Ive been meaning to pop round to Dold Ind lately. (they'e just up the rd).
To talk about Scrambler throw over guards. Single side(left), in chrome, to suit the Ventura Rack system.
Would mean you could teether a single side bag, and not worry about making the bike wide as a bus.
A few simple welded on loops to their std chromed rack mounts, and adapt one of their saddle bags.
Bobs ya uncle etc.

Happy trails panniers

Perhaps "10" pm's for HT racks will be enough to get them started? Last check for some racks for a BMW F650 was about $250. I will take the lead if you all would like. PM me with a pledge for racks, myself included, and I will contact HT for further guidance.

Any other suggestions?

Question Scrambler Riding Gear

Well I finally bought my last piece of riding gear, I just need to take the class in april, I cant wait!

I was wondering, does the Scrambler have a short throw on the shifter and brake pedals? I bought Icon Field Armor boots, and they are great, but I noticed they are a bit stiff in the ankle area. They may be overkill but, I am going for maximum protection.

I also bought First Gear Velocity gloves and a Nolan N102 helmet. The jacket is a Fieldsheer textile with full CE padding. Silver and black everything. This may seem like an ecclectic mix of riding gear but I went with what felt right while providing good protection.

I plan on using the Scrambler to commute as well as light touring and adventure riding.

I figure I will end up buying all new riding gear as I progress through the years and find out what I like and dont like. I just wanted to get some input from the Scrambler pilots out there.

I think the throw on both is pretty short, but then again my other bike is a '73 BMW R75/5. Seriously, I don't think you wil have problems, and good on you for planning to ride safe!

I pulled the trigger!!! This is my first new motorcycle. I got it for my 40th bday present. What a great bike. All the positive reviews really helped convince me. I appreciate all the input.

Boze Man, mine was $7195 plus I got $1k to spend on goodies. Got TORS, centerstand, fly screen and AR elemination kit. I would have bought all of it except for the fly screen with my own $. Dealer has been in business 45yrs.

Talking Where to stick it...

I think you should send those pictures to all the pansy journalists that say the Scrambler 'isnt for off road', with a note that says "clue #1".
