The price for the Big Ruckus in Omaha has been lowered to $3300, even though the ad still lists it at $3500.

Doubtful, unless he wants to make a two day 1500 mile road trip. I think $3000 would get that Scooter, come on Firebrick
Edited to ad that Big Ruckus has been for sale since March 2nd and there have been 2 price drops since the original listing. That sort of "exotic" won't sell very well here in Harley Country.

Hey I'm still trying to talk myself into it. I have this nice 250 ninja here and don't know what the ruckus would do that the ninja doesn't! I still want to try it though.

Yet another price drop to $3000 today. Noticed in the pictures the one Aircraft Carrier has a sizeable scrape. Would $2800 buy it? I don't need a second Big Ruckus.

Looks like a drop at decent speed. You dont scrape a board like that in the driveway.

The Aircraft Carriers stick out pretty far and are mounted low enough to serve as crash bars. When they tip over the Aircraft carrier is going to hit first and take the brunt of the fall. That is a pretty stout assembly but the outer painted edge is unprotected so any scraping on them will show. There does not seem to be any discernable marks on the rear corner of the frame or the handlebars and the mirror looks ok on that side. Definitely needs close examination on that side. Unless the frame was tweaked, a little refinishing and a touch up with Arctic Silver would fix that. Easy way to check is to compare the gap between the frame and footboards on both sides.

That is probably a pretty good assumption , especially since the black plastic muffler guard looks brand new .
What I have found is the floor boards on the BR are rock solid and prevent a lot of the damages in a fall over .
How bad he went down is a guess from looking at the views offered in the pictures . A brand new floor board
runs about $70 from Honda . If the muffler and the rear trim is also gouged up you know he took quite a spill .
One thing about the Big Ruckus is , it can take a pretty good spill and by just replacing the damaged items they
are as good as new . Still you have to check them out , but I would guess it's fine .
