    I HATE those stupid looking seats SO MUCH , I'd probably punch somebody just for having one. I guess it's fortunate I don't associate with hipster doofus's. :lol3

    This used to be a kinda cool picture thread. It's sad that it's just become a place for old fucks to bitch. Do you guys ever consider posting pix of something that you like or something that YOU built? Instead of just nagging about what someone else has

    Not sure if this qualifies as a Scrambler, my 'work in progress' T140.

    Most of us have posted pics, often of what we built, and maybe one day you can live to be an old fuck yourself! :deal

    Has potential. We’ll reserve judgment until we see the pipes and the final set of knobblie tires.

    This will probably surprise y'all but I actually like the fat tires, 180 might be stretching it a little but somehow in front of that boxer engine I think it works. Probably not so much if they weren't knobbies tho
    And being a "whiny old fuck" is a state of mind that I hope I never attain, it has nothing to do with years, just sayin'

    My first thought was "It's a Lego Bike"! With that big front tire, it looks like the Lego motorcycles my son used to play with 15+ years ago.

    You don't think this is where the inspiration is coming from?...

    Maybe for Christmas the moderators can give us a 'DON'T LIKE' button at the bottom right corner of the post. Imagine how many negative comments it would spare us from reading. Funny thing is, I can't ever remember swinging a leg over a motorcycle and not coming away from the experience with a smile, even that 500 Tiger chopper my boss had years ago. If I saw a picture of that bike I'd definitely 'DON'T LIKE' it.

    What defines a scrambler, in your opinion, and what would it take to turn this build into it? Honestly curious, no snark intended :)

    To me I always thought a scrambler was a standard bike converted for offroad use while a the xt is an enduro, so it's basically a street legal dirt bike. All they can do is make it look like a scrambler but it will be a notch above other scramblers offroad. My opinion
