Ruckus Rescue

Patch hooked me up and I bought a Honda Ruckus. Due to my schedule and the bikes location, I was unable to pick it up for a few weeks so I put out a call to see who would be available.

One ADV'r stepped up to the plate. Then it went wrong. Horribly wrong.

I sent the cash and the pickup date was set. The pick up date came and went without a word from the "pivot" man.

Then this came....





And this...

Dood.

I'd do what they say. They sound serious.

I'd ask for proof of life, though.

What more proof do you need? It's a thread about kidnapping a scooter. On an Adventure motorcycle forum.

No one here has a life.

red stripe? fckin red stripe? the jamaican shit? i never tasted sucha crappy beer. these rucknappers are not right in the head.

if they had asked for a porter, stout, or ipa you could have maybe negotiated with them. i suspect their next package will be some bloody severed ruckparts.

It's a bad Ruckus and deserves to die.
