    Orpheus' drawing is reasonably correct except that the rear frame loops are actually a hook that only has a bolt at one end. That way there are four bolts that attach to the skid plate itself, two at the front top, two at the rear bottom.

    By the way.....i don't mind the Trailwings. Does that mean I'm kicked off here??

    I was mucking around on the weekend with some pannier racks for my SR500 on the left side of the Scrambler

    They are only 19 EUR and they shipped to Australia within 7 days over christmas. They speak english when you email, so don't afraid to ask them questions.

    One end mounts outside the shock, the other will require a small hole drilled in the frame rail or you can make shift a bracket similar to that which holds the bash plate on the under rails if you don't like drilling holes in your bike

    Haven't been on an extended ride yet, keep you posted

    What was it that USMC Gunnery Sgt Lee Ermey said about Steers & other forms of life coming from Texas? :D

    But maybe the Aussies have a head start on picking the purtiest ones?

    Had some spare time so I polished up the levers, bar end weights and heat shield on the side cover. They where all a dull aluminum with a light clear coat on them.
    The clear burned right off on the buffer and all the parts are mirror finish now:D Took a half hour and they look much better now...
    A few weeks ago I polished all the oil cooler line ends, the engine fins on the head, the axle's and nuts and just about anything I could find that would polish up..

    Nice! They look good and I imagine the polished surfaces feel nice too. Are you going to end up having to spend a bit of time keeping them polished now?

    Tumwater Canyon, near Leavenworth Washington. Scrambler is working out great for exploring all the little paved and unpaved roads in the area!

    Its not to bad to keep everything looking good, 30-45 minutes once a month with some polish...

    Great pic, I've been in that area in a 4x4, very nice country. Now go out and get a bash/skid plate for your bike:D
