Also the motorcycle permit test is pretty mindless.
So you won't have trouble getting that

If it has to be a scooter, get a Yamaha Zuma. You can actually mod those.

Hey, you said it, not me.

But he hasn't changed. Trying to take on a ruckus motor swap because he wants to save money on gas, all of this while driving a 323i manual, which should be economical as fucck.

Maintain your car. Get spark plugs, fuel filter. Clean things out. A 323 should be cheap as hell to drive.

Grow a pair and start on a 1000. You'll grow into it. Also, get a helmet Mohawk so people can instantly tell you're a badass.

A ruckus is no more than a stripped down moped.
You can't drive it on the interstate. You can't ride with a girl on back. You'll look retarded.
I realistically think a 250 would suit his desires. It'll be fun as anything and be getting 70+ mpg.
A ruckus engine swap is like suping up a vacuum. It's just fvcking stupid and everyone will stop being your friend if they see you wasting your time on it.

Shiva is getting one before I am. She wants an HD 883. I won't get something for a while. Still need to make a move to M3 (E90 or E46) and get a diesel wagon of some kind.

For that price, you can get a similar age Kawasaki Ninja 250, a Buell Blast, older Suzuki GS bikes, maybe even a Suzuki SV650.

And you want to take a course and get licensed. Trust me.

I feel bad for people who get stuck in traffic running 45 mph maxing out their scooter while traffic races around them at 60+ mph.
I live in a small town area where this would be mainly for driving to work and back No traffic at all

Thanks for those options I"ll check them out

I was wondering how much motor swaps are because I thought I needed one to drive it on the street.

I didn't think it would make the scooter have better mpg lmao

The new ruckus gets 114 mpg. my 323i gets about 25. Which one is more economical? Hmmmmmmmm

And which one cost's an arm and a leg to maintain when something breaks? hmm

I'd rather drive a ruckus than a 250, they are ugly in every single way.
Even the newer 250 ninjas are ugly.

You be the judge.
