hey folks. glad i found the forum for help with my 08 base tacoma. hopefully i won't be too much of a pest and remember to search before i ask stupid questions. i'm a member of totalruckus.com- a honda scooter forum, so i know the drill and etiquette.
first off, here's the War Tortoise. an 07 49cc honda ruckus with minor suspension and storage mods. this was my sole vehicle for a whole year, so i had to rig it for groceries, laundry, etc! it was originally 'urban camo' but i quickly painted it OD green.
having honda credit did wonders for my credit score. plus i had saved a ton of money on gas. mind you, the scooter is still my main work commute! 100mpg and 45mph is good enough for around town, only filling up one gallon every week or so.
so then i asked around about the most reliable worry free truck. Tacoma came up every time. so i heeded the advice. went out and bought the white shadow. white wasn't my first choice but i've gotten used to it. black and white are easy to accessorize. here she is on day two, before the debadging.
i felt a base model was a blank canvas to work with.
it's like the bed was made to carry the tortoise.
i've since added a bull/push bar and a toolbox. (which now means i need a bed extender to haul the scoot.) have in channel wind vents coming, and looking at lights.
more as it happens. thanks!
