I’ve been riding for years but only became “legal” a couple years ago. I ran old Hondas through the woods, power lines, etc. Then in 2010 a friend got me out riding 125cc scooters during a camping trip, setting me on a track to run legal,ie licensed, and then in 2011 I bought the Big Ruckus, and this year I bought the Iron, mainly because I didn’t care for running WOT on the highway with the Big Ruckus for my daily commute (WOT constantly twice a day for extrended periods of time isn’t good for a motor ) I’m also working on making my Iron an under 12 second ¼ mile bike along with a LD riding bike.
