    The screen will spoil the way cool look [​IMG]but after a big day in the saddle youll be glad.

    Bicycle shorts help save your arse too.

    How many of you would recommend the Scram for a one bike stable?

    Me! I've owned 40 motorcycles over the years, but the Scrambler is the best, funnest, do-everything-pretty-darn-good bike I have ever had. :D

    Very versatile bike.

    Co-pilot and I are both tall. 2 up-ing would be the only 'single bike' issue for me. Horsepower is a bit light on for that sort of payload.

    If you work solo it's a great all-rounder.

    I don't have superbars on there. I know a screen might spoil the look, but I gotta have something if I'm gonna ride 300-400 mi a day. I think a Givi A604 might be the ticket. My bars are 35" wide. I think superbars are 29" or so.
    On the video there at the Salton Sea, I'm using TORs.

    Tackled the hardest track on tour today. Porika track between the Mangles Valley and St Anaud.
    Wet Steep Slippery clay base, with heaps of exposed rocks, and wash outs.
    It was an challenge for both bike and rider, but both survived unscathed.
    Wee Stroms, big Beemers etc have come to greif on this track often.(even DR650s can struggle. But the Scrambler pushed through. Being able to get both feet down quickly, and the lovely torquey engine made the differance. (plus the Ohlins kit).
    Any bike jouno who slagged this bike out as a pretender, can take a flying jump into another career, as they obviously havn't the skills or knowledge to commentate accurately.
    Danger Dave preaches the truth. Preach brother. Preach.:gerg

    It's a motorcycle park in the hills just south of San Jose, CA. It's rained a lot recently so some of the trails weren't in the best of conditions, but the Scrambler handled itself admirably. :wink:

    I wouldn't take it on some of the steeper and narrower advanced trails, though that's mostly due to my skill level.

    Indeed not - really 5 kilos? A few more bits like that and it'd be down to a nice weight :thumb

    I'm contemplating replacing the Africa Twin with either a Bonnie or a Scrambler (amongst other bikes) in 2009, so am reading this thread especially with interest :D
