Warning, this probably seems a bit esoteric, but i had to share:


So yesterday, I stared planning some of the modifications to my bike, got a bit frisky and tried lowering the stock handlebar to see how it handled. While in the process, i knicked the paint on the scramblers paint and just about had a heart attack..

Later, i went for a ride, and had a chat with a gentleman owning a BMW about how much he loved my bike. he oogled it for a solid 10 minutes. Dude.... I GOT PLACES TO BE!! ;)

Later that day, I took my close friend of mine for a ride, my first passenger ride on this bike. I went into the twisties and and was so surprised. THIS THING RIPS. maybe its because I just got my first service, but wow, did this thing love the backroads. I've been on a sportbike before this, but i felt like i was ripping hard and faster on this sucker.

after, i took her to go to a famous soft-serve ice cream stand, as the sun was setting.

Coming home from this whole experience, I thought, WOW, I LOVE THIS BIKE. I was so thrilled at my purchase. I hate to sound cheesy, but it gives off this vibe of "enjoy the moment, because you only get it once"

Anyone else have a cheesy experience like this?

I haven't stopped riding this bike, well unless the weather dictates :rolleyes:. I reckon I've ridden it more than my last two bikes put together :D. I am certainly living in the moment with it, I can't think of any other bike I'd enjoy more :)

I have made more excuses to go for a ride then any other bike I have owned in the last 40 years. I also have to agree that the handling on this thing constantly puts a smile on my face. Yesterday I took it down some of my favorite back country roads with zero traffic and no animal crossings and hit some familiar corners at over twice the suggested posted speed with room to spare.

About the only other recent bike I can say that about was my Triumph Daytona 675 but try riding that down a fire road like you can with the Scrambler.

Welcome Jake, I agree this bike is a hooligan in fact a Tazmanian Devil. I am scraping both feet it handles superbly. In fact our multistrada guys out at the EMM in the Pyrenees a few weeks ago had Reuben Xaus, and ex Ducati superbike turn up .He was riding a Scrambler, and had managed to scrape the foot pegs and also the exhaust silencer!
It's a beauty for sure. Note to self try scrape foot pegs tomorrow :angel:

YEAH this thing is crazy! my only negative so far is that i feel the footpegs may be lower to the ground. with my size 11 feet, unless i consciously put my feet higher on the footpeg, i scrape in the corners... maybe i'm just riding harder than i ever have befbore haha.


My first mods will be
tail tidy w/ integrated tail signals
new front sigals
lower handlebar
headlight cowling
windscreen
