Touring Ruckii (NPS50)

I've been doing some reading and wanted to catalog the touring ruckus threads I've found. ;)

I look forward to reading these.

As cool as it sounds to tour on a Ruckus, I could never do it. I had one and my back ached just riding around town. Maybe with a backrest and highway pegs. Naw, I'm too old.

Why is it that Rucks keep slipping into my dreams. I am a big BMR guy. Me on a Ruck would be like the clown at the circus on the little bike.

6'6" 235. Dare I go BMW ATGATT or do I need new riding gear?

Wife is looking to learn to ride, I like the looks of Rucks, I ran into Wan a long time ago and and a Ruck would be easy for wife to learn to ride.

Oh, and it would be fun!

There are reasons why people are hungry. Often those people are children. Often those people are elderly. Many are marginalized for one reason or another. As a social worker, I see this daily.

To the OP - thanks so much for bringing this to our attention.

I am amazed that people support looney projects like Ruckus to Mars or whatever to "raise awareness" or to "save the whales". The $$$ just don't seem to compute to me on either side. How much is outright fraud and how much is just great hopes to overcome something they might perceive as bad or unfair? At least Jimmy Carter got a hammer and started driving nails.

same Ht/WT here (at one point try 325lbs!) and I can't do a ruckus...same reason.

that's why I ride my stella..but these ruckus stories keep me motivated and pumped to 'get out there'.
