Honda Ruckus Gang: Perkins Drive – Harriman State Park, NY

August 7th, 2012 by Stu

Harriman State Park is a majestic place. They say you can see all the way to Manhattan from the top of Perkins Drive on a clear day. As you can imagine, the view and scenery draw in lots and lots of bikers. Sport bikes, Hogs…you name it. But this wild gang of Honda Ruki (ie – plural tense of Ruckus) certainly stood out from the rest. These gnarly little scooters, possibly part of the Ruckus Riders, were positively tricked out with lengthened frames, high performance exhaust systems, super wide rear tires, pumped up motors and other performance accessories.

Thanks for the pics Jersey Jay!

Honda CB750A Windjammer – Wooster Street, NYC

September 29th, 2010 by Ian

You know how the old saying goes…there is no replacement for displacement. Or at least that is what Honda must have been thinking when they brought the 4-cylinder, 120 MPH CB750 to the US and European markets in 1969 after having experienced tremendous success with their smaller line of bikes. The high speed sport bike was unprecedented not only for its straight-4 engine with an overhead camshaft, but for its adoption of front disc brakes, both of which were features previously unavailable on mainstream production motorcycles of the time and, in typical Japanese manufacturer fashion, were offered by Honda at a lower price point than the competition. This particular example is unique for its automatic, or Hondamatic, transmission (that’s the “A” in Honda CB750A), Honda’s first ever, and Windjammer aftermarket fairing. The whole thing is delightfully retro and that massive fairing really transforms the bike from a high speed sportster to an effortlessly fast highway cruiser along the lines of a modern day Gold Wing. It goes without saying that this bike looks positively amazing considering it’s more than 30 years old at this point.

Honda Ruckus – 10th Avenue, NYC

June 29th, 2009 by Ian

 

honda-ruckus1The rugged little Honda Ruckus looks kinda tough parked outside restaurant Morimoto on 10th Avenue. Much the same way you need an iron stomach to eat some of Chef Morimoto’s wilder TV dishes, the Ruckus comes to the table packing heat for the mean streets of New York.
