I'm 50ish and Scramblii is my second motorbike. My first was a DR650 which I learnt on and then rode for years, mostly for commuting but also the odd long trip.

:-D

While in the hospital I heard that this Scrambler was to finally become a reality. Since I was going to modify the Monster anyway, and the Scrambler ergos are more friendly to my newly reconstructed knee, it was an easy choice to make.
I might take it to my suspension shop anyway, but I'm going to ride it first before I decide.
I'm wondering if I can get a lowering kit for the pegs, or have to make my own?


The marketing campaign is a bit of a turn-off for me

I actually declined delivery of the Urban Enduro when it finally showed up 18 months ago. I didn't like the suspension (or lack of suspension for a "scrambler"), so I got something more dirt capable. 18 months and 3 bikes later, I have a new Desert Sled on the way after seeing and sitting on one at the show in Long Beach last Friday.

I'm 32. This is my 6th bike, second Ducati. I'm going to answer what seems to be the unofficial question of the thread just for fun: Am I a hipster? I'm not really sure. I'm fashionable but I have never really been a trend follower. When it comes to bikes, I've been all over the map. from the dorkiest dad bike (Yamaha FZ1 which actually was given to me by me dad) to IMO one of the coolest modern bikes of all time, a Ducati Sport 1000s. I just love bikes and riding and I'm not really going to make a big deal of my image. I am so into the idea of a basic do-it-all standard bike that I kind of looked past all the wood grain and skateboards and saw the bike for what it is, and here I am.

Oh and one more thing (looks like I can't edit posts). I bought the bike used from a guy in his 70s! He was a returning rider after having bikes as a young man. So there's one more win in the "old guys" column.
