Triumph should just buy that bike back from him and take it on the show circuit - what a nice piece of work!

I don't like the junk on the handlebars at all. Rest of it's sweet.

Moto-sport panniers makes a set for the Bonnie. The also make "do it yourself" hoops. With one fat and one thin bag you could easily pull it off. I'm surprised they have made a set already. But, then again they've yet to make a set for the R1200GS - go figure!

coupla questions

Has anyone fitted heated grips (that work) AND a 12v outlet to their Scrammy? Can the bike handle powering both?
Can anyone suggest some heated grips that work well on the Scrambler?

At the price Metal Mule are quoting, you could have a very nice set of ally boxes fabricated and customised to your own specs etc and still have change for a few other bits.

So I took the plunge and traded my Daytona 675 on a 07 Scrambler. One of the last with the bolt on tank badges, so I'm told. Somehow I think I will get a lot more use out of this bike without the threat of being arrested everytime I want to have some fun.

As soon as the weather clears we'll be exploring once again.

I have both on my Bonnie. I run Symtec heated grips, a zumo 550 GPS, and have the accessory outlet as well. The heaviest load I ran on the bike was with the grips on low, zumo active, with a cell phone and iPod charging off of the accessory outlet. It was fine as long as I was riding at highway speeds, but I could tell it would be a bad idea to putt around town like that.

Accessory outlet + heated grips should be fine as long as you're not chaining a bunch of things to the AO with the grips on high.

Thank you sir, that's what I needed to know. I'm leaning toward a Scrambler but these MN temps can require some heating accessories!

I run Gerbing glove liners, WarmNSafe jacket, and Gerbing socks back/forth to work and haven't had a problem yet. There's so little protection on this thing I need everything I've got. I use Dual-Star heated grips on my Tiger and those are probably what I'll get for this, too, just haven't had time. http://www.dual-star.com/

Disclaimer: my commute is all highway and I've never checked to see how badly I may be crushing the charging system.

Probably a pretty typical trade-in on them.

Just try not to fall asleep on it - and congrats!

You may already know this, but Dual Star heated grips are Symtec heated grips with a different name and (apparently) worse customer service. I ordered mine through California Sport Touring and got them very quickly.

5 days into my sth island ride, and loving every minute of it.
Just thought you guys would like to know.
Now its time for a few beers, and a bit of a chat with some of the European backpacker ladies that are hovering around the Scrambler.
Will throw a few pictures up on this thread when I get home in a week or two.
Great to be a guy.
