      Such a gorgeous bike! I'd love to build something like this someday. How much time/money did you put into it, if you don't mind my asking? Difficulty level? Welding required?

      I had a big Ruckus and my buddy had a regular ruckus in college so we could commute to campus easily. Those things are a blast to ride. I did some offroading, but I don't think I ever buried the tire like that. Lol.

      haha, thats the Connecticut River shoreline. Best way to keep the scoot up on sand, just do a burnout though we've done some pretty....outlandish things with them .

      Tried to find a Zoomer(Ruckus) over here in Korea but they are so damn expensive. I really liked the 50cc my dad bought for my mom to use at home. Thing was great for just taking around the block and down the street to work.

      Nice rides man, if I had the discipline to own a light ass metric it would be that one. But I know the giddy grip has a little too much go fast for my adrenalin addiction.... too bad don't live close enough to a track to convince myself its a good idea.

      Got tired of convincing myself I needed/wanted a liter bike and traded in the cbr for a 2012 triumph thruxton. Couldn't be happier. 80% of my riding is two up with the gf and this is so much better at handling that. And it is so much more fun to ride hard. Dragging my shoes through the corners.

      I seriously think a Thruxton will be my next choice once iv finished having fun in the supersport world. I'm glad to hear you're not disappointed with the switch!

      I would like to add a Thruxton to my garage as well. I just wish Triumph would make a Thruxton "R" with uprated suspension, better brakes a bit more power.

      I think it's fine the way it is from the factory. Half the fun of this bike is changing things around and seeing the improvements yourself. Better tires and some suspension bits from progressive are on my list of to do's in the spring. I'm pretty happy with the power right now. For what it is, it pulls very hard from 6000rpms to redline. Maybe a set of pipes, a power commander and a air box delete down the road, but not sure I want all the noise.

      Guy I ride with has a Thruxton setup with Ohlins on the rear end and I don't know what up front. He rips on the thing. Way faster than I have the balls to ride.

      Bike looks the balls too. I love the throttle bodies made up to look like carbs.
