This is just a beginner Member's Ride Thread. If you know me, I've been on here for a little more than a year, and lurking for like three years. These are some of the two-wheelers I've owned, or still own:

Image

This was my first bike. I was in my junior year of highschool. I bought this off craigslist, started riding around the neighborhood and was learning. Then I got too cocky with the clutch and wheelied the shit out of it. The rear end plastic was messed up to I took off all the body work and made it into a street fighter. My brother bought it off me at some point and has tricked it out with powdercoated wheels, new bars, bar end mirrors and shit. I'll need to find pics of that.

Image

Then of course, my ruckus fever peaked and I bought this ugly little bastard from the dealer. It raped my pocket($2600!!!), but it was so much fun I couldn't stop smiling.

Here's a couple more of the ruck:

Image

That was of course the same pic, but with Hugh Laurie next to it. I stole that from someone on tr, so I apologize. It truly was my favorite profile pic on facebook.

Image

This is from when i thought getting a mohawk in my friend's drive way was the way to go.

Image

This is the hondamatic. Really cool bike, pretty rare, but nowhere near as much fun as a scooter.

Image

So the Ruckus was sold. I miss the shit out of it, but I didn't feel like getting new tires on the CB400 and going 40mph on the highway was just wrong. I was interested in a Kymco, so I jumped on this scooter when Jason (classiccityruckus) sent me the craigslist ad. The guy was kind enough to give me a badass deal, and drive it down to Athens which was awesome. The super 8 is a pretty nice scooter. Gy6 speed, taiwanese reliability, relatively good looks, and my fat ass had had it up to ( a non gps verified) 74mph on the highway, which is probably in the high 60s, but still pretty good for a scoot.

I hope to get another ruckus soon when a deal pops up. I'm also thinking about getting a moped, or maybe a sportbike. Haha. I'm just really into two-wheelers. I haven't even gotten my driver's license yet! I'll update this post once I get some more pics or custom shit going. Keep Ruckin! :banger:

nice collection! That super 8 is really nice, I considered one before I got the agility for my swap but they were alot more expensive at the dealer I use.

Oh and this pic made me laugh so hard! Reminds me of my friend and myself goofing off

Yeah, the wheels on the super 8 would look great on a swap, but I think the body work is nice enough for me to not think about it. I think your agility ruck is one of the best swaps on tr. If I ever find a dirt cheap used agility, I would totally build a ruckus frame up.

So, I must say this bike is a hell of a lot of fun. I took the seat off a few days ago to charge up the battery and its begging to be bobbed out, flat blacked, with some new bars. I was talking to a guy from a nearby scooter store and he said that it will probably run better if the carbs are synced or something. Anybody have any knowledge on this stuff? I don't know what to do with this bike right now. I might get the speedo and new tires and ride the hell out of it, or sell it and get a helix. There seem to be some alright deals on them now:

keep the cb400!
First thing:
Turn down bars
smaller seat
remove any and all unnecessary stuff (chrome rear bar, replace tail lamps, cut down the size of the fenders

Or, you could just sent it to me :wasted:

^^

I drove that 250cc home on the interstate for an hour!! :banger: :banger: :wasted:

Max speed per speedo was 85+mph :lol:

I think 1st tops at 10mph, 2nd at 20mph, etc..

Really awesome little bike and well worth the $850 :banger: :banger:

Congrats bro

PS. Let's get some shots of you on it!

Keep in mind, he didn't intend to sell it to mertech anytime soon :lol:

I think one would be hard pressed to find a cooler, early 90's Japanese cruiser in a 250cc. :morebeer:

now a BR for $850 would be :porn:

So, as you know I'm not the type to keep a scoot/ bike for too long but this one I am keeping. Finally found something that suits me well and goes fast. I had a zuma 50 for about 2 weeks. I'd post pics but its the basic black with graphics 08 zuma. It was nice and fast but I finally got a chance to jump on a maxi scoot, and I took it.

Image

I'll take some better pics soon, but basically this thing is HOOKED UP! Currently it has really lame flame decals and hemi decals which need to be removed but other than that I like the current look. The guy who owned it before me was serious( :lol: ) about scooting. He has it hooked up for gps, xm radio, has some leds under the body and a funny little light thing which he calls his flux capacitor( kind of like a plasma ball) and it already came hooked up with a 12 v outlet under the seat. Also, its a total old man scooter.I realized you can basically recline in the thing. Awesome. :banger: I'm contemplating blacking it out when I get some cash going.

Nice find, I rode one of the 500 models before I bought my TMAX. I was really impressed with the bike overall.
