  1. Touring set up options for Chieftain

    Indian Chieftain
    I just finally got the Chieftain Classic I've been wanting for a year. Now I'm trying to determine the best set-up for touring. I'm coming from a Deluxe that was set up with large custom saddlebags and cavernous tour pak. I'm looking for ideas/examples (pictures please) of what others have...
  2. Transition: Cruiser to Tourer

    Indian Scout
    Hi. I've had my 2018 Scout since last August, but just found this site. I bought the Scout after being hit on the my BMW R1200 RT. Before that was mostly Harleys... the Heritage model because I'm short. After the accident I made a bargain with my wife that I would get a shorter, lighter...
  3. Thoughts and Opinions on the Venerable Chief Vintage: The Best of Both Worlds

    Indian Chief Vintage
    I am coming up on two years of ownership of my 2017 Chief Vintage. I researched the Indian lineup for months and came to the conclusion that this level of bike best represented the brand, both in history and in style. I finally settled on the red and ivory two-tone combination and went down to...
  4. Indian Scout Bobber - what is your longest ride so far?

    Indian Scout
    Hi all, Curious, what is the longest ride you've managed to do on a Scout Bobber so far? Did you do it on a stock or prep'ed it somehow (i.e. custom seat, better shocks, etc). In general, do you think Bobber is adoptable for long distance, or would it be a waste of money and its look to use it...

    Indian Scout Sixty

  6. Touring On Your Scout

    Indian Scout Sixty
    Is any one going on long tours with their Scout? Love to see some pictures you have it set up, where you are going, how it is with two up on a long multi day ride. How you load it up for a long tour? Is your passenger comfortable? I love my Scout....really want to tour with it.

  10. Camping and Touring on the Scout / 60 ... diatribe, I'm bored

    Indian Scout
    Camping on an Indian Scout / Scout 60: If you read the comments about the Scout, you can be struck by the conflicting perceptions of what a Scout is. What is its place in the Universe? Is it a Light Cruiser? Is it a Mid Size Sport shaped like a Cruiser? Is it a Heavyweight first bike? Is it a...

  13. Close-up details on the Springfield plus small Ride Review

    Indian Springfield
    The Springfield has been a very anticipated model here at the dealership. We knew somewhere along the line Indian had to come out with at least an option to put hard bags on a Classic or Vintage style Chief. It was something that people were asking for and we passed that feedback up to the guys...

    Parts for Sale/Wanted
    Sold I bought a used 2015 Vintage in OCT 2015. It came with a Tan Heated Touring Seat. While extremely comfy, I am more of a solo saddle rider. The bike had 600 miles on it when I bought it and the seat was pulled at 1000 miles. The date of the seat part number sticker is "09/14", so I have...
