Got out yesterday afternoon for a bit of a ride. Although sunny, it's still not exactly warm here in Central Washington. Lots of fun. Glad I had decent tires, particularly for the soft, wet, unpaved stuff. The twin ran well.

Hello folks,

I just finished reading through >500 pages of posts here. Great to have such a wealth of info and photos about the Scrambler in one place! Currently I have an '09 Tiger 1050 but was looking to add a fun bike for taking round back roads and some trails. I plan on keeping the Tiger but really like the look and sound of the Scrambler. I have an offer on a new matt green one from my local dealer which has just arrived in the shop so I'll go play with it tomorrow (snow permitting). My offer price includes an Arrow 2:1 exhaust and also the single seat, not sure about the seat now - is it any more comfortable than the standard plank? Maybe save the money and just get a rack? There's so many great accessories shown here but I can't buy them all... well, not all at once anyway.

Will post pics if I buy it

Welcome Chris,
Farkle the bike however you think it best suits your style. You can easily mod it further, if your original choices don't totally suit.
Part of the fun of owning a scrambler. Bit like Meccano/Lego. We are are all big kids around here

Congrats on your new bike! We know you're going to buy it. The standard plank may not look that comfortable but it hasn't been a problem for me and can do long days on it quite easily. On a 1200km trip, no soreness or problems with my butt at all.

I have always had the single seat and find it to be very comfortable, so the decision is yours. I guess it boils down to if you want to occasionally have a passenger. Please fill out your profile when you can. Thanks!

10 cents canadian is a little over 9.5 cents U.S. at todays exchange rate. Pretty much the same anymore (only 5% difference).

I'll see if they'll haggle on the price of it before deciding

profile done (sort of)


Snowing again here, that means more salt on the roads

Yes. The plank isn't bad, but it isn't great. The single seat is damn comfy. You probably wouldn't regret getting the single seat.

Good luck with the dealer and good choice in the Scrambler. If I could have a second bike right now it'd be a 1050 Tiger. They would make a great pair of bikes!
