The bike will hang out with all manner of dualies from KTM's, DR's KLR's, and Two Strokers, and only be stopped by trails that you require a true trail bike for. (and they can't carry anywhere near the luggage that the Scrambler can.

But it main strength, is to carry a rider over a varying surfaces for many days, in all sorts of weather while said rider never tires of its lazy n honest "Thump Thump Thump". Wash it down, polish some chrome and go to town.

I'll chuck in some scenery shots. But to be honest, it's all been photograghed before, and by much better snappers than me. Suffice to say, if you get the chance, ride New Zealand. Both Islands the diversity of my home country still blows me away.

The lakes can be moody but magical too.

Two weeks, five thousand kms, and the Trumpy purred all day every day.
I guess you could say that it's a pretty good pack mule.

Anybody know where to get the kind of rack that Tri Boy has on his Scrambler, the one on page 52? I need something like that for my upcoming California trip & I don't have a solo seat. I haven't heard back from him. Thanks.

I don't know what his is, but I use a Verntura rack and it is great (prolly what he has, as it is made yonder on the other side of the world). You can easily interchange short and tall back racks to suit the duffle you are carrying or buy their luggage. They are of very high quality and have held up well.
