Totally agree Andy. Our Triumph has taken us across North America,Central America, we are now in Humaita Brasil and will be doing the offroad section of the Trans Amazonas starting tomorrow. The bike has been briliant and i will post a report of problems so far in the next month or so. Andy and Maya
Nice to hear from you guys, just to cheer you up it's a glorious day in Dumfries and Galloway today. I'll check your blog out later.
Well here it is, Scrambler performance so far>
20k miles all up wieght about 600kg opps!
fuel consumption between 8km and 14km per litre depending on altitude and speed.
broken rear spokes 10, disc side triumph hub
broken front spokes 10, cagiva elfant front wheel
broken sidecar spokes 2
five rear tyres, varias types sizes depending on what we could find. Best was a 140 80 17 Pirelli scorpion mt 90 that did 5000miles
One front Avon SM 400 19,19000miles
One sidecar tyre
One drive chain
Two gearbox spockets
Brake pads 2xrear 1xfront 1xsidecar
Valve cover now leaking, i can fix this no problem.
Both exhaust brackets fractured and had to be rewelded, on the Transamazonica.
Bear in mind the Scrambler has done only 20k miles but it is working real hard with all that wieght, several thousand miles off road and high altitude to very hot jungle tracks.
Having done similar trips with my R100GS we are having more fun on the Triumph and am delighted so far.
Am now in Paraguay heading south and looking forward to the rest of our trip. Andy and Maya Adventure Sidecar - Home
I'm guessing tyre wise it's easier to take what you can get, but if you end up with a choice I don't think you'll do much better than a Heidenau K60. I've 4000 miles on my M&S rear and there is at least as much again left. The starting tread is about 15mm, so even once squared off it's got plenty to go at.
Taking a ship back from Argentina to UK tomorrow, will be on around 50 thousand kilometers when we arrive home. No mechanical issues with the bonnie not even a valve adjustment.
