Triumph Scrambler...worth the buy?
« on: October 22, 2013, 07:27:51 pm »
Thinking of buying another bike. I've taken a liking to the Triumph Scrambler,  the classic styling, 865cc engine, off road capability and the matt green does it for me.

Anybody got one and care to comment if it's a good buy?

I appreciate your opinions before commiting.

Don't have one myself, but do ride one sometimes.
Fun bike to ride, nice power and torque.
Fuel tank might be a bit small for long distance touring/adventure riding.
Seating position is good, but standing for myself would need some mods.
Take one for a test ride and decide for yourself then. :thumleft:
