HI everyone. My name is Rob and I'm from St Louis. I chose my forum name because a guy approached me after picking up my bike and said...that looks like Evil Knievils bike he jumped the fountains on lol. I got a great deal on my SCR950. Big St Charles Motor sports is selling 2017 SCR's for $3999.00. How could I not get one at that price. Looking forward to learning a lot about our bikes here.....

I think you might be one of the first members we have here from the Islands. Should be lots of fun riding it around their and on that point if you can share pictures of it i'm sure most members here would appreciate that, especially for those of us that live well up north where snow happens :(

Actually, his name was EVEL. The bike he attempted to jump the fountains at Ceaser's Palace with was a modified 1967 Triumph T120.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new bike! At $3999, it's a steal and I've seen used bikes go for that much. To see a new SCR950 sell for that is a bit shocking to me.

It sure is and even more of a bonus for someone planning to be a short term owner, come time to sell you won't suffer as much of a loss as most first SCR owners.

Hi
My name is Steve and I'm from the UK and just bought my new SCR950. With the UK weather a scrambler bike is ideal lol. I chose this user name as I've been riding bikes for years and was brought up in the county of Lincolnshire riding mopeds around the fields form the age of 6.

Cool bike, good to hear from you. What kind of mopeds have you owned? Anything pre 1980?

Hi, can't remember the years but one was a Norman Nippy and the other a Mobylette so must have been around 1960'S build? One like it on youtube lol.


Not sure about the Mobylette but know they were both left in a barn and my Dad got them going for us.

Very cool! They are fun and easy to work on.
I recently flipped a 60's Peugeot moped. It had been in a garage for decades. Carb clean and fresh gas was all it took to get her rolling.

The only thing that sucks is when things start to break which is why I hate anything old these days because in the end it take up more time than it should and more than i want. But then again that might be what an "enthusiast" is.

$8699 is the MSRP, but with how long the SCR950 has been available, you'd think they would all be discounted to a certain degree by now. Though we may never see one sell for less than $4k again.

Holiday sales will soon be here so dealers are probably trying to go as low as they can without dipping into super bargain prices, just enough to take business away from the other guy. Often this is a time when people start holding out on purchases in hopes for late Nov to early Dec deal kick off.
