Now where was it that John Bloors boys got their inspiration for the Scrambler?

Yo Dave,
Are you going to be on the Whangamomana adv assult June 30?
Looks like the KB crew have booked the pub out.
I,m putting a Metz enduro 3 Sahara on the Scrambler, and probably opening the blocks on the front Trailwing with the tyre groover.
Its looking like a wet mucky ride coming up.
Hopefully the front mudguard mod, and tyres do the business.

Anyone here fabricate a decent looking extension to the front fender so mud/sand/gravel doesn't fly up into the oil cooler and engine? I am trying to come up with something, but haven't stumbled upon the right cut or materials. Thanks!

You could try Bonnie/T100 fenders. They should stay in place even without the stays. Get one, strip the paint, fill the holes with epoxy or leave small bolts in them, have it painted, install! It's also extremely easy to cut down Bonnie fenders if you would feel better with something in between the Scrambler and Bonnie fender lengths.

There's a guy on the Triumph RAT boards who fabricates fender re-locators for the Scrambler, so you could go for a real enduro look if you wanted.

Made one out of a grinding face sheild. Plastic is high impact(to protect eyes), and is very flexible.

I that will be an ideal combo.
The rear trail wing was fine even - the front rolled over the loose stuff somewhat - and there is a LOT of freshly graded surface where you are going - the TKCs big rubber spikes digging into it are much nicer.

Thanks for the heads up re fresh grading Dave.
Had a quick strop yesterday to get the feel of the Conti. Tracked really nice while the tail was "out wide".
No real comment on the Metz, but think it may help braking on gravel a wee bit more than the Bridgestone. Roll on Friday.
Oh, All BLacks by 12 points over the Wallibies. Sat night.
