Default I thought I had seen it all

Was stopped at a red light and a scooter went by in cross traffic
Who would have thought guys are out modding these things
Not the actual pic but looked a lot like these

there's this weird shop called BOWLS LA in little tokyo section of downtown LA that specializes in ruckus modding. I've seen crews of modded out ruckuses riding around making - pardon the pun, a ruckus, har har.

no offense to you, but when i see these guys, sorry, but i'm like... how is this any less dangerous/cheaper than a REAL motorcycle?
Plus I'm quite sure girls think a real motorcycle's cooler than a scooter...

It's like, a motorcycle for hipsters.

you should have tapped the back seat of the Kat and nodded yes just to see what happened

yup i been to there web page , i also seen them riding around when i was staying out their in passadena and i had my kat , most of the guys do put a 150 motor on them making them faster along with big bore and carbs and other mods , its not cheeper , but heck they sure look stylin i think .
the only less danger would be i can see is if i fall , im falling a foot and not 3 feet , and i dont have a 500lb bike to possibly hurt me more.
as for the girls lucky i have both to choose from i hate the ones that say pic them up in my car , im like u paying the gas ?

SERIOUSLY. DRIVING A CAR IS DAMN EXPENSIVE. I have two, a 4x4 and a turbo FWD volvo and unless it's raining or it's street sweeping, they stay home.

Most girls will ask to go for a ride, though.

I will say this, tho. Those ruckus guys have us beat on fuel economy. lol.

RE bowls LA: the guy who runs it, brandon, does a pretty good business as a video editor for things like scion.
