ya, there is a hefty brace there (having just taken the forks apart). It looks like the scrambler braces available are a bit higher on the fork so I figured it couldn't hurt.

Lets see some innovation Ace! Great ideas can make it to main stream.
Your bike is sweet, so keep with the artistic flair.
The rear cross member tied in to the peg mount could make for well... something. Your pipes realistically get in the way for the tightest clean set-up.
But... brainstorm!
Others have pointed out, if you go down, having the passenger pegs saves a lot of damage. If nothing else.
I keep my pegs on in case that wayward brunette wanders my way for a great ride for two to off in the sunset.
Ya, I'm a dreamer.

Seriously, I've been using a Stebel Nautilus Compact Dual-Tone 12-Volt Motorcycle Air Horn, 139 dB, Black for years. It does get cagers attention, no doubt.



Sweet! Gracias!

Here it is installed on my Honda CBF1000... it bolted straight onto the existing horn tab.

Whats up guys! Been riding my scrambler 2-up from Toronto to California with some Kriega luggage. All is well so far, the bike cruises at 140km/h loaded no problem. The trip was impromptu so I ended up borrowing a rear rack from a friend and buying a US20 and US30 to compliment my R30 backpack. As I said.. it was impromptu and I had a set of TKC80s just put on it the week before so we've been riding on those. No issues so far.

Right now we're in Lexington, Nebraska. We're supposed to be hitting Denver, Colorado today but the weather is kinda crap so we might take the day off. We passed/met a lot of Harley guys on their way to Sturgis and they nearly choke on their beer every time I tell them we're riding to Cali on it. They say I need an Electra-glide and Harleys are better.. That said, no one pays attention to their Harleys whenever the scram is around. Feels good everytime we take a break, people take photos with the bike. I'll get some photos/videos up sometime soon when I have the time.

You're making some good time. Walter and I stopped at Grand Island, Nebraska. Watch out for police radar traps in Nebraska. They usually hang out under overpasses on the I-80 heading into/out of Colorado. Ride safe!

Telemark-ring

Took a 400 km trip around Telemark, visit small lakes and the channel system that lift the boats 24 m from lower to high point.





A view point on the gravel section


lunch stop :-)

New Scram and drippage

Just bought a 2013 on Friday and I haven't even hit the century mark yet and noticed a few drops of light tan/greyish fluid on the frame just under the chain. Can this be normal dyring break-in or am I going to lose my bike to the dealer for a month??

Excess chain lube flinging off.

+1 to the chain lube, or also can be the waxy stuff they coat the bikes in before shipping, sometimes it doesn't all get cleaned off.

These are deliberate drops and there's minimal flinging. Nothing on the ground under the bike. I'll get on my computer later and post a couple pics. It does appear to be coming from the front chain gear area.

Thanks for the input.
