Finding a lower bar shouldn't be a problem.

It's getting old. They would gain more customer service points by admitting they don't have a production run set up than by quoting false delivery dates.

IMHO
I hear ya, and am also skeptical. I just figured since John from Reseda has had his for awhile they would have pulled the trigger by now! Here's Jake's exact message: "This is still in progress and is close to being done. We did get delayed by a few other projects. I hope it will be ready in 2-4 weeks."

So... we'll see. A couple of months is nothing to the 10 months I waited for the bike!

Tired of waiting

I bailed on waiting for the Scotts. I lost faith in the whole process. Too many delays for me. I've got a lot or riding planned this summer and life is too short. I bit the bullet and got the Ralle-Moto. I f---ing love it. It so easy to adjust that I use it all the time. A little in town, add some on the freeway if there is a lot of turbulence, cranik off road as required. And I can switch between three different damping modes too. I've already forgotten what it cost, and glad I did it. Sorry Scotts.

Well... good advice boys. I'll check out the Ralle-Moto too. I'm with you on forgetting the price after a bit. So long as it works and saves my ass when it needs to... priceless.

+3 Rallye Moto is a first class product. I love it. I did shear the pin at the thread below the nut on the mounting bracket and I had it welded to the nut and the nut welded to the bracket. But I ride in some nasty rocks out here in Colorado.

A friend of mine bought in Adventurers Workshop and installed a ROC Stompa steering dampener which has worked flawless in sand and 'ripio' ... check it.

Also got tired of waiting for the Scotts. Ordered and installed the Rally-moto. Fantastic product. Highly recommend. I have Scotts on both my pure off-road bikes, and the Rally-moto is a better product---so far.

I called Scotts and let them know they are losing sales due to their (fill in the blank).
It's too bad. They really did a nice job on mine.
We'll see.

GPR damper for F8GS?

I still haven't pulled the trigger on the Scott's ("it's only money!"), but was in the local shop today (SDBMWMC) and mentioned that a damper was prolly my next farkle.

The guy I was speaking with (Brian) mentioned that they sent one of their F800GS bikes over to a local place called GPR to see about getting one built for the bike. I guess GPR already makes a bunch of dirt and sport bike dampers and the shop is currently running one on their S1000RR they campaign out here on the west coast.

Anyone have experience with the GPR brand? Thanks.
