This thing will haul my 230 pounds no problem in the woods. The fatty tires are great, now it will not pull me up a 45 degree slope but everything else it does fine. I use it as a dual sport ride. I leave the house, and ride it to the National Forrest and enjoy the wild life.

When the gas prices hit nearly $2.00 per gallon, I realized that I could buy an economical scooter and pay for it with my gas savings. The Ruckus is the only scooter I've seen with styling that appeals to me--it doesn't say, "I wish I were a real motorcycle." I gave it five stars in every category because I have had no problems with it, but I have nothing with which to compare it, either. I'm getting between 90 and 95 mpg, which is the most satisfying aspect of it for me. Top speed on a level grade with no wind is about 37 or 38 mph. Going down hills I've hit about 42. I use it primarily for commuting to work and back, which is about 5 miles one way. While I wish it had more power for going up hills and a faster top speed, I must admit that the Ruckus is just plain fun to ride, and I love the fat (relatively speaking) tires. Getting accessories to boost performance, change the appearance, or make the space under the seat useable may be a bit tricky. Honda America sells no accessories for the Ruckus, while in Japan the Ruckus (a.k.a. the Zoomer) has a cult following with Zoomer clubs and meets. So, naturally, Honda Japan has a wide assortment of accessories and there are other Japanese companies that make Zoomer accessories. I did find a Web site dedicated to the Ruckus, however, which is at http://www.battlescooter.com. If you want a scooter for getting around town and don't have any need or desire to ride it on the highway or on roads with speed limits over 40 mph, then the Ruckus might be for you. I'd say it's particularly well suited for high school or college kids who want mobility but whose parents can't afford or think it inappropriate to buy their kid a car. It also makes a great commutermobile.
