Default Rain gear for scooter use

I am leaving town with some friends and there is suppose to be rain where we are going. I use a scooter. Anyone have ideas to protect the scooter (Smartscoot) from the water? I was thinking of a poncho.

I gave up trying to keep my wheelchair dry years ago, however, if you are transporting it, like on the back of your car, I found that a large gas grill cover works very well.

With my chair now, I put a gallon ziplock bag around the controller and don't worry about the rest.

Have an enjoyable trip!

Hey WaD, I think a poncho is a great idea, something that covers the handlebars. Baggies and a few rubber bands could easily protect the battery. Just remember to give yourself a little extra time to brake. Disc brakes even work great in the wet, but still. Have fun!

BTW, where are you going on this adventure?
