A couple of weeks back I flew to Sydney to take part in a ride hosted by Ducati Australia called the ‘Sydney Scramble’. The ride brought a few good people from the online motorcycle community together for 2 days of fun on the current 803cc Scrambler range. We weaved our way a few hours north of Sydney into the NSW hills and even tackled a 60km stretch of dusty unsealed road to see how well the standard Scrambler and the long-legged Desert Sled handled it.
Unfortunately, because of the off-road leg of the Sydney Scramble, the one bike I really wanted to test out didn’t make the cut, the Scrambler Café Racer. Thankfully Ducati picked up on this and when I returned home they arrange one for me to test ride.
