Why did some of you convert a Scrami into a cafe' bike ? Why not just buy a Bonnie or a Thruxton ?

Yes, Metalmule setup. The box does not get hot (cooked) but does get carbon stains from the exhaust.

I think they are Shinko 705 tires.

I'd like to know if the low pipe on the bike with the polished aluminum tank fits the Scrambler?
I think its the only fabric bike made in Denmark, they have some custom companies as Wrenchmonk.. Lauge...

The tyres are the Full Bore Usa, a copy/licence made Shinko? I have had them on for about 4000 km, they behaved as mention in this thread very strange the first 100 kms. Every turn felt a little like falling into the road, but now they fine and simular to the Metzler tourance I woud say.

I will not put another of them on, as they seem to be to slipary on wet roads.

The low exhaust on Teebee's bike is a massmoto 2-1. Check out their site www.massmoto.com,

Had one set off the Mohave on my old Scramb. Sold to a inmate here :-) I love them only 2.9 kg. But the heat shield is thin, and actually a little sharp so they cut up a couple of my jeans. I bring my bike to the tracks from time to time, and the Mohave was over the 94db rule, So I put the arrow back on again. But the look and sound is greater than the Arrow in my opinion.

http://www.happy-trail.com/Departments/Find-Your-Bike/Triumph.aspx

I don't think they've finished up with the Scrambler part of their website, as the pictures are not up yet.

If anyone wants to give them call about their racks, here are some numbers: (800) 444-8770 or (208)377-8771. They are in Boise, ID (USA) and there from 10-5 MT.

Whoever gets a set of these for their Scrambler, let us know how they were to fit up.

I would also like to see an integrated rear luggage rack/top box, like Metal Mule.

I agree for alf. A friend of mine has it. OK for the pilot. For the pillion I don't no if it's better. And, for my gust, I don't think it fits very good the old school look of the scram.

Thanks for that info. They do look great though. And if I end up with a Scrambler, I will just have to get a set.

When I noticed something is wrong with the engine, there had already been more than liter fuel on the engine, exhaust, electrics and on my leg. It took me a second or so to realize that I have to disconnect the fuel pump (kill switch) to stop the stream coming. I was really lucky the engine was too hot and the fuel evaporated and has not caught fire. And luckily I donīt ride w/out tools (I have H-D toll box installed) so I was able to find the cause, repair it and to continue my trip. It was worth it.
There are rocks ...




... with monasteries on them ...



... and there are forgotten WWI built roads...



Thatīs why I like working in the Balkans, for it provides reasonable amounts of exotics

Wicked love the countryside there, one day maybe. The bike looks in its element there

Who cares just ride and enjoy
