Those custom rucks are neat but really pricey as far as parts go. It's like the motorscooter equivelant of hitting up the big box store auto section for all the plastic chrome badges, window trim, spinners and seat covers for your Geo. In the end, it is still a Geo albeit a shiny one.

I'm hunting for another 08+ Ruckus with low miles below $1500 if I can. There are a few out there but I'm not in a rush. Brainstorming long trip plans on a Ruckus

Interesting, I don't believe I've ever noticed a pond on FR85, and I've ridden it a time or two.

I guess I do tend to keep my eye on my line though.

You're ready now! Don't forget to watch out for state troopers clocking you at over 35mph.

Very cool. I think I need one.
What does the wheel on the wall fit?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a traffic attorney in Rockingham County / Harrisonburg?

Any thoughts are appreciated
Trial was yesterday. I work with a bunch of JMU alums with strong ties in the area. I had Aaron Graves (http://www.aarongraveslaw.com) represent me in court - I did not appear myself. He is a friend of a friend and did a great job.

Had the ticket reduced to Defective Speedometer - which cost $161 total for the fine and no points .
