- for the luggage, you've got many solutions. The Ventura pack rack is for me one off the most beautiful as when no luggage the bike seems stock. You can also throw soft luggage on the seat and use the Triumph number plate to protect from heat.
I have test ridden the Scrambler and the Bonnie T100. I love much more the motor off the Scram as in low RPM he's like a Thumper or a little like a little HD Vtwin. I feel the Bonnie more electrical. But it is my feeling, each one has to made is own opinion.
I have a Scrambler & Thruxton, The exhaust on the Scram can get hot in traffic when it's over 30c, not a big deal. I have the Ventura system & it's pretty good as well & I agree the Thruxton is smoother but I like that.
