    Except that the one on the right has its headers on wrong.

    Welcome to ADVriders.

    Just checked your videos BT, I forgot about the slow speed issues as on the road it not a problem. Don't think I would take a bike like the Scrambler into those areas, I'm too short & small for that.
    I have a few mates with Tigers & they are smooth as silk

    Cheers Terry

    I was thinking about the recent dialogue concerning scramblers off pavement. The weather permitted me a little escape today. Nothing precarious, just some forest and fire roads:

    I think I only said "OUCH" twice today (both times on really big potholes while moving faster than I should've). The twin sound lures me into opening the throttle, but the limited suspension reminds me to slow down and enjoy the sights :D. She's definitely got her limitations, but she always looks so good, and she's a lot of fun in "tame" conditions.


    One more on the blacktop headed back home:

    BT, thanks for the video links. Those are fun to watch. I try to avoid anything too rough, but I have this friend who keeps pulling into gnarly places on our scramblers...

    Have a bunch of parts I pulled off this bike over in the flea market of ADVrider if you're looking... Figured some of you Scrambler folks would want to know about it...

    Nice looking bike you got there. Simple and functional. Bet that Zard is loud.

    I fully agree with this statement. It is my plan as well. Putting really good suspension components on my Scrambler will solve 90% the harhness....likely be as good as my BMW GS in everything big whoops where longer travel is more important... and do this with out having to tip toe around in parking lots, etc on a what too tall bike.

    Thanks. I keep the baffle in on the Zard. It's quite tame until you really open the throttle, then it's just right.

    I just snapped the drive chain on my '06 Scrambler. Yes I will have some sit down time with the manual, but does anyone have any helpful tips regarding sprocket and chain changing protocol for this bike?

    I think this represents the limit of where I'd take a Scrambler, and only if the technical sections were short.

    and this is insanity on a Scrambler

    One does need to keep things in perspective. If I'm going to ride technical stuff off-road I'll choose a different bike for that ride.

    Am I seeing the rear caliper below the swingarm in this picture? I'd think a few of those rocks are gunning for that puppy. I think I'd rather be riding a 250 sized dual sport bike in that stuff - that is, if I even went there in the first place.

    That bike has some serious mods to it including a USD fork and many others, I would add an up and over caliper mount and I would take that bike just about anywhere however...be prepared for an ADVENTURE! Oh wait, is this not the ADV website? POSERS:D

    That's a frame grab from one of the Raise the Dust videos. Those bikes were pretty heavily modded, especially that one. I think the terrain you see in the Raise the Dust video series pretty much represents what I'd plan to ride on a Scrambler except for the snow, forget that. I've ridden in snow like that on other bikes and it's sucks, not much fun at all.

    I've ridden a few rock piles like that "in my yut" on smaller 2-stroke dirt bikes and honestly I don't really care to do rocks much anymore.

    I think the Scambler appeals to a certain age/mentality group in general and I'm fine with that. I'll leave the Erzberg Enduro stuff to others.

    Hi everybody,
    I've searched in the whole (yes.... almost every pages...) thread but I couldn't find a pic of the Scrambler with 21-18 wheels.
    Can anybody provide such a photo?
    thanks very much

    Problem with that theory is that when you set off into an area that you don't know, you don't know what you're going to come across. So for you to use a different bike for those sections you'd have to be carrying it in your panniers.:eek1
    And, of course, it's impossible if you've made a 1000 mile trip to get to where you're riding. As we did in my videos which were filmed in the eastern Pyrenees.
