    The only time this happened to me was when I changed my clutch lever and it was out of adjustment. The clutch needs to be pulled all the way in or the starter will not kick in.

    Hey Terry,

    To tell you the truth, I really liked the TORS and was quite satisfied with them. I was on a trip and followed a guy with Staintunes and really started liking the sound and decided to give them a try. The Staintunes have more bass IMO and the fit and finish seems to be of higher quality.

    I'm thinking about Arrows mainly for the look.

    Hola Rosa,

    Try the following link. Many Bonnie owners sell their factory shocks cheap. Ask the seller to send it to Brazil using United States Postal Service and the shipping costs will be very reasonable.

    Hey, I've found my first post on this thread.
    It was on 11.28.2010, page 762.
    So the wait time to get my Scram was 1 year and a half.
    The only regret I have is, why waiting so long?

    So I saw Here Comes the Boom the other night (not an Oscar winning film, but harmless) and Kevin James rides a new Triumph Scrambler throughout the entire movie. There were a couple of scenes that seemed a bit like a Triumph commercial - the must have paid big bucks to get that bike in there. Either way, it worked on me --> I've been lusting after a Scram for years. I think my time is coming soon...

    Even in the trailer:

    I will see that movie. The trailer is working!

    Now....I just read somewhere that....the Scrambler was assembled in Thailand!
    TELL ME IT'S NOT TRUE......please. Cause I recently sold my Transalp. And my R80G/SPD.
    Have some serious projects like building a new house and a few other things...I will buying a new bike in 2 years. And I want it to be a Scrambler. But I'm not buying a Thaï bike.

    For the last 20 years, I've been involved in aircraft manufacturing.
    I can tell you there's a difference in quality between an aircraft assembled in China, India, Mexico....and one assembled in the USA, Canada or Europe. But, does that apply to Triumph motorbikes?...
    Maybe I get it all wrong. The beautiful part is: I'm not buying my next bike before 2 years. Got plenty of time to choose a bike that pleases me. But I already like the Scrambler!

    It's a strange world out there. I get a kick my Honda was made in Europe and my Triumph was made in Thailand. :lol3

    Just buy the Scrambler and enjoy. :1drink

    Can anyone tell me who owns a scrambler how they are riding two up? Was at the dealer earlier in the week and love the look of the scrambler and the bonneville. One may be in my future.

    My wife like the Scrambler's seat. And she's hard to satisfied, my last 2 bikes where beemers.
    The Bonnie seat is much harder, my friend has one (T100).

    My mate also has a Scrambler & he changed the seat to a Bonnie as well, providing you & the wife are not large persons (no disrespect) you will be ok on the Scrambler. We are both around 5' 6" & 74kgs so we fit ok.
    Mind you she starts to get a sore bum after an hour, I can ride all day without a problem.

    The Triumph factory in Thailand is a wholly-owned facility of theirs, not a subcontractor or licensee. They have the same quality control standards there that they do in the UK. By all accounts the bikes coming out of their Thai factory are equal to the UK-built ones in every way except their ability to ease the minds of people who think it's impossible to build things well in Asia.

    And yes, the Scrambler and all other Bonneville-based models (ie, the entire Modern Classic line) are assembled in Thailand.

    I bought a Scrambler specifically for 2-up riding- my gf wanted a "flat seat". She likes it, but my last bike was a TE610, so it's not like she's coming from a GoldWing, heh.
