Think the Scrambler can handle this ride? I am starting to think ahead to my retirement and want to do a cross country ride. The Trans American Trail is at the top of my list but I am not sure the Scrambler is suited for the many different surfaces the trail has.

Anyone ridden it and have any idea about it?

I forgot about that! I had a dream to do that ride before and since its all road grade the scrambler would be perfect. I have a red Icon on order and may look to doing this in a year or two. You need to check the site for warnings as sometimes the route has temporary closures or detours. Keep us posted

Small sections of it? Sure. End to End? No way in ****. Fuel tank is too small, not enough ground clearance underneath, etc. Some of the trail is just straight fire trail, but there's water crossings and other sections are off road to almost rock climbing in a 4x4.

If I was going to do the TAT, I'd probably get a Suzuki DR650 and put a big Clarke tank on it for fuel storage. I'd want a simple bike that can take a beating and drive through water. My former TW200 would do it, but it'd take forever because it's a slow moving vehicle once you hit highway. But I'd want an air cooled, single cylinder bike I could fix with bailing wire and bubble gum.
