How can you prepare for a test of the Scrambler giving old Steve McQueen a On any Sunday, The great escape… “I for myself and I answer to nobody” said. Scrambler 900 is all about a lazy sun-drenched surfin’ lifestyle.

The Bonnie Scra mbler right straight away. I can feel the salty warm sea air through my hair through my helmet. But I’m not in California; I’m in old foggy

So how come I get this calming I’m on my way to the beach to do a bit of off-road riding and the surfers? It’s because I’m with the Scrambler. The big parallel does nothing but thumping out torque below me and the handlebars are as wide as I like it.

Stress relief is all it’s and the Scrambler is damn good at it. looking at the sturdy tubular with some rust on the VIN and the two stretched high mounted pipes in the morning to watching the between the handlebars in the evening. wakey, who am I fooling? I’m in the moistest north of the rain-forest and its cold as

Still the Scrambler does sort of thing to you-simply the escape.

Triumph Scrambler 900 is the follow up to 2004’s Thruxton Compared to Thruxton the Scrambler is docile and laid back. not as much horsepower on tap and the riding is much more relaxed. The height is low, slightly too low for me the seat is so soft.

My legs have felt much comfortable if I could just sit higher on the super soft But who cares, I’m Steve McQueen and I can up and eat barbed wire if I wish. The are not as knobbly as the one’s on McQueen’s “278” Enduro bike, but do look the part. They are Trail Wings on spoked and can handle some gravel if be.

But the bike is more a statement anything else. Ride it you like to remember those rather than trying to act out. You are better off with a CRF or something if you like to jump. The is felt immediately when off the tarmac.

The double rear has not got enough travel and you don’t that mud under the nice mudguard anyway. Scrambler 900 best when cruising in the side or commuting to town. For around the country side the 900cc parallel twin you relax much in the same way as on a big The riding position is more and the handlebars tall and wide.

To see if it handled well I rode it as as it would go as well. Top speed is around 110Mph and Scrambler is enough for what it can do. In the bends it is enough to lean it from to right and Scrambler feels stable here too. on really worn down the Scrambler 900 holds its own over other modern classics.

The Wings, stable chassis and bars give good The suspension is on the soft side the front fork feels than the double rear The chromed rear shocks can be for preload and perhaps I would softened it slightly to be in tune the front for my use.

The 865cc parallel twin 54bhp @ 7.000rpm and 69Nm @ rpm. The Thruxton 900 has got both horsepower (15bhp more) and but at higher revs than the 900. The engine is fed with electrically heated carburettors-perfect for ice-cold Californian mornings.

On the all there is to do is to short shift as as possible up to fifth and stay for smooth and pleasant acceleration. You feel like you need to go in a rush and life’s like a box of When you do need to stop the have got a good feel and in conjunction with the rear they feel more up to the job stopping the 205 kilos.

Most of the time riding the I never felt the need to the brakes hard, there is of engine braking and I never fast enough to feel the


J ust the Scrambler design and badge is enough to sell bike. There is not much I can or say that can change that. 900 is a lovely piece of retro machinery. Scrambler 900 made me and I found myself exploring the roads I usually fly past on bikes.

I did not feel completely in with the rear suspension, but I with a pillion on it would been perfect. I can’t any other bike that better introduce a pillion new to to the great experience riding is. is calm and easy, ready to hit the Steve?
