Scrambled thoughts

I purchased a blue and white scram absolutely loved it . Traded it for a bmw which wasn't that great sold the Beemer bought a sweet Vstrom 650 great right out of the box used perfect bike no complaints. Sold the wee for a great price because everybody wants one excellent resale.the guy who had my scram wasn't using it bought it back because I loved it. The scram is great best looking bike when parked great fun to ride however my wife likes to come riding and 2up on a scrambler requires pricey mods king&queen seat new shocks and metal mule or future happy trails luggage and don't get me started on the headlight.Now I'm back with a Vstrom 1000 in love again with an ugly bike that's wicked fun and in need of some farkles and clutch work aaahhh! What the heck still love it . Wee strom near perfect Scrambler allmost big Vee made need some help but a ton of fun for two.

One handles better, goes faster, gets better mpg, is better off road, has more aftermarket stuff,
has a smoother motor and can be serviced anywhere. The other one is cool looking. You're welcome.

I own the cool looking one. There's no arguing the facts of this post, though.

Had an 06' for nearly 5 years, bought a 12' scrambler and found this out over the course of 8 months. Damn it looks good
