Hey everyone. I just purchased a solo backpacking tent that will fit underneath the cargo hold I made on my ruckus and I have a packlite sleeping bag. I'm thinking about heading out next month and doing a backcountry camping trip to the NC mountains. I've been scouting roadways but not able to find out the speed limits on the roads prior to the trip. Does anyone know how to do? Thanks,

They say statewide NC for scooters is 35mph or less. When I was there this year for CarolinaCon I had no problems rolling 55mph in front of and around all branches of law officers. You can use google earth to spot traffic signs on most any road you want.

My Ruckus only goes about 40mph so I'm concerned about the roads I would encounter that are only 2 lane and the speed limit is 55mph. I'm looking at taking 441 thru the state of Georgia. Any experience?

Haven't done a lot of Ruckin around this state yet. I'm in Savannah so if you pass near I can help with any maintenance you may need.

Found out that a couple of counties increased the speed limit on 441 to 65mph in Georgia, so I think I'm canceling the trip for safety reasons.
