Hi Just joined, greetings from Germany. I currently have a 04 Speedmaster but just about to trade it in for a 06 Scrambler because of an injury and the riding posistion on Speedie causes a great dea of butt ache. Can any one give any pointer what to watch out for on a second hand scrambler:confused:. Many thanks:)

Check for rust on the inside if the wheel spoke well. I realise it is pretty hard to check, but have a look at your next tyre change
They are pretty bullet proof as is the speedmaster
Good luck & enjoy , they are a lot of fun

Congrats on the new bike, all I can think to check is the right hand side cover... check if its held on tight, as I've heard of a few of these coming off! I'm on an America myself but am VERY tempted by the scram, so a little envious lol.

If it has many miles on it and still has the Trailwing tires, get rid of those and go for some Avon Distanzias or the Metzeler Tourances. Note I don't think there is any question on whether to buy the bike or not. Get it!
