Default My new daily ride, street legal buggy.

53hp Suzuki engine, 5 speed transmission, AWD, water cooled, goes about 90MPH and the important part, gets right at 60MPG.

Just had to change out the stock off-road tires to some street tires and good to go. I love living in Georgia.

Stock photo for reference...

























And the street tires; Cooper Cobra Radial G/T's - 27" all four corners.









Now to just get those lame factory decals taken off, where is my goo-off?

You would be surprised, they don't cost that much.

Under $8,000 shipped to your door step. 90% assembled.

Half a car note, half a car, better than a motorcycle (IMO), and good gas mileage.

Well good news and bad news.

Its all put together and ready to go. Now it just needs an alignment. Shop is bringing in one of their retired guys to tackle it on Friday morning to make sure its done perfectly.

Hopefully my wife will be able to go by while I'm at work and snap some photos to send to me. :lol:

The anticipation of getting to play with a new toy is always the worst. I just hope they finish it for you on Friday or the weekend will seem to take forever.
