Hi all,

FatRob here. I am based in Brisbane, Australia. Hoping to get the Full Throttle but, obviously, haven't seen tin the flesh as yet. Other option is a Monster 821 or 1200.

I do have a short leg problem though, and I'm a bit concerned that that may be an issue.


Currently ride a Harley FatBob.

Look forward to chatting and learning.

Cheers,

FatRob.

G'day Fatrob Welcome.

Sure your legs will not be an issue with the scrambler as I believe the Harley has a wider saddle than the scrambler. There is also a lower saddle option.

Merry Christmas 0:)

Welcome to the forum! Has your leg been a problem with other bikes that you have had before? Hopefully everything will be fine for you.

Cheers!
My leg length, or lack of it, excludes a lot of bikes. I'd really like to buy an 'adventure' style bike but can't find any that I can reach comfortably on.

In the past I did have a Ducati S4 (916 Monster) and had to have that lowered by an inch or so - and even then I was on the limit of comfort. Had I stopped anywhere where there had been an adverse camber on the road then I would have been over.

So I am hoping that the Scrambler, with the lower seat, will be the answer and fill a space in the garage.

The new Monsters go down to 745mm with the extra low seat but because the seat is wide it doesn't really help as much as you'd imagine as it splays your legs out. My wife has a 26 inch inseam and the Scrambler was perfect as it's very narrow.

That's good to know. My inseam is 29 inch so I should be fine. :D

I have a 29" inside leg but can manage my 1200 Multi without difficulty, although I do have to be careful. I found the height a bit daunting initially but quickly got used to it. I have a low seat option but, like said above, it effectively makes the seat wider so not much gain. The 31" seat height of the Scrambler will be a joy.

Hi FatRob, I'm also in Brisbane and just got the best Xmas present ever when my wife gave me a letter from Brisbane Motorcycles in a box stating she ordered an Urban Enduro for me!

I also come from a Harley background - last bike was a 2012 Street Bob with lots of mods, sold in May this year as I hadnt been using it much since becoming a dad.

The letter from Brisbane Motorcycles says there will be a VIP launch night main January of the scramblers, no firm delivery date yet but hopefully soon after!

This is also my first post here as I had been doing some research on the bike from seeing it in magazines earlier this year but now that I got one on the way I'm very keen to find out all about it! Can't wait for after-market exhausts too... Hopefully Akrapovic and / or Remus makes some as the Termis are expensive and have an ugly logo on it!

That's interesting. I'll have to keep an eye out for the local launch as I've not been able to see anything on the dealer sites so far.

Hey FatRob and Feli.
I am in Brisbane as well, and I have the full throttle on order, apparently the first one to come into Brisbane motorcycles will be mine (just sick of waiting, I ordered it in October).
Guess I'll see you guys at the launch party - maybe.
I'm not expecting the full throttle to be in country until late March at best, most likely April which does suck, but what can you do :(
I'll just keep blapping around on my WR 250 until the FT comes in.

See you in the streets.

Welcome Feli,

Nice Christmas for you, love your wife.

I like you want to change the exhaust for a Akrapovic. Please email them as some of us have already expressing your interest for your Scrambler.

Link Akrapovi?

Happy new year
