and to all the scooter guys, i hope there more like the "I Am Legend" zombies.... you wont last very long[/QUOTE]

Dont underestimate the scooter. It was far scarier to ride the Ruckus than my Ducati. First of all, the Ruckus is like a cloak of invisibility. You think they don't see you on a motorcycle? Then again maybe that would be a good thing for evading zombies. As for the speed, I got it up into the 50's. Downhill with a tailwind. It takes nerves of steel to endure that 18mph up steeper hills. All the time thinking about the SUV (or zombie) that was going to run over me from behind. But it got about 100 miles per gallon, I could lift it up onto the back of my Xterra, it's stealth quiet, and can turn on a dime. All things that are handy in the zombie apocalypse. But really fast zombies? Yeah that might be a problem.
