Introduction

Just wanted to introduce myself.

I'll let my profile speak for itself.

You may have to copy and paste

the following links if it doesn't work

as a link or just add the usual http with

colon and 2 forward slashes (as all HTML

starts with)

Don't know if the links to a couple

of photos will work but a photo of me

on my Big Ruckus (Honda PS-250) can

be seen at:

Here's one of my Big Ruckus taken at night

with a cell phone and NO FLASH (it was a Nokia

Phone with Night Setting on the camera (2mp):

Small engines have always interested me.

Can't see wasting money of fuel; they use

the profits against our interests everytime.

Have a Moped-Army unit accross the street from me

and this Halloween Weekend they had a bunch of people

from all over (one from Michigan and a few New Yorkers.

I've ridden 40 years and my Honda Big Ruckus

is my ALL TIME favorite.

Done a lot of mods to it including a dual battery

charging system that allows me to use a lot of

lighting systems including three HID lights cornering

light and many extra LED marking lights along with

a sound system including a sub-woofer and two

front speakers. It's made the newspaper locally

and is all over the internet via www.totalruckus.com

which is where I hang out on the internet.

I worked 40 years as a Plant Engineer and Electrician.

That gave me the background to do my mods and

most of my maintenance.

Hope to hear from you and willing to give a hand if

needed.

Katman, Pittsburgh PA USA

Re: Introduction

Wow Katman that's what I call a scooter!

Re: Introduction

got anything with pedals?

Re: Introduction

those ruckuses are pretty popular on my campus, but I personally think they look like poop. You're not going off roading with them, why do you need to look like it?

Re: Introduction

If you drove on the streets of Pittsburgh you'd

appreciate the "RELATIVE" ruggedness of the

Big Ruckus. They are ideal urban machines that

also work fine on the interstates. I've driven

to Cinncinnatti, Harrisburgh Pa, and Clarksburg

with two on board and was able to run at 70-80 mph

and got an average of 65-70 mpg if I kept under

60 mph.

I'm very satisfied with the BIG RUCKUS. Best I've

owned in 40 years of riding. Honda screwed up by

not advertising it and dropping it after only two years

on the market here.

If I wanted to ride off road I'd buy a KTM or KLR.

As it is; I don't ride off road so I'm on the BIG RUCKUS.

Re: Introduction

A Panasonic and Cannondale.

Very tall frames.

Only problem with mopeds that I encounter is they don't

offer a tall frame for the INCURABLY tall. I have 36" inseam

and I can't find a moped that fits these scrawny legs.

Would have to build a custom moped which would not be

cost effective. I do wish someone made one, though.

I'd buy it in a second. I don't need a large engine; just

a tall frame!

Anyone that might have info on such a BEAST please let

me know.

Re: Introduction

It's been a riot. Won a few prizes at rallies with it.

For example the coveted YINZER award

and the Shit Box Award (for having the MOST shit

on a scooter) in the prior year. I do it for shitz and

giggles, for sure.

The scooter made the local newspaper for the music

I play on it. Was a long interview editted down to

a page.

I'm modifying another Big Ruckus now. It's going

to be a military theme with all the lighting from military

trucks. Have most of the equipment including a new

wiring harness and all the blackout lights, etc. from

Army vehicles. Gotta love feeBay where the weird shop

BUTT pay their over priced fees for it.

Re: Introduction

If you should ever come across a Derbi or Motobecane, they would be worth a try. MY derbi Variant is only an inch or so shorter than my cb350.

Re: Introduction

Edward Richardson /

No need to get rude guys. Just direct the Ruckus to the Scooter section of the Moped Riders Association or the Scooter BBS.

Re: Introduction

he is looking for a moped, saying he rides a ruckus now. damn you people are hard headed. its a wonder how this board ever gets any new people

Re: Introduction

Look at the photo section and find one that looks like it would fit your needs.

I don't need to know about your scooter because frankly, this isn't a scooter forum, and most people here don't care for scooters. If they liked scooters, they would be on a scooter forum.

Re: Introduction

RIP KATMAN. It was always a pleasure messaging back and forth. Take care up there old pal.
