Welcome Tiger, it´s nice to have you back. You´ve missed one thing: XC 800 looks like a 21st century UFO, not like H.M. MOTORCYCLE ... but I agree with all you mentioned. On the other hand - adding comfort, weather protection, suspension, load, speed ... you loose great part of "scramblering". TIGER 800 is great consumer product, Scrambler is not. It is too "radical" for it. Two different conceptions for different audience. I like both of them but I want just the ONE.
Current bikes: Triumph Scrambler (09-), Honda CBF 250 (06-)
Bike history: Simson 50 Enduro (84-89), MZ 251 ETZ (90-95), Suzuki XF 650 Freewind (97-02), Aprilia ETV 1000 Caponord (03-09)
