    I had one of those Scramblers for a coupla days and I thought it was great.
    I actually took the thing off road and it was surprisingly stable and easy to ride. I could own one..

    Hamo - so far it hasn't been to bad, i sat in some heavy traffic yesterday and it was warm, but not uncomfortable. We'll see mid summer tho.

    Hello Deus

    A man of fine taste I see :thumbup

    Once you remove the AI the pipes will cool down considerably.

    This one of the ones that's been hanging around Procycles all year, hopefully depreciating :deal till I could afford one?:cry
    And if you're THAT Deus, does this mean it'll appear in the showroom in a month or two all tarted up (not that there's anything wrong with that) for 20 grand?

    Hamo, standing on the pegs I havent noticed it that much, to be honest i think whilst moving it's not really gonna be a prob, perhaps at very slow speeds things will warm up, or while sitting at lights etc, but as dave said, remove the AI and things get cooler still.

    Shmerel - awesome, i can only suggest you go test ride one :deal

    The engines a pearler, the stock suspension needs work and it has a very pleasant feel (which is hard to describe in a sentance). I'm taking mine to the Koz rally and if you are a very good boy...

    Dave, what you think of the stock bash plate, is it good enough, any issues?

    I totally agree about the suspension, taking mine in to get a first service, fit new pipes, and get the suspension sorted this saturday.
