  2. Stopping by really quick to show off the new Quick Release Semi-Rigid Saddlebags for the Indian Scout family

    Indian Scout Sixty
    The lines match the bike and the bags seem pretty sturdy. You have to buy the quick release mounting spools if you don't already have them. I was thinking about the Ends Cuoio bags, but once these came out I decided to get them instead. The exterior is all weather vinyl, which is perfect for...
  3. Scout bobber rear tail lights

  4. Leather Saddle Bag Straps

    Indian Chief Vintage
    Is anyone aware of how to tighten the leather saddle bag straps as there does not appear to be a way to tighten them? Just bought a 2020 Vintage and the bag straps are very loose and flap in the wind. Sort of annoying at this point.
  5. Viking bags with shock cut-out

    Indian Scout
    I recently purchased an installed Viking's XL lamellar shock cut-out saddlebags for my 2020 Scout. I went with the shock cut-out options not to make room for the shocks, but to make room for the belt guard. While I sacrificed a little bit of volume in the bags, the cut-outs allowed me to mount...
