    Yeah, I have a 2011 I bought new. Steve McQueen green. Metal mule pannier racks and Happy Trails Teton panniers. Love it. Also have the solo seat setup.

    You can sort of see it in this attachment to an old post. https://tw200forum.com/forum/attachme...bike-rokon.jpg

    Although, admittedly I was taking a picture of the Rokon at the time.

    It simply doesn't compare to the TW. It is a different machine all together. Lots of power and speed. Great handling and very responsive to throttle. It is not however what I would call a true adventure bike. It simply doesn't have the suspension and such for that. Plenty fine for fire roads though, but I used to ride a BMW GS for 15 years, and it isn't in that category. The Scrambler is also a heavy bike. In the picture you see the panniers, which I generally remove and unbolt the racks when a trip is not on the horizon. When that stuff is off I put on a solo seat and a small rear cowl with a very small rack. In my opinion the solo seat is far more attractive and further enhances he "cool" factor. It was in for service recently and the shop guys weren't too thrilled with my cleaning program. I ride the thing, and I live on a dirt road. It's generally ruggedly dirty. I'm not much of a bike polisher. The other bike you see just barely is a military Enfield, which for reasons I can't explain (largely due to it's incredibly primitive mechanics) I enjoy immensely. It looks like this (except mine has an old fashioned sprung solo seat:

    I guess I did't really answer all of your question. It's hard to say what I enjoy riding more. When I ride the TW, I generally ride off road, and I get to ride with my nephews, which I enjoy very much. I really don't consider the TW much of a road machine. When I ride the Scrambler I am generally alone, and I frequently take trips on it. Different applications I guess. I suppose if it wasn't for the boys I would not ride the TW much at all. I am an old motocross racer and very comfortable off road. I am used to using throttle to manage off road situations at speed which simply isn't an option on a TW. If it wasn't for the boys I would probably be riding something like a WR450F with a street kit. (Yes, I know that is sacrilege here, but it's the truth.

    Oh, I have a few bikes Yes, I have heard the arrow exhaust, it is impressive. Many switch exhaust to avoid having to offset the panniers. Truthfully though, the stock exhaust has a very pleasant "Triumph" type resonance that I like. There are videos on line where you can hear the arrow.
