Hey guys - here's a quick update on my work with Daniel Stern to upgrade the lens/reflector ass'y on the Scrammie:

WE'RE SCREWED.

The bulb CAN be upgraded, as has been discussed (the OSRAM Plus 50 70/65 I got from DS works great), but the lens/reflector unit is non-standard and CANNOT be replaced with anything he can find.

If anyone comes up with something, please post it.

Scrambler

My Blue & white 06 Scrambler was delivered today, looks sweet as & so clean it looked like new.
In fact most of the guys at work thought it was new.

Big thumbs up to BETTER BIKES Sydney & Bikes only for transporting it quickly & safely.

Putting rego on tomorrow then comes the 1st ride

Welcome to the Scrambled Riders group.

Some form of mass dementia here and we've all succumbed... Congrats on your new Scrambler - ride it hard and show us pics - I won't be riding for about three months due to all the white stuff covering the roads...

Regards, Guy

Hey Terry,

Good find, my very biased view is that the colour combo you've bought are the nicest looking Scram' so far!
And I agree with Guy; ride it hard! Unfortunately I got the same problem as him... I've got 4 months before I can ride again..

Went out tonight for the 1st ride (2up), a few things I noticed.

Too quiet, nothing a few $$$ won't fix
Seems very high geared, must check out the countershaft sprocket
Lot of vibs, just not used to it I guess.
Hard to find a nice out of the way spot for the rego disc....done
People just come up & stare at it, then ask how old she is.


Going to put more miles on it over the weekend...but it's such a cool bike, even the wife is looking forward to a few rides...top stuff

Silver engine & blue & white or red & white are just perfect.

Vibes are a worry - mines silky smooth

Suspension is the first sensible spend imo but I understand the desire to make her sound good

All nobbed up but with stock suspension, no bash plate - nice other bits tho.

Obviously more focussed on the look than practicalities.

Okay, I'm pretty much a lurker here, but I've been thinking more and more about a Scrambler. They seem to be available at good prices here compared to the Bonnie/T100 and I know from experience just how cool it is to ride a Triumph (previous bike was an '01 T-Bird.)

But one thing that had got me worried was the lack of storage capacity on the Scrambler due to the pipes on the right side.

So I gotta ask: What kind of brackets are those? They look like they're for hard bags - are they Givi or some other brand?

The ability to pack hard bags would pretty much eliminate the only thing I don't like about the Scrambler. Here in CO the ability to ride on dirt roads is a big + in my book. Not looking for anything hard core, I have a 4x4 truck for that, just something I can zip down a fire road or forest service road without having to worry about it being too much of a pig.

Anyway, can anyone share any other info on their built-up Scramblers? I'd love to see more!

PS:

Sorry guys for this small portuguese talk
Olá Eduardo

Thanks for your pics far better than mine I saw this bike in 2006 (or was it 2007?) at ExpoClássico in Porto but at that time didn't had camera. The bike is stunning but has said in here, more looks than usefullness. Nevertheless is something usefull better than a good looking one Been expecting to find one of the guys from Pep's Gang to ask them...

Obrigado pela menção na tua mensagem mas realmente onde eu a coloquei não teve grande atenção. Ainda bem que aqui o pessoal gostou Por acaso não fazes parte dos Nomad's?

Abraço and cheers to the rest of you non portuguese speaking guys

Dave made those racks himself and yes they're the envy of all the rest of us Scrambler owners. Search the thread and you'll find more info on them and a few other options. Oh and welcome.

I whole-heartedly agree! One of you creative/skilled/fabricator types should come up with some mounting point extensions to raise this fender about 3-4" above the tire. Then we could buy a Bonneville fender and your mounting kit to have a super protective, mud-dogging, fender for our Scrams!

Capuett, come visit. We have the best roads in Canada and lots of room.

Bross, I showed the pic of your garage full of bikes to my wife; she just kinda rolled her eyes. I think maybe she thinks you're a bad influence.
