Hey, welcome aboard MODE23.
First off, do you have any experience messing around with bikes,cars, e.t.c. ? second, how fast do you want your bike to go? a stock ruckus even a 2012 is pretty much limited to 65kph so it all depends on what you want to do with it.
Also try and use the search feature as much as possible, i have been lurking here for years mostly just reading and researching lol.
There was a few peeps around the last few years but as far as i can tell the scene is pretty quite around E-town lately. That being said feel free to ask questions if the search feature isn't producing many results, also they say starting a build thread documenting all the stuff you are doing to the bike is a good idea.
