Aim for Oregon and you'll get free beer! Hwy 2 across northern US from Minnesota to Washington State is pretty cool, as is Hwy 12 from Mpls. to the PNW.

Thanks for the report folks, I appreciate the feedback

Thisle66, we are pretty close in leg length/height so it sounds like I should be OK with nothing more that a built up seat .

I joined the club today with an 08 Scrambler with Arrow exhaust.

I love those arrow pipes. The stock pipe is the only thing I really don't like about the scramblers. Beautiful bike

Nice looking Scram! Looks like the baffle fell out of the Arrow can though

I think I am really going to enjoy this bike. Been looking at them a long time and found a good deal on this one. Only 1800 miles with the arrow, tach, Dart windscreen.

Is there any market for stock exhaust? I have got the stock exhaust and it looks like it never has been used.

Me too, brand new in a box. Better to save it and put the stock pipes on if/when you sell because there's a very good market for the Arrow exhausts.

You're kidding right? Look over this thread - it's built on that theme!

Scramblers in the dirt? Of course!

Mikejohn - to add a bit - the Scrambler does remarkably well on dirt & gravel roads in stock form. Low center of gravity, good torque, easy riding position. Drawbacks are weight (as goes for any of the bigger adventure bikes) and limited suspension travel.

Add some knobbies, a bash plate, and some luggage, then look out! It will travel the dirt roads just fine. Go to the first page on this looooong thread and check out Danger Dave's initial test & ride on the Scram. Then look over some of the terrific photos & stories some of the guys have posted. Some have modified the heck out of their Scramblers, others ride them pretty close to stock. Mine is close to stock - just a few minor mods - but I take it on dirt roads and the like quite often.

On the Montana/Idaho border, camping and fly fishing:


Roaming Central & Eastern Washington, stock except for luggage and the little fly screen:


Running some dirt roads here in Washington with my son on his XT250:


Hanging with the 990 Adventure boys. Dang they spend a lot of time fooling with gadgets...








I enjoy riding the Scram on pavement, but it really puts a grin on my face when I turn off the pavement and head into the boonies, just by downshifting.

Regards, Guy
