I often get a raised eyebrow when i say I own a Norton Jubilee, it not being a popular bike in it's time, but after 40 years the good ones show that they are worth having. Compared to the Scrambler it's bloody loud!, I always get looks when I fly past at a steady 40 mph.

As for the Commando, its good to have dreams

DaveO,
I like your brackets as well, but I think I remember reading that you'd rather not do that project again. Instead I'll ask you about the Staintunes. Could you describe the volume of your pipes? Do you have the removable db killer in or not? They look nice and I've heard give a little hp bump. I may be ordering some soon.

I sort of explanied the way I made the pannier mounts for the motosport pannier frames a few times - I talked about it earlier in this thread didn't I

I am a staintune can fan and have ridden a bike with Triumph off road pipes. I have heard the Kiwi pipes too. I sounds smart arse but I think I made the right decision. They are awesome (poor word choice). Quiet noise at idle, start it up with a bit of juice and it emits a shotgun crack (I scared the bejeezuz out of old guy one day) the sound builds a la ducharleyessque and then for a while they sound like an offenhauser speedway engine ...I could go on but Ill spare yaz.

I like assertive sounding bikes, not necessarily loud ones so I keep the end caps in, I have elderly neighbours.

Eh? Grip warmer switch

So I have recieved my grip-warmer kit and now have to figure out where to place the on/off switch. Any ideas? I have seen a few pictures in this thread showing a box mounted in the middle the handle bars where a switch could be placed. This appeals to me because I could then add an accessory outlet and other electrics as needed. On the flip side I like the clean plain looks of the scrambler and do not want to clutter it too much.

I installed my switch on the left hand side panel on my Honda Shadow. Just along the back edge, so you wouldn't even know it's there, but was still easy to reach down and turn on/off with your left hand. Sorry I don't have any pics.

Well, I am thrifty so take that into account, but I'd go with the used one if it looks like it has been well taken care of. You will save $2500 cash and that will buy pretty much all the farkels you can think of with plenty of money still left over. As for the $1000 in accessories you'd theoretically miss out on, how many of those would you get if you actually had to pay for them?

Either way is not a bad deal though - I guess it all boils down to if you want new or not.

I think you could do a little bit better on an '07. I think they have some room to move there. I have heard some people are getting a starting price around $7100. I would work off of that to determine how much room the dealer has to wiggle.
