    The pictures of the bike that was actually used in MI3 showed it had the pipes split to both sides. I would like to have a set, just cause!

    When you moving to the A T L ?

    So what I get from that review is Looks good - But that's it - Looks good.

    [SIZE=-1]

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]

    That last paragraph tells me it's a beauty queen that looks good on road and that's where it needs to stay.

    No doubt I LOVE the look of the bike, and that it's air cooled and it's not Jap. But still the reviews all say it's bland - it does not perform in or around dirt.

    I want one in the worst way - but not being made of money, I can ill afford to buy a bike I'll be disappointed with 6 months in to ownership.

    *sigh*

    It would probably smoke my 883 on dirt roads...but that ain't gonna stop me from riding my Sporty off of the pavement...

    I think it's a kewl bike.

    If I didn't feel the need for saddlebags or passengers, my Sportster would be wearing a pair of Supertrapp high pipes very similar to the pipes on the Scrambler.

    Being practical and only being able to have one bike sucks. :cry

    My View,
    It sounds like in all the reviews they are expecting the Scrambler to be a dirt bike when taken off-road. But to compair such a bike to a CR250R or your standard Honda XR, is it fair? This bike does not have the suspension nor the ultra knobby tire's that your standard dirt bike has. It's a retro bike, comparing it to an R1 for on street performance and handling and than a CR250R Dirt bike for off-road, doesn't seem fair. It's like if they started building the P-51 Mustangs again and than compare it to the New F-22 Fighter jets, and complain that it doesn't go faster than the speed of sound and that it doesn't carry as many weapons. :nono

    It's a reissue of older technology from a different time period, it has it's flaw and it might not be the best performer, but still has the spirt and fun of the older motorcycles. :gyro



    I would buy one and I would ride it off road. Cool looking bike (And girl :evil :sweeti ). But........ I really like my GS and cannot afford two bikes.
