    as was mentioned before, those "scooters" are honda rukus's. afaik, trucks are not allowed on the dragon, but they go there anyway, as can be seen. bikers have died because of it - there is simply no way the trucks are able to stay in their lane...

    Yeah, people love messing with a Ruckus. Here's a video of a few in action, including a cute chick.

    A Ruckus,huh? Must be under a rock here, never seen one.

    I'll admit it, I'm here for the photos; kinda tough to wade through all the chest thumping posts at times.


    Trucks: couldn't imagine it was a good route; safety issues aside, what a complete hassle to wrestle the rig on that road.

    I'd love to have a Big Ruckus....too bad they stopped making them. The Ruckus isn't enough "umph" for me.

    That's what makes it so fun. The ever present fear you are going to get run over as you manage 18 mph uphill.
    I miss my Ruk. I think I'm going to buy another one just for for the sheer stupid underpowered fun of it.

    Well, I loved my Elite CH80....but I think the 50 would find me pushing it up the hill.

    Check this out. The guy I bought my Bonnie hack from (with only 72miles on it) had this in his garage out in California. I'm no Ruckus expert, but I believe this is a Big Ruckus...with a sidecar of course. :D

    I'm willing to bet it is still there, and probably available for sale. He's thinning his collection of hacks.

    For a second I thought the third guy had a stump instead of a hand.
