It's not what I did to her, but what I did for her.

I took her out for 60 miles (it is cold BTW) to warm those tires, heat that oil, and top off the tank with fresh gas. Oh, and I did enjoy the ride of course. Flannel pajama bottoms underneath my fleece lined jeans LOL
Hey-- that's my secret formula for cold weather riding!!!

Where did you buy your Galfer disc? I'm interested in a floating style front disc in the UK...
Hi Jonty03, Disc came from:

Performance Parts Ltd. in Daventry, Northamptonshire. brakes-and-wheels

Had to wait about 4 weeks for delivery as this is not a stock item and Galfer make to order it seems. Really nice piece of engineering?

Be sure to check the Galfer Brake pads shown as correct for your year Scout (2017 onwards have different pads - see the sticky about "correct pads for your Scout" on the Scout forum), as the Galfer catalogue had shown the incorrect pads for my 2018 Scout 60. Not the fault of PP but Galfer!
I had to buy EBC pads for mine and return those that were sent in error.

Hope this helps(y)

I'm already using a set of EBC sintered front pads so I assume a Galfer disc would be fine with those? Thanks for the information.?

Got my Scout Fairing on finally - does exactly what I was hoping for wrt wind management and looks pretty good too
Did you install the rubber headlight boot with your fairing? If so, is it holding up ok? The dealer told me they weren't worth installing and so far I have not. Thanks

How's yours without the boot? Any airflow problems? I'm finding that the boot just causes bugs to get stuck between the headlight and fairing that are tough to clean out. I'm considering removing it.

Changed out seat for a Reduced Reach.
I have a mild case of T-rex arms syndrome. :giggle:

Didn’t think it was enough to change my handlebars, and ever since I put Kuryakyn Spear grips on I didn’t want to unglue the clutch side grip anyway.

First impression: the seat fixes my handlebar reach. Very comfortable.

Although there were things I didn’t even think about when getting the seat.
Position nearer the gas tank. Practically no gap there anymore, with inner thighs touching the tank.
Downward look to speedometer. However it seems to be insignificant since it was already a downward look.
Windshield line of sight change, yet there might be an actual improvement for helmet buffeting in my case. I couldn’t tell for sure because it was mostly gusty winds today and tonight.
Foot position. I dragged one heel of my boots, first time in a long time. Again, not sure what to make of that.
Possible need to retrain due to my previous ride handling experiences.

Maybe there’s more… One thing is certain, only had one main thing on my mind when changing to this reduce reach seat. And that was to just stop feeling like I was reaching slightly forward more than I wanted to.
I sure accomplished that anyhow. Unless I go and change my mind about it later on!

oh yeah, pictures.

After just over 10 months and 5001 miles I sold my Scout Bobber today and put the funds to my my next bike, Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE. The good news is we still have my wife's Scout Bobber if she is ever willing to swap keys with me for a day.

Sold my 2016 Black Scout 60 and bought a 2020 Scout can’t wait to get it and weather to warm up. Going to put my bags and solo seat on it as well as floorboards.

Thanks, I did look at the new bobbers too, LOVE the colours, but I need bags. If they had some of the bobber colours on the scout I would have gone with the flat burgundy one.
