Good luck
Who's wearing open face with these bikes?
I don't and most of the pictures on the scrambler forum show riders using either enduro full face or street full face with bubble shields.

Here's my scrambler helmet.

Good luck!
Tell me more, I'm doing the same thing. I just need a base model semi high milage Scrambler to come up so i can turn it into a daily rider!!!

7/14/21K miles are good times to buy?

I have one of those and I'm not so sure it's that much safer in a SERIOUS crash than a 3/4...half my face is damn near sticking out of the massive hole.

2 of my boys had bought Triumph Scramblers, so I thought old Dad could slip in there with them on open face helmet rides and be old school cool.

Gotcha. My bad.

Yeah the Duc Scrambler will do over a ton - that will hurt sliding.

Most people in Florida donít even wear long pants or any helmet when they ride. I wear a porridge bowl and Kevlar jeans and gloves and Iím roasting. The number one cause of motorcycle accidents in Florida for those who wear atgatt is passing out from heat prostration . I am virtually the only person in Florida wearing a helmet. Doesnít make it right, doesnít make it smart, but it is how it is.
