So, I took a shot in the dark and went to my local mom and pop triumph dealer a half hour away from my house thinking if all the big dealers didn't have any Scramblers on the floor, they probably wouldn't either but low and behold they had just got a 2013 matte graphite in. The dealer had 2 phone inquiries on it while I was standing there so with the bleak outlook on used models, I said F it, you only live once so I sealed the deal and just rode her home! I had to take a hot shower to remove the frozen permagrin on my face, literally, it is 30 degrees and raining outside, the pipes kept my right leg warm and I have frostbite on my fingers but well worth it. Anyway, enough with the blabbing and on to the pics! Looking forward to the ensuing madness!!



Congrats I think that color is awesome

Congrats, that really is a very attractive color.

I got to ride mine a little today, and it just always puts a smile in my face. Today was fantastic weather, so the wife wanted to come along. The scrambler is such a versatile machine, can do a little of anything, and always looks good whatever its doing.

Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments guys, after lusting over the khaki green for so long I have to admit that the grey is really growing on me. No regrets whatsoever. The wife on the otherhand isn't too happy that her car has to sit outside now as the two bikes take priority As with all the bikes I've had, the day dreaming about mods and trips is endless. I have the AI removal kit on order and am looking at exhausts, skid plate, light grill etc...planning a trip to New Foundland/Nova Scotia for early summer as well. In the meantime I'm just taking short jaunts around the neighborhood until it warms up a bit. I'll post up pics as the mileage racks up. Let the good times roll!

I'm not a fan of matt paint but that color is growing on me. I have been getting the itch to change my Scrambler's color once again.

All silver is starting to bore me. I am thinking of two tone silver/green or gloss black like this bike:




The girls pleasant to look at too.

Love the matte graphite. I have the same bike. My winter mods begin this weekend. Taking off the heat shields and the back mufflers and having them powder coated in high temp flat black. Also removing the baffles on the mufflers and a nice black skid plate is on order from the local dealer. Gonna be a good couple weeks.

What's the story behind that bike? Looks like it has T100 lower forks (with the attachment points for the fender brackets.)

Only reason I asked is because I have a T100 fender and it would be fun to be able to paint it and put it on the Scram, but with no attachment points for the fender braces, I'd worry about the fender flapping around too much.

I like the matte graphite 2T. I can see a couple of routes with it (at least ).
A 60's style with lots of chrome and anodized/polished theme, or blacking out parts to go with the silver matte. Among others themes...
It will look good either way!
Have fun dressing it up to your own vision.

The Scrambler is so due for something else other than the matte khaki.

I have one on my scrambler without fender brackets and it doesn't flap around at all

Agreed, and with all the positive comments on this thread about the matte graphite, it makes me feel that much better about my decision. The cosmetic upgrades will come but I gotta get that exhaust/airbox opened up. All I can hear is a teasingly muffled version of what this thing needs to sound like. I'm thinking TORs to keep the original look but may go with Arrow depending on what kind of deal I can get.

Well, the sun came out today finally. Still cold but with only 20 miles on the Scram from her maiden voyage, I had to get out for some riding. Cruised some NJ backroads and found some dirt roads that I hadn't been on before:

Quaker cemetary circa 1632:





Cornfield in the middle of nowhere:







Stopped in here to warm up. Awesome apple pie and coffee:



Random reservoir:



All in all a good day, racked up 212 miles total. Just another 300 and I can get my first service and start to romp on it a little more!

Finally got a few extra bits for my Scrambler. Ordered two sets of the2wheels.com levers by accident. Really like the levers but don't need the extra set. I ll do $30 shipped if someone wants the the extra set. Got in a good ride today. Really enjoying this bike. LEVERS ARE SOLD! Thanks!

A few pics of the levers and bike.

Levers look like nice items. Are those pivot pegs on there?
