Enjoyed that little read Bill. Personally I think the bloke (and the bike) talk a lot of sense. Just a pity there wasn’t anymore pics to look at but hey ho, from what I can understand the scram is pretty much a more road biased Himalayan 🤷???. Maybe it’s an age thing, maybe it’s an accident thing, maybe it’s there’s just to many cars on the road thing. I really don’t know but I’m genuinely quite happy nowadays bobbin along at the legal road speeds and I think the scram thing would fit very nicely in to that sector. I for one will definitely be looking more into one shortly.
Thanks for posting 👍
Michael

Great post, Bill and right on the money, in all respects.

hi Bill,good read that ... if i had the pennies i'd think seriously about getting one. one small issue with the blog, he states that RE, unlike other manufacturers actually asked the biking public what they wanted ...
sadly there have been several manufacturers, who, in the past have done exactly that , then gone on to produce their interpretation of what everyone said they wanted ..... and flopped .... yamaha and our srx's are a case in point
lets hope this RE is the exception to the rule
