Question big ruckus ?

What is the general opinion of the big ruckus ?

I love the look and think it would be quite useful.

I have a short ride to work and could commute on it. No freeway.

Also could give grandkids rides in the yard, etc.

what do you think ?

Probably SWMBO's next scoot if she doesn't get a larger Vespa.

I'll let the Buckus owners here chime in, but I'd snag one in a heartbeat for errands, goofing off, and as a photo platform when I have to get on/off the bike a lot to shoot (photographers have to play leapfrog a lot and ease of getting on/off and getting to gear is a big plus).

It's all I'd ever need as a commuter/urban assault vehicle.

I think having a lot of exposed frame and that big area behind the driver to lash stuff with the seatback up is a great plus.

JohnTM's done a LOT to his...give him a holler.

I LOVE mine. Currently my only concern is now that it is a collectors item (looks like 2006 is its last year)

Beyond that, it is great on the roads, be it city or country. Just try and stay clear of the freeway....

My wife has a Burgman 400. Benefits of the burgman is that it has a windshield and storage. Beyond that I love the BR much more. Better handling, comfort, and not much of a difference in power. My dad actually drove my BR around the block once and went out and bought one.

Heres some sites with more info:
