Danger, Will Robinson! You don't have to be a speed demon to scrape a peg every now and again. Best to have folders.

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
Congratulations! Nice Scram! Best colours too . And what splendid roads to ride it on. What is this valley called? I'd detour WAY off route to ride those roads if I was ever passing!! Awesome!!

This valley's called Goms. It's adjacent to the big one named Valais in Switzerland. Look at Sierre then Brig and Andermatt on google map and here you are.

I'm in

Just bought a '10 with Ohlins as my 2-up bike. Now, I've got crap to buy... footpegs, turn signals, luggage rack, and who knows what else.

Crappy cell phone pic...

Yep, it was his. I looked all over the web tonight for pegs, but haven't found any I like (yet). If/when I do, I'll PM you.

Next week, sept 1st on saturday, I'll do a testride on this '08 Scrambler(just 12.630km's) and if there's a good deal on my '08 XT660Z Tenere, it will be my next bike.

Greetz, Hans.

Hi folks just joined the forum, I see I've got 800 pages to catch up on! That'll take some time, up to P16 at the moment .....

Just bought the ex demo 2012 Matt black Scrambler at a good discount from the local dealers, 800 miles on the clock. I thought it sounded rather fruity, and just had a look at the cans and found they were marked 'Not for Road Use'. Seems it's got Triumph competition exhausts, Googling the number stamped on them.

Now wondering what to do. If I take it back the dealer they'll probably swap them for the legal ones, but they may hold on to the fruity ones, and the bike will sound like a sewing machine! Ideal scenario would be for them to give me the original ones to take away, but would they do this? Should I just say nothing? Would I be able to pick up some standard cans cheap when he time comes for Its 3 year test (or if I get pulled)?

Scrambling around on one lane pavement...


Which leads to 40 miles of dirt road...



Which in turn leads to the bar and bloody marys.


Over four days & 600 miles...
Gotta love it.

I have a Scrambler & find the stock mufflers are too soft & the TOR's are too loud, if only I could find something in between..I keep swapping them.
Now I have a Thruxton as well with Staintunes & while still legal sounds great, if only I could get the Scrambler to sound the same.
If I was you I would try & get the stock mufflers from the dealer, I talked to a exhaust guy about making the TOR's softer, could not be done however he could make the standard mufflers louder.

Hope this is of some help, cheers Terry
