We Needed A Pit Bike

San Diego BMW Motorcycles needed a pit bike. Walking around the pits is totally unacceptable. You don't seriously expect a dealer principal of the greatest BMW Motorcycle Dealership in the United States to WALK from the Sprinter Van to the starting grid? Certainly not. Gary Orr took a walk down the street to most desolate motorcycle showroom in town, Fun Bike Center, and picked up this little beauty for a song. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you the Honda Ruckus:

Too sweet right? We looked at our options and Ruckus was the most cost effective solution really. We tried to convince Joe that he could simply piggy-back Gary around the WSMC pits but no dice. I had recommended that we could get a pit unicorn but none of the staff could figure out what you feed a unicorn. We tried that Harley Road King that got traded in but other racers were raising concerns about the amount of oil it kept leaving along the pit walls. So that leaves us the proud new owners of this really angry scooter looking thing from Japan.

Gary and Jason testing out the Ruckus' pillion capabilities:

Soon we'll have an entire following of scooter awesomeness:

Sadly we did NOT opt to use a Segway. Fun Bike Center is not a Segway dealer and we're always happy to help out where we can.

Thanks for reading
