Settle down everyone. I rolled it out of the garage backwards but also keep in mind that the snow was not soft and was almost shear ice so it did not leave a good footprint like some sweet Colorado powder would have.

If you notice in this picture there is some snow clinging to the rear tire to prove it was not dropped out of the back of a truck and yes I did ride it after the photoshoot back into the garage and even did an icey burnout.

Is it even a Scrambler or is it a 650GS dressed up to pose as one?

New to me 06...The fast blue one.

Tomorrow can't come quick enough !!!

I have been following this thread for some time now lusting over the scram, and now I went and did it.
My new ride has only 1,500 klm on it and was part of a guys collection.
Should make a great stable mate to my Ural Gear up, and provide the same kind of ear to ear grins.... Besides, It will be a great excuse to get out the door and go for a ride without the DOG.

Getting old has it's rewards, lol.

So I'm watching one of the silly "Gangland" programs, y'know, the ones with the lunch-money production values that tell thrilling stories about photogenic 1%ers. The subject of this episode was the Pagan's (sic), and having grown up around Philadelphia I enjoyed the shots of the city and the brief coverage of the war with Nicky Scarfo. But the show saved the best for (almost) last. As the voiceover ominously informed us that the Pagan's (sic, again) had begun recruiting again the camera slowly panned across a series of parked bikes--presumably to horrify the viewer with visions of future badassery--coming briefly to rest on the most disturbing vision of all: a 2006 red/white Scrambler. Just like mine!

Naturally, I let out a girlish squeal and recorded the episode to show the wife, who had a good laugh.

So beware, fellow Scrambler owners, you're now 1%ers. Break out the axe handles and crystal! And remember, never talk to the Feds, unless you are a Fed, in which case I guess it's okay.

I bet that sounds just evil. What kind of pipe is that?

I was watching this, I must have turned it off before I saw the badass scrambler. That would have been funny to see. Maybe I should edit my for sale post to include something like " want to be a 1%er?"

Seat bolt

I lost one of my seat bolts last fall and wanted to use the "R" clips like I saw one of you use but couldn't find any small enough, so here's my 10 cent (literally) fix:



cut a groove in the bolt head with a hack saw, ground the dime flat and epoxied it in place. I swear a lot of Scrambler owners must have been KLR owners in a former life.
