Today wake up at 5h50 without a clock
Weather forecast are 34°c, 0° at 4800m.
It will be a nice day.

6h50, we are ready.

Gonna take the rail to go throug the mountain out there

Arrived in Emmental at 9h30, the old Beemer will stay here

10h45, the business is done I can take the road

Bit later, between 'Emmental and 'Entlebruch

Down on the Luzern lake

Up to Brünig pass

Grimsel pass

All of the road from today looked like that

I've made 150 km with the beemer and 250 with the scram.
Man this bike is a blast to ride. And took only 4l for 100km.
It's a 2006 scrambler, red/white, one of the coolest ones. With 11 000 km on it.
It as the alloy fluid brake cup, the Triumph bash plat with six speed holes!
A new front disk, new tires and neutralized AI.
Looks like new.

I'm very very happy

About tyres

I got Battle Wings on it. They where said "best dual purpose tyres for on road" by a French mag who tested them.
And in fact, they work very well. Haven't tested on wet road or gravel for the time but it will come.

I haven't been through the zillion pages on this thread, but could someone tell me if the Scrambler would fit a passenger while using bags? My current bike won't, and I was wondering if the Scrambler would fit the bill.
We aren't large (I'm 5'8 and 150 and she's 5'2 and 120), if that matters.
I can't find any pics showing luggage with a passenger.

We all did our first waist-deep+ water crossing yesterday...got plenty wet and my buddy on the left on the bonnie for some reason sat down and tucked...he was fully submerged and had water coming out of his helmet when he made it through...on momentum...because his engine cut out....

Didn't get any pics of the crossing, but there was plenty of time for pics as we dried off

Great clips and great terrain for riding! I cringe everytime a car appears because I forget you guys ride on the left side.

I don't have any firsthand experience since I don't have luggage attached to my scrambler, but I've seen it done plenty. There's a great YouTube vid of a married couple touring Europe (and they were most definitely more than 270lbs combined ;) )

My wife and I ride two up with a Triumph city bag stuffed and a backpack on her. I'm 6'1, 190lbs. She's 5'10, 150lbs. plus all the gear and such. The scrambler does just fine at 70mph with plenty grunt to pass. Power isn't a problem, and at your sizes, space should be plenty sufficient.

Just get her a gel seat or the seat concepts upgraded foam and cover, and she'll be happy.

I know eh!?! Everything about it, the color of the tank, to the copper/bronze in the exhaust, the tires, it's a very sharp bike!

The seat looks great too, but I don't think any long trips could be performed on that plank.

Answer is yes. If you have 3 plus minutes, watch this video.
