    Glad you made it safe JdYowa. I know the feeling. I was caught in some viscous storms in the Canadian Prairies...very vulnerable when there is no place to go, literally riding it out and praying.

    The Anakee's sound like a good choice though.

    Cheers.

    Hey JdYowa - I grew up in Orange Park (Fleming Island - before it all blew up down there). Which 9 miles were you on? Also thanks for a rain friendly tire review. I'm looking forward to a new set for the winter, where we are drizzly wet all season. As it is, you probably got more rain yesterday than we have seen since April.
    Ride safe!

    I work on the north-west side off Soutel. Very bad neighborhood, but it's a concrete plant so they usually don't put them in nice neighborhoods. I was coming down Prichard, just north of I-10. I live in Orange Park in the newer Oakleaf area that probably didn't exist when you were here.

    Been a good tire. They are a 90/10 but I haven't really tried them off road. Too much Sand in Florida and The Stockies didn't even handle that well.

    Last week we did some goofing around on some triumphs, sportsters and an old XL. I made a quick edit of some of the outtakes, and uploaded it to vid.me out of laziness and here is the result: https://vid.me/eu5Z

    Hope you all enjoy. Scrambling is made better with some sunshine and at least a couple inexperienced but eager riders.

    Much better than some pseudo-soulful GoPro warrior selfie ballad set to EDM. Thanks for keeping it brief and to the point. Looked like fun!!

    Please post up pics of the speedo and head light. I'll be on the hunt for both this winter.
    Thanks a ton.

    Anyone have a good option for a USB power supply on the Scrambler? I need something reliable to charge GPS and phone while riding long distances. Thanks!

    Got out into the woods today. Pretty impressed at how stable the bike felt in really loose gravel.

    Then thought about how much fun it would be to do a wall ride...
