Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
I’m always driving slow. Can’t receive a ticket or I can loose my job.
And if I loose my job, that means no money for more car parts!


About:
I am the only owner of the Type-R. I always get the same question
everywhere I go, is it real? And yes it is! There aren’t too many that can
say they have owned the same car for over a decade.

Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
Even though most think these rucks are as slow as other scooters on the
road,I can do 65+ mph. Just to break necks!

About:
The ruckus community is still small but everyone in it is always down to
help one another. It’s an awesome hobby to get into but very pricey to get
it looking like this. I know it’s just a scooter but I don’t regret getting
into this hobby.
