Not To Be
Ain't gonna happen...
So yeah, an update on this situation. One day I go down to the powersports store and find this little used Metropolitan scooter sitting there with only 714 miles on it and *BAM!!* that is it!
I've swapped over my lay-away to the Met and the Ruck will have to wait awhile. Difference in price? Try $1500.
Yep, Rucks have gone up in the price that's for sure.
The Met is a 2002, no rust or damage, gone over by the shop, runs like a charm. Just like my 2009 that I woefully sold in 2013.
"The Met is a Ruckus dressed up to go out" with some pluses that are good for around here: locking center stand, locking under seat compartment, rear rack capacity, front basket capacity (already bought and ready to install), and a windshield available for colder weather.
The Met only gets up to 40 mph, is carburated, and has a MUCH more comfortable seat than the Ruckus.
So, for now, on my limited budget, I am going for the Met.
Updates to follow....
Not my photo, but this is what it looks like. Will try to post an actual pic later..
