    Really love this bike! Had a little blast around in Surrey last night and rode it into London today. Great all rounder. Fitted a high level front mud guard bracket and some engine bars last week.

    New chain and sprockets. Went for a 46T rear, instead of the 43. Livened it up a bit! Also recently fitted the lay flat clocks bracket, ignition and rectifier relocation, new headlamp brackets and some motone indicators, as the eBay ones were crap!!

    Have you gone any distance on the Scrambler, done any trips, loaded up etc etc? Interested on how you found it.

    No i haven't I'm afraid. just days out with minimal luggage or into London and back (to guildford) a few days a week. Its comfy though but a bit buzzy on the motorway. Definitely suited to the twists and not munching any miles.

    I've got one too and I must confess I bought it more for its looks, than touring ability, took it with me to Cornwall for a week recently, in the back of my van. And then used it for riding round the narrow Cornish lanes, two up with the Mrs, for which it was ideal. Came back plastered in Cornish cow poo though, which reminds me, haven't cleaned it yet. The exhaust restricts having a pannier on the right side, so I'd say it would be restricted to carrying luggage solo, with a bag strapped across the seat.

    There must be a lot of people on here who've used smaller naked bikes for holidays. I did 2 x 2 week holidays - UK to Montgenevre in 2002 on a CD200 Benly and the following year on a naked CB1300, and whilst the Benly was harder work, both were brilliant, to the point that I now wonder how much of a pussy I've become since owning 4 GS's?!

    Used to ride all over Europe on a CB900 then a GPZ 900 before adventure bikes were invented!!

    We used to make waterproof jerkins from bin bags teamed up with council issue waterproof trousers.... those were the days!

    TEC released some all black versions of their shocks, I didn't really like the external reservoir silver ones, but these look great!! So would have been rude not too.
