new ride

As the saga of getting my 05 speedmaster back on the road seems never ending, and with most of the riding season here in the north gone. I could not take it any longer so went and got a 2018 street scrambler.

What a hugely fun bike to ride! Back in the day, I had a Honda 350 scrambler and I rode the hell of that bike. This new one is looking to be the same program.

as it was a NOS, I was able to get a pretty sweet deal. It is the 900 cc version with ABS and TCC that can be switched off, throttle by wire and surprisingly good tires (considering that they are Metzlers).

I have only had it a week and it is time for the first service. Which is only worth mentioning because the weather here has been crap, with massive rains and high winds. The riding washed out roads and covered with debris appear to be what this bike was made for. Very fun.

Re: new ride

black on black with a few brushed aluminum bits scattered around.
in addition, I have added a generous portion of mud make it look like a proper scrambler.

Good for you. So you had an old Honda CL350. Now you are showing your age. Glad your knees are allowing you to enjoy a scrambler.

Happy Trails
