Thruxton!!! Lucky boy. I have been ogling the Triumph brochures and trying to excite my partner about a next purchase (where she gets to use the Scrambler and me the Triumph...not sure its working). Haven't figured out where the 10 grand will come from either...
Well done. Good luck with the sale and have fun with the new one.
A picture would be nice.....

Budget shrink is an awful thing to suffer, however theres nothing wrong with a used T100, the Triumph Scrambler is well worth a try as well. The parts accessories are relatively cheap especially as there's a thriving second hand market. Having owned the Triumph Scrambler my choice would still be the Ducati as its lighter, faster and has better brakes. A brace of Ducati Scramblers would be good.

Not keen on the Triumph Scrambler. Never liked the high pipe. I am in a nostalgic mood so a Bonneville is my current draw. Looking at an 865 that is slightly chopped. I like the 'lazy' ride, unstressed mechanics and easy to work on. Having said that, PCP possibilities wont leave me alone and the thought of Monsters and Speed Triples keep me awake.......Last nights epiphany involved a 939 SuperSport. God help me.

He is testing you, stay strong sister!
Oh, by the way, to the original Post.
The Thruxton looks mint in red!

Thanks guys Iv'e put the Thruxton away for winter so needed a bike for work on winter nights and salty roads unfortunately BR1 I can't agree with you about the Scrambler I've sold it on as it was the worse bike I have ever owned with it's harsh suspension ars aching seat that gave my bum and fingers pins and needles to an engine that had to be kept in the rev range like a 2 stroke it wasn't for me, where a Triumph scrambler will cruise all day at 50 in top the Scrambler will not it has to be driven in a gear lower.
