: Very nice scooter! : That lid behind the seat...is that a boot compartment, Stephen? Can you actually stow things without opening the seat itself?

The rear half (for pillion) lifts to expose the full length of the boot. It is possible to open the boot whilst you are still seated (I have done, accidentally!)
