THIEVES CORNER

H
secure.

ave you ever left your motorcycle in a parking lot, garage, in front of a house, or in your own garage. only to find out your pride n joy is not where you left it. anyone who has ever been the victim of a stolen motorcycle knows, there is no where more empty then the spot your bike used to be. you cant believe that its not there so after the disorientation starts quickly followed by rage

, then the overwhelming urge to find the persons responsible and to make them wish they never put their their hands on your baby. At this point its all for nothing so you pick up your jaw take a deep breath and realize that you are never going to see your bike again. if you do it will not look anything like you last remember it. So next step is your insurance company (if you have full coverage) they probably

will not cover the full replacement cost of your prize possession, and all the various accessories and modifications. Not forgetting not riding till you get your motorcycle replaced, if you ever do. According to the national insurance crime bureau approximately 80,000 motorcycles are stolen each year in the united states. That's nearly eight motorcycles are stolen per minute, and a motorcycle can be stolen in a matter of seconds. We might not stop Bike theft but we might be able to help those out there to make there prize possession safer. We here at CyclePath Magazine will have this ongoing feature to educate all of us, we are going to hit this from all angles to keep your baby safer and more

Totaly out of his realm Khoi covinced The Dr. o perform the swap for his ruckus. not kowing much about the ruckus he was up for the challenge After a bit of research the Charles started to work his magic. Soon they produced the first Killer Scooter 150. A few more friends wanted their own Killer scooter. The Dr. rode a few to test them out and thought since he wanted to build a custom motorcycle for himself and you need a liscence. Why not get his own ruckus since his wife was against him getting a motorcycle. maybe he could talk her into the motorcycle down th road. well like everything he touched he put his own flare and style into his new found project. Not one to be average The Dr. went all out. First was the motor a 150 with a big bore kit, a custom Killer scooter swingarm and motormount they went through 20 them alone till the Dr. put his stamp on of approval on it.

TIME
Riding the ruckus was very impressive, I have rode and raced everything from dirt to drag racing, I didn't think to much of riding a scooter. but as soon as I Started The Ruckus I sensed fun. Throwing my leg over I was very excited for this test ride. I couldn't help smiling I was like a Little kid in a candy shop. As I took off I know That you should get the feel first, But that wasn't going to happen. Twisting the throttle was great it had some get up and go. So I just had to hit the NOS, You can definitely can feel the pull. I Really didn't want to take it back. This Ruckus was fun. The handling was quite responsive although you cant really lean to much since it is stretched and lowered so much. The brembo brakes really have good stopping power. When launching the clutch hooked up quite well. The Rucks even spun the tire. The pipe devil exhaust Like most custom headers it was a little loud but not over powering. All in all I had a great time this was fun. Go out and get your own Killer Scooter, I know I want one.
