    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.

    If they sold those over here, I'd get one just for the WTF looks I'd get. Especially after going all Mad Max on it.

    I met a gang of moped riders coming the other way a few weeks ago. Full racing suits, knee sliders the works. All doing 30 mph.

    Funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

    Excellent bike, with a face only it's designer could love.

    Designed by Pierre Terblanche, and possibly the most... notable... of his designs.

    Miss him I do not.
