Hi JustKip, I've ridden Bonnie Se, Bonnie T100 and don't like them. I've test ridden the Scram and just love it.
So I will just advertise to test a Scram before you do anything. There's a big difference between the two motor, ground clearance and so on.

This looks beautiful. I think the single pipe is 100% improvement on the original pipes that look like a couple of droopy dog dicks and quite frankly spoil the whole shebang.

To me though, a big part of Scrambler charm is that 270 motor. For that reason alone, for me, a Scrambled Bonnie would never satisfy.

Scruxton...

Sort of cool... Was putting a battery tender pigtail on each bike and put my wife's Thruxton seat on the Scrambler. Looks alot faster with that stripe.

I think I've posted this pic before, but I'm kinda going for a desert sled/touring/cafe. Probably not pulling it off, but oh well.
Pretty sure there's no doubt a Bonnie can do everything a Scram can, save the particular exhaust note. Very nice ride.

OK,
Just thought I'd show how my Vision X (same as Twisted Throttle & Denali ) mounted.

Since the pics were taken, I've angled them down a lot more to avoid blinding people!

Its so much better than just stock headlight, I can actually go into the darkest countryside and see everything now.

Oh and to avoid them being nicked, I used special nuts n bolts.

Here we go for some close up pics.




LHS as you look at it is a spot light. It now points a lot further down to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic. RHS is a fog.




All pics can be found her in higher resolution.

It's the Zard Cross and it sounds awesome. It came with the baffle in and sounded okay, but weak. Also made a little chirp noise when you let off the gas. Took it out immediately and love it. Moved from San Diego to Washington, where they don't seem to like loud bikes and now I get all sorts of dirty looks. Oh well.

Cost me right around $1000 from the Zard USA site, if I remember right. Was the cheapest I found.

Hi, standard Thruxton seat cowl on the single/rack seat and Moto Guzzi LeMans fairing.(make your own brackets with Airtech version or more fitted from Raische)
