    JTM has some chrome planned... I "hear" Garlic Dog has a little something up his sleeve and I have gone down the tech path :evil

    First up, XM and GPS. You can't hear the motor, so you might as well have tunes. The GPS will allow me to record my sizzling top speed numbers to shut all the 'Busa owners the hell up.

    I didn't want any flapping ear phone cords to be causing any aerodynamic drag so I remote mounted the jack to a location under the seat.

    I heat gunned all the decals off except for the "Big Ruckus" ones. I have some new ones in mind :augie

    Disabled the interlock for the seat back...

    ...and the interlock for the seat cushion adjuster.

    The most important addition of all. Thanks Honey! :rabia

    :nah GS's are for poser sheep. Conformist losers who are to concerned with what oil to use or how long their final drive will last before it pukes and BMW tells them that "they all so that".

    Real men ride the Ruckii. [​IMG]

    It occurs to me that if you ever wear out a tire, you could use the one from your big gay toolbox.

    Fitz, for what he paid for that tool box, you could buy yourself 2.5 more John Deere's for your yard!

    Do me a favor and put some wheel spinners on it just so I can see what it looks like.

    What?? No Ricky Bars? How'bout an orange velour seatcover for the true Barcalounger look? Maybe a "gay toolbox" with drawers & spare wheel on the back?
