That's a bike that gets out, it's no garage queen, VERY NICE HenryII.

Tell me about those tires on road and off road. Thanks.

Regards, Paul

Anyone get booted from the forest for lack of one?
Any stock DOT approved exhaust meets the requirements if the bike registered and titled for the street. Aftermarket exhausts and OHV registers bikes will need a spark arrestor.

A couple of weeks ago, the girlfriend bought me a small messenger bag for my iPad. It looked pretty cool, and since it's made of olive drab canvas, I thought it'd match the Scram pretty well. So, today I went to Home Depot, bought some flat steel and some black paint, and fabbed together a mounting bracket for it using one of the mount points for my spare fuel can.


Works pretty well. Can attach or remove the bag without tools in only a few seconds, and impossible to come off during riding. It's not theft proof, but it's meant for communting to work, so the bag would be going inside with me.



Also, recently bought myself a GoPro Hero 2. Been trying a few different mounting points for it, but the headlamp bucket vibrates too much to use it there. So, I bought a few RAM mounts, and attached it just in front of the passenger peg. Took a short ride to Mount Vernon and back to test it out, and I like it. Even rode through a big puddle to see what a water crossing might look like. Once I get the video uploaded, I'll post a link here.

I kinda wonder how it'd look from the other side of the bike, where you can see the other pipes too......
