    ... is cold and wet as a dogs nose here today what's it like there?
    Nice and sunny here, took my Diavel to a looooooong ride to work to clear the GPR pipe's throat, to cure my lust for the new shiny Indian Didn't go away. This exhaust is destined to be ditched, and Indian knows it.

    I have a wood shed that needs filling :/ would trade you weather but not the work.

    Aftermarketeers are going to have a devil of a time fitting raised pipes on that bike.
    & check out the passenger peg location Perfect reach for the average american 3 year old. Those have to go too.

    I read somewhere yesterday that Akropovik already has two slip-on exhaust options for the FTR - low and high - available.

    Passengers? I don't need no stinking passengers! Passenger pegs would just go away and never be thought about again if I were to buy one. I have the Green Beast for 2 ups. The Scout is a solo ride and so would the FTR be, for me.

    Totally agree; I'd rather have an insurance reduction then useless passenger pegs on a bike that should be ridden solo anyway. High pipes on that ride are going to be a serious leg burn hazard, 4-stroke headers run serious hot, almost certainly that is why the factory went with down pipes. I wouldn't be able to own something like that and Not race it would get hazardous and expensive in a real hurry, all it needs is a dirt horse track and I know where there are several of those.

    Insurance reduction --- do Canadian insurance outfits drop the rates for bikes set up for solo riding versus having accommodations for passengers?

    no that would be logical, it's not offered, I asked.

    I also pay extra premiums because my spouse has an M license, ignore the fact she can't pilot either of my street bikes.
    I also pay separate liability policies on my sea-doo's, but it's not nearly as outrageous $



    ... nicer day today, fish are bitting, woodshed filling nicely life is good if you don't weaken
