    Scramblers!

    So I was looking getting something for these desert trails that are local and being able to ride urban to get there (kind of silly as AZ pretty much lets you street legal anything) So these "Scramblers" pop up on the radar. What an f'n joke. So Triumph has this new 1200 Scrambler for $15k that weighs 450 lbs dry! fark, might as well put dirt tires on a speed triple. The Duc weighs about 25 lbs less but you have to rev it like a 2 stroke to get it to move. I guess it's off to Starbucks to re think the whole thing.
    Anyone seen my 10 mm wrench?

    Ever since seeing one for sale I while back, I thought it would be pretty cool to pick up a lightly wrecked 675 street triple for 3 grand or so and turn it into a scrambler. Probably not something you'd want to take on anything that's going to put a lot of stress on the chassis though, but it would probably be a hell of a lot more fun on everything else compared to what you can buy oem.

    It popped into my feed about 10 minutes after I read your post.
    It got me moist.

    The Triumph Scrambler 900 motorcycle is the best motorcycle that Triumph ever made.

    No question.
