Maybe jumping ship and moving to a triumph scrambler

Going to look at a 08 scrambler on Monday, thinking about buying it and selling my wee. Can't keep both. Never riding it yet hopefully soon. Love the style of the bike.

Got a pic of it? I've never heard of a Triumph Scrambler.

I love the scrambler, have always wanted one as a 2nd or 3rd bike.

Nice looking bike, and sounds cool (270 degree crank). Not as practical for commuting, or touring as the Wee is though.

That is always the issue i have with other bikes. They are great at something, but not great at everything. The Strom has most things covered. Cruisers are not great at touring, but tons of fun for short hauls. Dirt bikes are fantastic on trails, but suck on roads. Touring bikes are great on the road, but can't go offroad.

I can't afford multiple bikes, so I stick with my VStrom.

Dave,

I like the bike a whole lot too, and the 270 degree crank makes for a nice sound. I just find the Strom more practical (plus it's mine and paid for), but it sure doesn't look as nice as the Triumph. You can ride the Triumph as-is, but with a bit (or a lot) of extra work, it really starts to work a lot better.

Wasn't meant to be

We'll guess it wasn't meant to be. The guy sold the scrambler before I got there. The wee suits me fine anyway. Going to buy something for her.
