Take the T100 out next, could be really, really dangerous (I presume you mean to your finances)

Chrome spokes to clean.....I don't think so!  Finances are safe for now!

Street twins don't have spokes as I recall. One of the main reasons I chose one

They’re a faff to clean but ‘ACF50’ the thing all over (not the brakes!!) and off you go! 

 

Anyone tried the scrambler? There’s a new 1200 coming out.... :hyper:

I had a go on the (current) Street Scrambler. The 900cc one. Loads of fun! As soon as it barks into life you feel like Steve McQueen :D 

 

I eventually bought the T100 because, well, it looks like the bikes I grew up with. And then I promptly modernised it with alloy wheels.. ;)

I saw the street scrambler in the Triumph showroom and loved the look of it....cracking looking machine...the only downside was it had a kind of alcantara/suede saddle and that would have been a non starter for me in the good old wet west of Scotland. ...I can't help wondering if they did a waterproof saddle as an option...to be fair I should have asked at the time.

You could go really retro and have a home made plastic waterproof cover for the seat😀😀

Or bin the seat and fit a nice, sprung saddle.. :) 

 

The CB1100RS has a, sort of, suede seat. It wouldn’t put me off, but I (mostly) avoid rain if I can.

Yes that would work but the alcantara saddle is a work of art👍

Very good choice, I just had a blast on my t100, new screen which saves my neck and makes it even more comfy, if that’s at all possible. 

 

Alloys sound interesting....

I was all set to buy the scrambler before settling on the Street Twin. It looked awesome from the side...... And then I saw the other side, the side with the pipes.
