    Really good looking bike Gibber. Beauty seat. I hope you have farkle fever! Your bike is just begging for personalization.

    Thanks Maxacceleration! First box of farkles are on the way and arrive later in the week.

    Would like to also add a bar riser to the bike but the cables seem a bit short. Need to do more research for that.

    Gibber, I have the now first generation Scrambler. I broke it in around Carnation, Duvall, West Valley road as I lived in Redmond at the time. I now live in Wenatchee - I'd be glad to ride with you anytime. It would be a great photo op of old & new Scramblers side by side. You buy it at I-90, from Don by chance?

    I ride that same route! I have a 45 mile loop that takes me through Carnation and Duvall and crosses the river a couple times. I'll definitely let you know when I head over to Wenatchee as it would be fun to ride together!

    I did get the bike from I-90 (worked with Kerry and Kurt). Good guys!

    Skinny, depending on which direction you are going, there's a nice road that goes by Jubilee Farm (near Fall City/Carnation). Very little traffic, some nice turns and good scenery.

    Oh ho, this is a pavement route. Well I guess my Thruxton will have to go play!

    This bike seems pretty capable and fun for some offroad :)

    I like the new one a lot, but for riding with a passenger, I would choose the old one

    How do the ergos compare? Which is more comfortable?

    The new SS is starting to catch my eye but it looks small like the ST.

    I've got one and put about 1000 miles on it so far. Ridden in the rain, ridden 2up. I've put some highway miles on it and some dirt road miles too.

    First impressions have worn off at this point and she's in my stable of a few bikes.

    What I love: the styling and detail is on point.

    What I like: the ergonomics and sound. My girlfriend is ok on the pillion seat though it's a little small. Best for around town, grabbing dinner or drinks.

    What I don't like: power is a little lacking. I wish it had 10 or 20 more hp to make it a little more entertaining to ride. That being said I know it's no race bike, I've had a few R1s over the years.

    Overall I really enjoy it around town and it just makes you feel cool. It sounds right leaving a redlight and looks great when you pull up to a spot with your girl on the back.

    Thanks man. The green one is my buddy Juan's.

    We've cruised dirt/gravel roads with them going 75 and they happily float along. The switchable abs and tcs is nice. Pegs are a little low, it doesn't take much to drag them with a little spirited riding but it's fun to hear them scrape. I mostly like short shifting and opening the throttle to get the exhaust note to really sing.

    Jake,
    I ride " mostly off the beaten path, but you know, You have to ride pavement to get there usually. I like a lot of things they did with the 2017, I always felt like I needed to be so careful on the 2016. TOO MUCH CHROME. Looks good on a pavement Pony. not for off road riding.
    Comparing. I'm 6'1" 190lb. the 2016 fit very well, tank felt about right size, handlebars felt a little "small" hard to explain but they felt small to me. Bike handles great unless you have to hit the binders on pavement. Be ready for a little slide. It does that pretty easy.
    The 2017 feels a little bit smaller, maybe because of the tank. It is a gallon less. also a bit narrower. the shorter seat height doesn't bother me at all. I kinda thought it would. Surprisingly, the handlebars on the 2017 seem bigger. I like that. I'm planing on getting some riding in this weekend, weather is finally better here.
    I've camped with the 2016, tied a backpack on the rear seat. still looking for a option for the new Bike.
