I had one of those Scramblers for a coupla days and I thought it was great.
I actually took the thing off road and it was surprisingly stable and easy to ride. I could own one..

How does the pipe go with the heating of the leg?

Cheers

Hello Deus

A man of fine taste I see

Once you remove the AI the pipes will cool down considerably.

This one of the ones that's been hanging around Procycles all year, hopefully depreciating till I could afford one?
And if you're THAT Deus, does this mean it'll appear in the showroom in a month or two all tarted up (not that there's anything wrong with that) for 20 grand?

Hamo, standing on the pegs I havent noticed it that much, to be honest i think whilst moving it's not really gonna be a prob, perhaps at very slow speeds things will warm up, or while sitting at lights etc, but as dave said, remove the AI and things get cooler still.

Shmerel - awesome, i can only suggest you go test ride one

The engines a pearler, the stock suspension needs work and it has a very pleasant feel (which is hard to describe in a sentance). I'm taking mine to the Koz rally and if you are a very good boy...
