You guys are killing me with this thread! I just bought abrand new Scrambler this fall because it is a better fit for my needs. And while I love it and have no regrets at all, I do still lust after a Thuxton everytime I see or read about one.
Just an FYI, I paid a little over $10,000 OTD for my Scrammy and I'm very happy with my purchase, but I had a few nice extras thrown in.
Congrats to all you guys with the new Thruxtons...
I can't answer your wheel size question, but I can say I find the single floating front brake rotor and caliper to give very good stopping power. As for repainting a new bike, don't start with a Brooklands Green one and ruin it.
Hey guys, couple of quick questions, and I'm "new" to bikes, not having had one for many years before I picked up my Thruxton.
Why is the rear tire/wheel set up usually an inch smaller than the front? What are the dynamics for the bike for this to be the norm?
Also, some of my friends, who all love the Thruxton, do complain about only one disc up front for stopping power. Anyone added another? I do feel, when riding, that I would like a bit more grip to bring me to a quicker stop. This easily done?
Thanks guys, and as much as everyone seems to like the new Brooklands Green, I'm thinking of painting mine some sort of White with some red accents. Just to make it different and "mine". Maybe a brown seat cover; just pondering ideas.
Happy New Year!
