Yeah, but how much will you be riding it? You have to be going through withdrawals.

Went riding with Keffs last week… 3 hours each way… right shoulder blade aching since… think the wide handlebars on the Scrambler may be causing me a problem…. Testing the V4 Panigale and the new multi nxt week 🙏I need help🤔

You're named Duchess of Desmo for a reason, how many Ducs have you owned now?

No shoulder issues, but my air-cooled Multi gave me odd little pains in the elbows, almost like tennis elbow, after a long ride. I switched to a lower, narrower bar (Rizoma) and the problem went away. I don't mean to discourage you from getting a Multi, but if you want to keep the Scrambler, comfort may be a simple bar swap away.

Your correct🤔 Michael had a new Suzuki GSXR 750 … thought he’d had a stroke couldn’t lift his arm up withiut it dropped down. Turns out he had a trapped nerve due to the new riding position. Put helirisers on and no problem. Great suggestion by Milovanstrada aka Miles.
Haven’t been back out on Scrambler since… need to get out on my Honda ANF 125 it’s sitting doing nothing….. then will try Scrambler. To be honest though I feel very unfit being a Nurse all I’ve done since Pandemic is work most nights usually just one night a week off 🙈 difficult with staff shortages. Will bear that in mind🤞
