Question

Sorry in advance. I searched. I really did.

Someone, somewhere installed a Tach on the Scrambler, but modified the install so that it was sitting on the upper right side of the console, as opposed to the 6 o clock position. Anyone know where to find this post/site?

Thanks.

circusinthesky,
That sounds like the LSL tach kit from New Bonneville.

Here it the aftermarket tach install, though its on a bonnie. Same principle should apply.

Like the LSL, but on a budget.

Looks much better without the helmet!


BTW, What's the source of the bright light in the sky that causes those things called shadows?

Talking I am a leaf in the wind!

+1 Firefly, I too am a fan. Leave it to fox to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.


Good news: I completed motorcycle class today and got my certificate. Be afraid.

I went through a HD dealership and the class was great, no complaints. Got to ride a buell blast for the last two days. It was a neat little bike and I had fun on it. The instructors were tough but fair, and they didnt put any pressure on us to buy harleys. They did a great job and the riding portion made for a great weekend.

Now to get a Scrambler...muhuwhahaha!

Sun's out

Sun was out some and a few friends and I rode from Sacramento up to Volcano. I'm still smiloing. Here are a few photos. This is Daffodil Hill.

Alternatives to the Scrambler center stand (or, I'm a chintzy SOB)

The Scrambler's center stand is roughly $200.00 ! A center stand for an old Yamaha XS650 is $40.00. A center stand is hardly a engineering feat of any magnitude. I plan on asking my dealer to line up a center stand parade from other makes/models, but wanted to know if anyone has already gone down this road.

Thanks in advance.

Retrorider - I haven't ridden to Volcano or surrounding areas in about 20 years! Good roads & good memories. Thanks!

Scrambler handled everything well I'd assume?

Regards, Guy

I'm in love

Sunday - Removed AI junk, replaced stock shocks with YSS fully adjustable, various other tinkerings. 100 mile test ride.

Can't wipe the shit eating grin off my face. For anyone who is on the fence about the Scrambler, I say GO FOR IT. This bike (with some personalizing touches) is a fantastic sum of its parts. I covered some twisty back roads (handled like a champ), some superslab (galloped along gallantly), and some dirt roads (the Trailwings will have to go, but the new shocks performed great). Every minute, every mile, a pure joy. I couldn't sleep last night because I couldn't stop thinking about her.

Must be love.
