PM'd you a question.
That is one cool looking bike.
Damn... I think I want one.......
Where did this picture come from? Notice it has the pipes split to each side!! Not the Scrambler tail light or paint????
Right click the picture, look at the properties and go backwards from there.
I hope you can read German.
is there a motorcycle in the picture?
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 ?
How do you guys like the massive tool kit it comes with?
I think this is what you meant to say.
I got's me one.
But cha didn't ask my why?
I asked you if you were related to Matthew Cohen, of Auckland.
Read his post then reread the quoted area....
Yes - I should have said 'how do you know jnr?'
PM'd you again. Let me know if you don't get it.
New test over at Soup http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2006/Jun/060613-triumph-test.htm
So what I get from that review is Looks good - But that's it - Looks good.
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.
Hey Scrambler Owners,
What is your real world gas mileage?
Look at my pictures, read what I said.
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.
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.
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.
I would buy one and I would ride it off road. Cool looking bike (And girl ). But........ I really like my GS and cannot afford two bikes.
