First things first - Greatest thread ever!

I am a lover of anything bikes, bit of a track junkie - here is a pic of me and the 636. Forgive me its not a scrammy :P



This thread has been a life saver. A few months back I had a big accident. Got hit at around 100kph on the Freeway, guy gave me the old 'I just didnt see you'. Ended up with 5 broken bones and some titanium to hold me together and a totalled MV Augusta :( (all part of riding a bike as you all know).

Anyway I was in hospital for a bit and stuck at home during rehab and this thread really helped me keep my chin up and focus on getting better. Decided to keep the sports bikes for the track and get a bike that I can stop a smell the roses with and I always loved the scrambler. It has that special something that is just so hard to find in a bike. Once insurance and rehab is sorted out I will hopefully be heading down to my local trumpy dealer with a truck full of farkle and leave with a scrambler :)

Until then, shiny side up and keep the pics coming.

Back from Holidays with my Scrambler in Italy

Hi,
I just returned from a holiday trip to Italy.
We (my wife and I) went by car but towed a trailer behind us and on this trailer - guess what - our Triumph Scrambler.
We did some 500 km of wonderful excursions over tiny mountain passes, like the Passo di Croce Domini (1895 m) and the Passo Maniva (2112 m).

and

and

and

While they look kind of funny... those wooden beads sure makes the seat feel better on longer runs

Anyone know of an aftermarket brake pedal that will fit? I ordered lower pegs, and my brake pedal is going to be way too high. I think the stock is aluminum (?) so I can't bend it.
No replies on Triumprat, either.

You can adjust the high of the brake pedal without bending it.

Love the Mohave exhaust. Is there more leg clearance than the stock high pipes?

Well, I haven't tried yet (haven't had time). But, in the current config, it's about an inch too high, and that's with the stock pegs. I think the pegs I ordered are going to be 3/4" lower, and I've never seen a brake pedal that had 2" of height adjustment in it. Just eyeballing the Scrambler, I'm guessing it's got maybe 1/2" range.

I just cut the alloy one back by 2 inches bought a folding steel gear lever cut the splined end off drilled two holes in both and it works great, the tip folds back when ya drop the bike its ajustable for hight and only bends so you can straighten it out on the trail
