Nice one Jerry and glad you got the extras on now. I got mine plain sadly even though I shelled out money for parts. Tank stripe looks good. What else are you doing to it. Hope you enjoyed the riding like I did.

I think the racing stripe looks great. Exhaust also is pretty.

Is that your helmet that I see behind the bike? Is it yellow and black? It won't match with your red bike if it is. What are you going to do about that?

??? :p

Looking forward to hearing more about your experience with the Scrambler once you have a bit more time with it.

Zeus that is my lid but I've got 5. That one, (Shoei Neotech), a red white and blue Bell, a white Schuberth C3, a black Harley open face and a red Bultaco open face, I reckon I've got a few that'll match the bike :)


I've posted my initial thoughts in the review section. Some good, some not so good!

Are the handle bars wobbly? I don't like the rubber seals giving the bars flex
No they're not. If you've heard reports of 'wobbly' bars I'd put that down to the harsh front suspension.

I sat on mine last week and the handle bars were flexie as if they were loose, the dealer said they use rubber washers to dampen the ride. Anyone else experience this?

They are rubber mounted and best bars I have ever had from a Ducati and no aching wrist because they are damped. Not extreme damping and even fixed bars have a certain amount of flex. I don't find anything worrying about mine and my XT500D mounts are flexible from 1977.
You could always get them solid mounted if you are worried. Back to buzzing wrists for you though. ;)
