Give us a ride report if you don't mind. I'm trying to do my research on a new ride and its leaning towards a Scrambler as well. Going to test ride one today. Thanks. Bill

Hows it do in the dirt? Go off any sweet jumps with it?

Love it, but I'm just about off the air till the start of the month.

Will dig the Scrambler shots out and see if I can squeeze 'em somewhere.

Since, I also have them I'll host the 1280x pict for you. I'll leave it up there for a while since I'm not hurting on bandwidth with my PB account.

Oooo. Nice update to everything. Looks great.

I gotta get my butt down there one of these days. You Kiwis have some beautiful country. Peter Egan had a great write up of his little adventure down there.

Now I need something cleared up here DD. You've ridden both the blue and the red Scrambler, which one is faster?

Cheers - Well, actually, the red one has Triumph Off Road pipes and they make a bit of difference. ;-)

they added greatly to my enjoyment of the bike - they are pretty loud if you live in the burbs conversely.
the thunderbike.co.nz products are very good too.

I'm waiting on the Thunderbike Reverse Cone Performance System. I'm going to wait for some other people to play guinea pig before I drop that kind of money. I do like the look of it but I'm slightly concerned of the noise.

These pipes solve my issue with the Scrambler. I think the stock pipes (in spite of their nostolgic appeal) look to be about 6-8" too long. Something about them throws off the balance. These pipes look right to me.

Of course...they may also put a lot of heat about where the pillion doesn't want heat...which creates a new, and worse, problem.
