Well that was a very comprehensive review! I particularly agree with your last paragraph, as the Scrambler IS the best bike for me for the riding I do, even if I have replaced the stock suspension (couldn't stand it! ). My last bike (a Moto Guzzi V7) was a lovely looking thing but I put 1695 miles on it in a year. I've put 4200 miles on the Scrambler since April. Nuff said!
