Just went for a short ride yesterday with some friends who have never ridden in the dirt, so they hopped on the DRs and I lead them on the Scrambler over mostly snow covered and melting snow two track easy trails with a few hills. Boy do the TrailWings suck. I like them on the road and they are fine on packed gravel but they were downright dangerous yesterday. New tires coming over the winter for sure. I now understand the term DeathWings.

Dual petcock setup. This is the main petcock with the breather tube hookup behind it (going to a charcoal canister).

The new Scrambler finally came in:





Wow! What a great bike!

That flat green looks bad-ass. Very military-style. Of course a real military bike wouldn't have chrome, it makes you easy to shoot at.

Looks good.

Yeah, it does have that Army Surplus store look about it. Though it also gives the impression it's very rugged.

For those of you thinking of the headlight upgrade from Daniel Stern -

WAIT!

I ordered stuff from him that we thought would fit, and in DOES NOT FIT. Apparently Triumph uses a weird reflector/lens assembly in the Scrammie, not a standard 5.75"/140mm piece. The bulb he sent me works well - just not the reflector/lens. I'm getting himn some pics and measurements off of my original stuff so we can figure out a solution. I'll keep the group posted. It may turn out the only way to REALLY upgrade is to switch to a 7" Bonneville headlight assemble - that runs into some big bucks from what I can tell.

This is not in ANY way meant to reflect poorly on Daniel Stern. He had no idea the Scram uses strange stuff, and is willing to help find something compatible. Seems like a really solid guy.

Effective lighting

Thanks for the warning gc, I was getting ready to work on that problem. I'll wait to hear about your results.

rous44: That's a fantastic looking bike! I'm very jealous. I wonder how they compare to the blue and white ones. They're probably not quite as fast as blue ones, but faster than red ones. Can't wait to hear what you think of it. Get it dirty! Congratulations.

Has anyone tried upgrading to a higher output bulb? This may only result in more crappy light, but it's more affordable. I found that PIAA makes a 60/55w = 135/125w, 4100K, H4 bulb. For the same power requirement as stock it claims to put out substantially more power.
I was wondering if that's been tried?
