Avoid the Ruckus mod forums or your hobby is screwed. All the money will go into her scooter!

Grats!

Took delivery tonight, put about 40 miles on it. It is slow but it is still a ton of fun!

She already joined totalruckus.com and made a screen name haha. I guess it's to late. She is loving it, she put over 100 miles on it since we picked it up yesterday.

Nice little ride down to Stephens State Forest with the wife on Saturday. I took a nap on a picnic table in the campground while she shoot her head and took pictures. Looking at doing the same trip alone in a couple of weeks and camping for a couple of nights and riding out from there if anyone is interested.

So who are our resident traffic law/DMV law experts?

I need some help trying not to lose my license.
First ticket in over 7 years and now I am worried about losing my job because of not being able to drive out of state...

I am not an expert but I know that lots of people have had good luck showing up to court date dressed professionally, explained their story, and gotten off more often than not. A lot of times the officer won't even show up.

How can one ticket cause you to lose your license? Excessive speed?

You could say that...
Clear ahead and behind as far as you can see means nothing when Johnny Law is sitting stationary behind a parked ammonia tank in the middle of nowhere.

Saw a white Triumph with top case on 50th street near I-235 in West Des Moines today around 1pm. Anyone know who that is or whether the rider is an inmate? Nice bike.

I wonder if it belongs to Fallacy. He has a Tiger XC if I be correct.
