight spot. Also what is the maximum weight you can put in the garage without overloading the chassis and the rear axle?

    We use a Suzuki Address scooter in our Hymer B678.

    Hi max garage weight is 250kg. With a max door height of 43 inches. I've had a Yamaha YBR 125 in there but had to remove mirrors and drop Speedo out if the way but a ball ache every time. How high is your scooter??

    We only have to take the mirrors off, as you will with most scooters in most garages. Only takes a minute or two. Garage door opening is 1140mm high, which is about 45" in old money. We get it in with about a couple of inches to spare at the front, so it may be tight with your garage height. The address weighs about 100kg.

    Yes that's the problem with only having a 43in opening. Thanks the address would've been ideal.

    I think the MSX will be fine, I'll go and have a look at one.
    Thanks Richard

    If you are struggling for height, a strap from the bars , to the front wheel spindle to compress the suspension can help , especially just if you are aperture limited
