    Great picture!
    I have a question for you regarding the heat radiation of the exhaust of your Scrambler.
    Is the heat generated when driving sufficiently damped by the standard heat shield, or do you grill your thigh every time you go out?

    Markus - Good question, yes the heat is really bad when sitting in traffic on a hot day. It is not a problem any other time, but it is bad under those conditions. This spring I plan on decating the bike and adding some insulative/heat reflective material on the inside of the heat shields.

    How far you pushing those stock tires before getting something more off-road focused?
    Also, what bars did you install for those panniers? I just got the same bike and trying to figure out a good luggage solution. thanks!

    Thanks. I rode the stock tires offroad and didnt mind them. They're 85/15, but did okay IMO. Still, I had Dunlop Trailmax Missions put on today. Can't wait to try them tomorrow in Washington :)
