That's what makes it so fun. The ever present fear you are going to get run over as you manage 18 mph uphill.
I miss my Ruk. I think I'm going to buy another one just for for the sheer stupid underpowered fun of it.

Well, I loved my Elite CH80....but I think the 50 would find me pushing it up the hill.

Check this out. The guy I bought my Bonnie hack from (with only 72miles on it) had this in his garage out in California. I'm no Ruckus expert, but I believe this is a Big Ruckus...with a sidecar of course.

I'm willing to bet it is still there, and probably available for sale. He's thinning his collection of hacks.

For a second I thought the third guy had a stump instead of a hand.

If they sold those over here, I'd get one just for the WTF looks I'd get. Especially after going all Mad Max on it.
