Joel - Yeah I thought we were thinking different things when I saw the pic you sent me of the bar-ends. I adjusted the handlebars and levers yesterday but didn't get out for a ride. Way too much going on in the shop at the moment. I will probably be working in the shop all this coming weekend but I can see light at the end of the tunnel and possibly by the 3rd or 4th week of September I might be able to get away for a weekend ride. It'll be nice to see the two Scramblers side-by-side and see if we can't get them all muddied up. BTW, when I rode it home Saturday morning the first thing I did was slap the tankbag on the tank but I couldn't agree more about the first scratches on a new bike. Eventually it happens.
