When I visited my local Triumph shop this summer I had expected to be buying a Bonneville T-100, (beautiful motorcycle). However, upon entering the front door of the dealership I was immediately drawn to a blue & white Triumph Scrambler that was sitting in the middle of the room. It was decked out with all the accessories that are offered for that bike in the Triumph catalog. My mind went racing back to my teen years in the mid-sixties, when some of the coolest looking and best riding bikes around were the Triumph & Norton Scramblers. I decided against buying the T-100 (I've previously owned 3 Bonnevilles), because I just had to have the Scrambler, but if finances had allowed, both would've been on the sales ticket. Though I've only put a little more than a thousand miles on the bike, I can tell you that it handles as well and is a little faster than any of the previous Triumph models I have owned dating back to my first one, a 1970 model. The bike is nicely put together, beautifully detailed, and the engine serves the bike's purpose very well. In short, it looks, sounds & rides like the Triumphs I grew up around, only it's a much improved version. The folks at Triumph have done a great job with all the models in their classic line, but to anyone who grew up in the 60's and loved the motorcycles of that era, especially British ones, you owe it to yourself to check out the new Scrambler. That bike will take you back in time. Now if I can just figure out a way to get that T-100 & the Thruxton model too.
