Kj7687 I was on the fence about buying one of these. If you search an earlier post of mine a few guys with in the seat experience chimed in as well as provided me with a link or two to some reviews. One review was thorough to beat all hell. It was a southern California ride through the canyons, PCH, Ventura Fwy., etc. I was looking at that bike because the speed limits on U.S. 2 and M-28 (Upper peninsula of Michigan) bumped up to 65 which translates into 70 with 18 wheelers and tourists and I wanted more bike under me than the TW for my coastline rides that the TW lives for. I did not get the bike as I already have too many, but the reviews and guys on this site were a big help. There is more to this bike than an inexpensive way to tell people that you have a BMW (which stands for bring more wallet). Go beyond the snub (I ride a Bonneville with a T in the vin that stands for Thailand so some call it a Thaiumph). Guys will also tell you that a Ducati scrambler is not a Ducati. The Ducati 800 scrambler and the G310GS to me is a hard choice. Yes, I am a Triumph guy. As a matter of pure feel, I found the Ducati more nimble/agile than the Triumph scrambler. Again, I have 3 bikes and I just shop and decide not to buy. That makes more sense.
