    They are a bit loud when I stomp it but around town not bad. Of course I find no reason to crack the throttle in town. I've finally reached the age of maturity (senility?) that I don't feel the need. The legs do not burn with the shields on. The pipes added a bit more oomph in my opinion.

    I like the blacked out shields. I almost went for blacked out pipes from BC. Bennington is the weekend you will be gone. There is a British Bike rally next weekend near Oswego I've been told. I am going with the local BMW group. It is Saturday.

    Spent last week in Arkansas. What a lovely place to ride! I was especially impressed by the lack of traffic, compared to east Texas.

    Found some cool spots to picnic:

    The Scrambler performed admirably, a little over 2k miles total. Used up almost half of my new rear tire, but it was well worth it.

    I'm powder coating my scramblers clutch cover (and other parts). Thought I would also replace the 3 roller bearings inside after(one for gear shifter, 2 for clutch mechanism). Local dealer states the bearings can't be pulled with out damaging the clutch cover. They also say the oven temperature or the residue from sand blasting will fail the bearings. They want me to buy new covers. I can order the bearings, so if they can sell the bearings they must be removable.

    The obvious is to clean the bearings inside the cover best I can and re-use.

    But;
    I can't believe these bearings can't be removed. Must be a trick or special tool.

    Entertaining Scrambler commercial. Is that the stock headlight? It looks like it works better than mine.

    Hi Tom,

    That's just the regular iphone5 camera. I didn't even know it did panorama shots till this trip. That little swimming hole was worth a good picture.

    I don't want to take us into the weeds about photography, but that is really a nice pic. I've got a Sony SLR and little Panasonic that will do panos for me - built in software stitches the photos together vs taking a series and using Photoshop or something else to make one. No wonder digital camera sales are being hurt by smart phones doubling as decent cameras. Keep taking those, their great!

    Was finally able to locate and mount a single saddlebag for the left side of my Scrambler - I used the left half of River Road's Model: Classic Quick-Release Compact bags. I was able to buy the saddlebag bracket only from the Triumph single saddlebag kit that had previously been available for the Scramblers - then a visit to the local leather shop to fabricate some straps that attach to the frame under the seat and I'm in business. I like the look and though I was afraid the bike would look awkward with only one bag, it actually is nicely balanced visually by the high pipes on the right. The bag is "pleather" - not real leather - but comes with a nylon rain cover and is large enough to hold some rain gear and a small tool kit without being too large. The bag measures 15.5" W x 10" H x 5" D, and comes with an interior removable liner as well as the rain cover.

    I have the right side bag available if anyone else is interested - will let it go for my cost ($60) plus shipping - only problem would be that the extra pocket on the outside of the bag (at the rear of the bag as shown on my bag) would be on the front and might interfere with a passengers left leg. PM me if interested and I'll share the details.

    Just to say that I'done the bafflectomie last week. The sound is now perfect to me, not as loud as with the TOR's, but enough for the cars to hear me.

    And to show you my new signature. :D

    Good to hear the baffectomy worked out. The TOR's you dropped off are still in Lorrach as I haven't had a chance to pick them up.

    I have the same bags on my '79 Suzuki GS550. They fit the style of the bike very well. They will melt though so be careful if you decide to drop it off the other side with just number plate for protection.
