    Hi

    I want to get a 350 or 400 scrambler but one that has rear foot pegs and indicators. Any suggestions?

    I like the XR400 but it doesn't seem to have these.

    Cheers

    You won't get a scrambler of any sort with rear footpegs, though some enduro bikes have indicators. It sounds like what you're after is more along the lines of a trail bike - which is a road bike with off-road capabilities. The one that comes to mind is Suzuki's DRZ400. There's plenty around, they're a bit tall and heavy for serious dirt use but that's the penalty you pay for road friendliness. Prices range from about 1200 to 3000. Obviously the more you pay the better bike you'll get.

    Don't you love it when you answer a question and the OP doesn't even bother to come back.

    Hmmm... was too busy ragging the 250 today to care. Checked the boot, toolbox and storage bin and have found that I have no fucks to give.

    As Tomcat pointed out, true scramblers are purely for offroad purposes so lights/indicators are not factory fitted,
    & maybe in the UK to turn one into a street type bike will cost about a million pounds + tax!

    PS, l had the DRZ when l lived in Vegas, & those little buggers can go to places that you don't have the skill to ride it to!
