As a journalist, I love a good lede. This isn’t one. But I love the way this Bike Exif story starts.
LET’S BE HONEST: a lot of custom scramblers are more about the show than the go. They look good, but a trip down a muddy forest track would likely result in a thick stripe of mud on the back of your waxed cotton jacket.
I don’t know that I’d be plowing through the mud on this Buell, but it does look cool.
If I were looking for an alternative bike to throw mud with, I’d go with my first bike – a Honda SL 125.
Normal people just go with a Honda CRF450 or something similar to rip up trails.
