Glad you got it home before the rain today. It was nice talking with you and your family. I hope your dad enjoys the new bike.

Any other takers?
I'll be at West Fest, but don't have enough time for the Montana 1000.

1st time I've seen an old CB tailight look OK before!

Well done that man!

That looks way better, and more retro (if one likes that), than the hideous stock rear light!

Don't get it near water. My recollection of Japanese chrome from that era is that it rusts if there a cloud in the sky.

Wow guys. That's a little rough. To each his/her own, right? Isn't that why you ride a Scrambler in the first place? Is it the fastest bike? No. Is Does it have cutting edge technology on its side? No. Well then why do you ride a Scrambler?

Either because you want to, or WHY NOT?

One of the best things about the Scram is that we all personalize them and no two are really the same. The tail light isn't my cup of tea, but that doesn't make it wrong.

Okay, proceed.
