=============================================================

the story how i got here on TR lol Posted in spring 2009

Well... I have been trolling around this forum for about a few months.. on and off.. i was looking for a deal on a ruckus and a metro.. the ruckus would be mine and the metro my wife's.. so my buddy Scooby-Dew was telling me about his when he got it and I always wanted to get one but never got a chance.. and I am always looking for a deal.. so we went to the dealer and found a 2007 metro and a 2009 ruckus.. i talked to the salesman and he gave me a ballpark figure of $4200+ for both of them.. that wasnt including their jacked up freight and of course taxes.. and i HATE when the salesman doesnt know shit.. like.. my wife knew more about the ruckus and metro then he did.. what a douchebag.. so my wife started looking around and found this guy selling a ruckus and a metro.. and i think i lucked out on a great deal. This guy was selling both the 2009 ruckus and metro.. he wanted a reasonable price for each.. so I asked him how much if i drove all the way there and paid for both CASH!!! He told me $3200.. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: so i said.. done deal.. drove 3hrs away to pick them up today.. They were brand new never ridden.. the ruck has like 1.2 miles and the metro has like 1.9 miles.. They actually won them in a contest... They picked them up from the Honda dealer in January.They were surprised that they even won.. but he decided that they were gonna sit in garage and him and his wife were not going to ride them anyways.. so I decided to help him out.. and I bought them.. woohoo!! deal of the century.. take that honda dealer :banger: and your freight and tax can sux it.. I am still in disbelief that I got such an awesome deal.. thank you sir.. they will be enjoyed for sure.. 8)


how my ruckus and my wife's metro looked like when i got them new in 2009
