Building my girl and I's fraternal twin 05 Ruckus and Metro this fall/winter. Couples who build scooters together, stay together!...or you end up ditching her to save more money for scooter parts.

Consider painting the wheels to bring it all together? Maybe hers Tiffany blue and your plum? Just need some Yoshi's and a Pod Filter, Maybe bars? Look'n awesome! :banger:

Dunno what I'm gonna do with wheels. But we have both decided were getting carbon Yoshis. Can't wait. Done for this yeareason. Thinking next year will be stretch and bars. Maybe intake just cuz I may have to ditch the airbox when stretching.

The pink was actually just little bottles of hot pink that we got on clearance at Hobby Lobby for 5$ a piece. Was pretty stoked about that! Was about a 20$ paint job. Shot from a gun. Thanks!

Lol. Only time will tell. All jokes aside I am pretty surprised at how into it she is. Past few days I keep catching her on ruckus sites planning what comes next. I love it!

Love my carbon yoshi. Sounds awesome, couldn't be more pleased.
If you're gonna stretch just make sure to decide if you're going fatty stretch or not before buying the exhaust.

Definately planning on doing the Mojo Fatty so building up the bank to do it all at once late next year hopefully. Already got into the how to prior to paint so all of the brackets are gone. Just drill the new hole and pop it on (in theory). Lol.

I just like specifically about the Yoshi t that the exhaust comes up at an angle so it would enable an easy quick detailing of wheels. Ease of access. Aside from that they are also bad ass. Duh.

aww c'mon! y'all are riding a SCOOTER and you're worried about masculinity? Move beyond! Move beyond!

If you are male, and your ride is purple, then purple is a "masculine" color. You could ride that hot pink/aqua Ruck and it would be "masculine."

It's all in your mind, man!
Move beyond! :banger:

Congrats on the trophies! :banger:

Btw, it's considered bad luck to put your helmets on the ground. :meh:
