I am SO jealous. That IS way cool. A living legend.



I agree totally. I liked the bonnie, but this scrambler is the rat's behind. Too bad there aren't photos from a different angle.

The bad thing about the pipes on the Scrambler is the oil filler on Bonnies is right under there. I'm sure there's some way to get a long funnel in, but it's an awkward spot to put them.

The shifter goes on the right, the chain on the left. Upswept pipes on twins go on the left and on the right on singles. Jeez!!

I remember and good call. When they get big enough racing specs will be defined for their machines. It's always been that way. Don't try to play in someone else's yard.

So you're saying an engine of a given displacement should make the same power no matter how many cylinders it has?

73 hp means you can have fun rowing the gearbox without worrying about being arrested like you would on a literbike. I'd have killed for 73hp when I was 20. You couldn't buy it anywhere. Funny, but in spite of being limited to 50-60hp bikes I never felt deprived.



Ever get paid on the Trophy?

Well at least it's not like the pipes on my Scrambler that have 350 10mm nuts and bolts holding it together, along with more straps and supports than Kate Smith's brassiere.



What are those big lumpy things on the headpipes? Scone heaters?



And I can still buy real trials tyres, why can't Triumph. Feh. Bah. Fooey.

God yes! Imagine owning a Triumph without an easy way to add oil every 100 miles/morning.

Right! The bike delivers 115hp at the rear wheel and 55 fp of torque. What more could one want. As long as it doesn't vibrate your fillings out like the Triumphs of yesteryear then a slimmer, lighter bike is just the ticket.
