Around the world on a Ruckus.

For those of you who never venture outside of Battle Scooters here's a link to another interesting ride report about a guy planning to ride around the world on a 50cc ruckus: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1050889

I am so glad you posted this thread.
It's true, I haven't ventured out of Battle Scooters lately.
I'm going to follow his adventure.

Great stuff but I'd die of boredom plonking along at 27mph.

I have a motorcycle endorsement for a reason, not least that I can ride 150cc.

Oh and why do RTW people feel obliged to carry spare wheels like sandbags? I'd rather have a teapot and jet boil. Or a lot of Trader Joe's milk chocolate. Or both. Do they not have scooter tires in Idaho?

Not when the stores are closed.

Probably not in Mongolia or elsewhere that he's going.
