Maiden voyage

Had my first ride tonight...

Like an ocean going cruise ship... in acgood way.

Different to the Corsaro.

17" wheels both ends, so stickier rubber in the future... 120/70 and 180/55.

Nice to be back on a Corsacorte Bialbero.

Go try and buy...

Did a 70 mile ride today.

Compared to the Corsaro the suspension is a bit primitive, although it needs an adjust as still set for a 75 kg rider and as a jockey it is not correct for me...

The nose fairing is more effective than the Corsaro.

The engine pulls better at lower revs. Corsaro has more outright power but the Scrambler is a revelation.

Need a step ladder!

Handling not quite to Corsaro standards, but steers well enough. May the suspension adjust will help.

Pirelli MT60s are good in the dry.

Gelling nicely...

I've always liked Big Trailies (R100 GS, Tiger, not to mention Kanguros), but (reading your other post) range seems to be much too small and as the years have passed, height and weight have become big factors in my choice, I'm sticking to the smaller, lighter models (until the next rush of blood ;-) ).

How you going on with the new scrambler, any low speed fuelling issues. Am looking at having mine remapped but wondering if the issues are down to the newness of the bike. I have around 1500 miles on mine now.

Just had first service. Was ticking over too high, but now at 1400 rpm. Fuelling appears to be ok at low speed, but due to the high idling problem have not been able to tell. Did a commute during the week and it seemed to respond very well. I am leaving mine at present. I should probably report the map version...

The problem I can see is the new, slacker, chain tension causing a few issues, but only from 2k revs.

'Slack chain';

Better than a broken swing arm! Generally, keep the revs above 3,000 and it will be lovely and smooth... If you do pull away gently just progressively open the throttle from tick-over and it should pull fine - well, it does on the GP one or two-up!!

Good riding; we had eight at to-days Corsaro Section meet!

I've had my 2010 bike for about 2 years now and have normally ridden with my Wife behind me on her own bike but because she only passed her test 2 years ago we generally ride quiet sedately and the suspension has always felt harsh on the Scrambler. Last week I did 80 miles riding on my own and was 'pushing on a bit' but with that superb engine singing away I felt the suspension really worked well when being given a good workout.
