Son Dawg,

Are you keeping your xchallenge?

I've got an xmoto and a scrambler, and have been thinking about getting something more touring friendly, but can't decide which other bike to let go of... It makes more sense to let the scrambler go (and have a big tourer and the little thumper, but I do know that I'd miss the scrambler).

I could also use a chrome headlight trim ring...


I'm still in the boat. Please sell me the right side drivers peg. I could use a right side stock mirror as well. Thanks for looking.

Yes - I am keeping my XChallenge as it suits my riding needs right now. I was also thinking that in time I might be in the market for a BMW 1150 GSA as a bigger tourer for on and off road. It would suit my needs well. I had a BMW 450 that was a blast to ride and a real rocket, but I barely put any miles on it and sold it last summer.

The XChallenge get my vote for my daily driver on and off road. I did an enduro with it last year and got 2nd place - 3rd overall!

The Scrambler is such a fantastic bike and if I could afford a few bikes and an FJ40 Land Cruiser, I would keep it.

It may not be the cheapest setup, but it's practical, versatile, and I think looks pretty good.

Another exhaust question

I know this has probably been beat to death but I searched and found no definitive answers on this specifically. I want to put on an arrow 2 to 1, problem is, the scram is the only bike my wife will ride on. Does anyone have experience with 2 up and arrow exhaust? Is the heat shielding as sufficient as the stock exhaust for passengers? Hotter/cooler? Just looking for some input before I plunk down the big bucks. The other option is TORs but I prefer the sound of the arrow, more sport v twin sound vs the harleyish sound of the TORs. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

I really like it. What type of plastic did you use for the mount and where did you get it? If you don't mind me asking.

The arrow doesn't hold as much heat as the stock pipe does. My wifes only complaint is that it is a little wider than stock. The heat shield does its job. It isn't any louder than stock unless you take the baffle out or modify it.

Yeah no problems from the Mrs for any extra heat from Arrow.
As stated a little wider but the factory kit comes with a little longer passenger peg (but we don't even use that) so you should be fine.

And yes with baffle out or modified the sound on the gas is belissimo :)

I don't mind at all, though I may not be the best person to talk about it. Fellow inmate (and Scrambler owner) Amanlikemike is the US Distributer for Kriega Luggage, and maintains a thread over in the Vendors section. A good guy and offers free shipping for the rest of us inmates.

This is that hard plastic mounting plate, and two of them come with the Overlander 60, one for each side of the bike. If you wanted to, you could buy just that plate, letting you mount your own soft luggage to it. Those clamps will mount to any 18mm round frame, though I think other sizes are available or are being developed. You'd have to ask Mike for sure.

Well done Extreme , how has this affected the handling of the bike , has lengthening the wheelbase & the offset front forks slowed down the steering a great deal ?
