Yes. Probably just the left side. I've got Jesse's on my GS, both sides, but on the Scrambler I'm not sure I want to cover those beautiful pipes.

I'm looking for a simple soft pannier/satchel bag for the LH side (with a frame). Can't seem to find much in the UK.

Didn't know that included a frame - but it does. Thanks. http://www.triumphinstructions.com/P...9528024-EN.pdf

edit: well I was interested right up until I discovered the price. 205 (each side).

By the way, I should have asked what make those are and where you got them. Very nice looking.

Thanks bross!

I have no idea why the pictures didnt embed. Stoopid compootahs!

Yes this is it, finally,the Scrambler Bash Plate MkII.

4mm alloy, held on with four countersunk bolts. Rubber mounted. No vibration, resonance or reflected engine noise.

The one in the pictures is still a little rough, but thats the basic unit.

Now that we have the basic template, theres lots of room for tweaking to suit individual tastes.

The top edge lines up with the bottom edge of the radiator. This can be cut shorter, or longer, or an extra 10 or 20mm added to create a "lip" if desired.

The "wings" can be made wider or narrower.

It can be mounted with the Triumph crash bars, or the bottom cut out left if you dont have them.

Less holes or more holes. Bigger or smaller holes.

Other options include:

- polished to a mirror finish
- epoxy coated
- powder coated
- annodised

Theres a range of colours available with these options. Prices for these options are still TBA as I have a few workshops to speak with as well as checking on the quality of the work.

The fabricator I'm dealing with has a enough 4mm plate to do a run of ten straight up. For this batch he will do them for $400.00AUD each including GST.

I havent yet checked with Australia Post on shipping costs, but I cant see this being much.

Please PM me if you're up for one.

Bashplate

Really nice work. It looks great. Unfortunately not in my budget right now. I am going to try to fabricate something when the weather warms up here. It will be ugly as hell, but cheap.....like me.

Hah! I took the Scrambler out today for a quick 90 miler around the valley and up in the mountains,slides fine on smooth gravel/dirt roads and seems drawn to the dirt for some reason. It will take a while to get used to the thumbs ups and waving people seem to do when they see this thing coming.
Its a nice bike for just cruising but gets up and goes good enough when a little rpm is used.
I think this is gonna be a good one! I do like being closer to the ground riding in the gravel and dirt,feels like a much lower center of gravity then the Wee. Centerstand and tank bag are on the way,should be trip ready soon.

Hee! Hee! I see what you guys mean about this thing being a grin a minute!
