Re: Steering Geometry

I felt the bike had more of a tendency to weave with the stock set up than when I changed to a 17" front wheel and 2" more height on the rear shocks. But then again, I also changed the handlebars for lower ones which probably did more to make the bike stable at speed than anything I did to...

Re: Hello

Got the bike !!! Yes i love it, only managed a couple of rides out but well impressed with it. Only thing i can see that i would benefit from is some wider handle bars. 8-) Bars is a good place to start.... beware the addiction begins.. enjoy and make it your own. Whereabouts are you??? There shoul...

Re: 2019 Triumph Scrambler

As you read in a lot of the bike press, it's all about a 'lifestyle' now, look at places like the Bike shed in London and to a point, JemSpeed in Batley. Do you really go to a bike shop because you want a tattoo or a haircut? I understand a cafe, as that is part of biker culture, but riding a 'desi...

Some great design details and features being showcased on this new line up of vehicles. Very interesting interview highlighting quite a few po...

Re: Livewire linup

Can anyone enlighten me as to why the 'engine' is so massive looking? Looks out of proportion to the bike as a whole. I have read very little about the bike.
