If you crack a smile when you crack the throttle, you are doing it right.

No, i was pointing out a Yami quirk. They tend to build projects like the VMax and TMax - both of which are machines powered way beyond their typical design intent.

Nobody thinks of a cruiser as having 200hp, or a scooter with more power than is needed to get out of its own way.

Listen, the original intent of this thread was to inform that there are scooter riders and meets out there for those who are looking for something different.

I enjoy Motohouston for the rides and the online banter.

I enjoy this Meetup of scooters becuase of the variety of events that they do. Rather than the same ol' same ol'

Honestly you don't have to have a scooter to join them, we have the occasional sportbike and cruisers, and they ride along regardless of the pace.

Their are different meets All scoot (50cc), 125CC and up, 200cc and up, and 250 cc depending on where they end up going.

Their was an All scoot to Austin last weekend.

I highly suggest checking it out. Lots of interesting things to do for the mature crowd.

We had a 600rr follow us during one of our Ruck-rides. I felt sorry for him. Here we are blasting away at full throttle down Allen Parkway....he might have been in second gear.

He had fun though. Isn't that what matters?

My ruckus was fun.
Only thing that killed me was the accelleration sucked off the line.
Especially when you had a car/truck behind you.
Once up to cruising speed(30-40mph), it was plenty good for getting around.
help you if you hit a steep hill.

Seems like electric scooters would have been a much better idea than elec. sportbikes.
You get 100% instant torque and you don't need a lot of range.
Electric Ruckus would be cool and you don't have to clean the carb every time it sits more than a week.
