Griz, you need to get some TKC's back on your bike.
...so you can roast some people with knobbies.

Can't wait to see it in street trim again.
And thanks on documenting your build-up. A fine build up it is.

Going to try the hitch idea here.

I just bought a 2006 Triumph Scrambler, and a Hobie Mirage series tandam Kayak, the Outfitter on a Trailex aluminum trailer.

I need a trailer hitch, Does anyone in the world besides the company in Australia make one? That company is out of stock and lost another fabricator to the mines. No joke thats what I was told. Or does anyone have pics of a scrambler with a hitch on it? I need some ideas to either copy and fabricate, or buy one ready made. Thank's Y'all

Yep Joe, it's no joke! Outback Queensland is in the midst of a resources boom and the general deal is you work 14 or 21 12hour days solid and have two weeks off. In the mines pay can range from 2k per week to 3k plus per week if you hold a trade certificate so lots of guys leave their families and head for the big dollars!
Steve from Classic Industries has his factory just down the road from me so if you want I can twist his arm for you. Let me know if you are fair dinkum and I will phone him and put some pressure on for a 'mate in the States'. Grizz

Damn Grizz, sign me up. I'll go work in the mines for that kind of money. by the way, what are they mining for?
Grizz I would appreciate the help with Steve. I would not push but this is very important. Daughter and I already have kayak adventures planned for April, and I do not want to buy a car.

Thanks
Joe

Works shocks came in, Just ordered the Racetech front springs / emulators. Can I get some sort of preload adjustor? like ont he thruxton or do I need it?

Now, If I can only get a fracking VIN # and then my bike, I can then tell my wife. She's starting to wonder what all these MC parts around are.

Good setup, I have the same front/rear.

I believe the Thruxton preload caps are a direct swap, so you can either find some used or just buy some new ones.

Grizz I have really enjoyed following the adventures on trail, road and track of your bike here and in ARR. shows what a versatile bike the Scram can be with the knowhow behind it...looking forward to the next incarnation.

Here is the Scram as it was last weekend although I am fitting the twin clocks up at the moment. The second pic is the new 675R at Queensland raceway which is the reason the Scram has been "retired" from the track. I plan to do an outback ride on the Scrambler sometime soon so will convert it back to its original look for this.

Scrambler or T100

Hi All,

I am debating on either a Scrambler or a T100. I love the look of the Scram but am concerned that the pipes may get uncomfortable in traffic. Has anyone ridden in traffic and had the heat bother them. I dont mind some heat, its a bike. I just dont want to feel like Im burrning up. I have been through a few bikes in the past few years, Harley, Tiger 1050, and a few Vstroms. I just want to get some opinions before I make the decision. Ill tell you that Im lusting bad over the Scrambler. One of the dealers has a Demo 2010 with 1000 miles for a decent price and Im about to jump all over it. I have become minimalistic. I think as its been said before, the Scrambler is less but more!!

I commute 75 miles a day on the Slab. But I also ride the weekends on the back roads.

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Hot nuts

Find any other motorcycle with a low pipe and then slide down to a point were said pipe is right between your legs and you will get the idea of riding a Scrambler. In reality at speed you won't notice the heat, at stoplights or/or stop and go it might get warm. That to me is a small price to pay for riding such a outstanding bike. When i was looking for my next bike I was all set to get a Bonneville and then I test drove a Scrambler and the decision was made. Good luck with your search!
