Pimp my Ruckus
 
JTM has some chrome planned... I "hear" Garlic Dog has a little something up his sleeve and I have gone down the tech path :evil

First up, XM and GPS. You can't hear the motor, so you might as well have tunes. The GPS will allow me to record my sizzling top speed numbers to shut all the 'Busa owners the hell up.

I didn't want any flapping ear phone cords to be causing any aerodynamic drag so I remote mounted the jack to a location under the seat.

I heat gunned all the decals off except for the "Big Ruckus" ones. I have some new ones in mind :augie

Disabled the interlock for the seat back...

...and the interlock for the seat cushion adjuster.

The most important addition of all. Thanks Honey! :rabia

Fitz, for what he paid for that tool box, you could buy yourself 2.5 more John Deere's for your yard!
