    Grizz. - keeper of the flame.

    You have taken the Scrambler to parts of the world (& track) where people didn't think it should belong, represented, and led from the front of the pack.

    Sometimes I want a Scruxton, other times I want a Thrambler but I have always taken note of what you have achieved and smile when I realise it all started with the same easy to love bike.

    Thanks.

    I'm going to buy a Thruxton soon but keeping the Scrambler, wife does not understand why I want both or worse why I want to keep the XR & XT as well...women just don't get it.

    I told her I might be a bike slut but I'm a 1 women man so be thankfull for what you got !!!

    Don't know if the Thruxton will bring as many smiles to the dial as the Scrambler but looking at it will

I havent been able to get a screwdriver under them to pop them out and before i get really medieval on my one day old bike, thought i'd ask you lot what the trick was? :ear

    I picked up a Trailex aluminum kayak trailer today. The hitch is on order for the Scrambler. Does anyone know what trailer light harness, if any, will work with the Scrambler electrics? The one I had on the sporty was plug and play, is there a similar one for the Scrambler?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Got to put on the new Works black tracker shocks, and finally the rain stopped, so I got to ride my Scram today.

    Put her on a dirt trail, and moved the back end around a little to get a feel for her. She's a squirly little girl in the wet mud, but showed her stuff fine.

    Now she's dirty , so I have to clean her..

    D:feelgood

    I've been thinking about pulling a kayak trailer for a few years now, never got beyond the "thinking" stage. You may have pushed me over the edge, thanks!! :clap

    Who did you order the hitch from?
    PLEASE.... post some pictures when you get it all together.

    Regards, Paul

    I'm in the process of scrambling my Thrux. Was thinking about buying a Scram but decided I wanted the Thrux 360 degree motor (with it's 10 more HP), the aluminum wheels, bigger front brake, and speedo/tach setup. I had an 05 Bonnie and like my 06 Thrux better, but I'm really more of an upright dual-sport guy. All the chrome will be gone, it will be a desert tan and matte black themed military looking unit. I've assembled most all of the parts required: dual sport tires (my choice - Shinko 705's), top triple clamp conversion for standard bars, high bars, Scram footpeg mounts w/brake stuff, Scram headlight and mounts, Scram exhaust, Scram side panels, Triumph single seat w/rack, fork gaiters, military desert tan paint... Should be about a month to finish, I'll post pics.

    Current Thrux:

    The gentleman who did up this bike, and just sold it over at Triumph Rat did one of the best color schemes to date, IMO.
    This bike is rich in texture.
    Bravo. :evil

    Boy that sounds creepy.
    I am thinking of buying some gear and need a USA address to ship to. The cross boarder shipping and duty put a pair of Chase Harper bags from $179.00 up to $260.00.
    PM me if you think you can help. I live in Owen Sound Ontario and Detroit is not a bad drive for me.
    If anyone has other ideas I am open.
    Thanks Jim

    Grizz and Satcen, you seem to have the same tail bag (2nd picture here) which fit perfectly on the rack of the Scrambler, would you care to tell me the brand/model ?

    About the 1st pic here, I thought there was a rather small weight limit on the rack of the Scrambler (7 or 11 pounds IIRC according to the manual), so what's the deal with all those bags Grizz, did you reinforce the rack to fit all those bags ?? :evil

    Cheers,

    Fred

    The tailbag is from Wolfman Luggage, it's the Peak model. Take a look here:

    ...and the $27,000 Metisse Street Scrambler, which will also come in a variety with real suspension as described in the article:

    "A modernized Desert Rally model will follow, featuring long-travel suspension and a monoshock rear end."
