Wouldn't we like to see cute skewter chicks in this place - as opposed to the intimidating she-stallions we got stomping all over in here now?

The ADV scooters are easily a subset of the ADV crowd, IMHO, and in fact, I think it's something we could be proud of. After all, how many posers have the balls to ride these? None. (nor do they have the skills) I don't see why the marque or displacement should suddenly require that we log off and go elsewhere when it's the same gang, the same fun, the same ideals, the same warped humor. I'm the same person whether I'm on my GS or S9 and ride both just as hard, and from experience the scooters really have a LOT to offer die hard motorcyclists as far as fun goes.

That kicks ass!
One of the best stories I've ever read was Peter Egan's account of a long scooter tour ... man, it was years ago. But it was great.

YOU DID THE MAD BASTARD RALLY???? Jeebus, it was the CMG guys (their Ruckus review used to be in my sig) that warped my mind and shoved me into this mess.



C'mon, we need a ride report! Details, man! And pics!!!!

I soooooo wanted to do that one!

PS - nice aero tuck on the TGB. Did you get suckered into carrying extra oil in the trunk for the other guys? Or was that pizza?

Gosh, I don't know why everyone is creating a Ruckus over this.
