Originally from Ann Arbor yup, father was an M grad, and I grew up about a mile away from the stadium (BigHouse); I didn't get in, had to go to Hopkins instead (lmao). I've been back a few times since my family left in '84, and glad I never stayed, but enjoy the game day atmosphere. Been to quite a few college stadiums actually, and enjoyed each one; UF Florida "The Swamp" is where we left my brother for his college career... that place is also amazing! Never seen that many jorts and daisy dukes in my life... just a riot lol. Also been to UNLV's stadium which is really neat and BYU, and Utah (both fun places).

I remember as a kid (long long time ago), traveling up to Canada... and visiting a theme park; can't remember the name of it. However, what I remember most is how 'clean' Canada was/is! If I could stomach the cold weather I would move up there in a heartbeat, but Vegas spoiled me because it's riding weather year-round; though July and August are brutal... nothing like riding when it's 110 degrees outside and you feel like your shoes are going to melt to the pavement lol.

As far as "black exhaust" goes...order the black heat shields, or just paint it black; someone else on here did Krylon Matte Finish and I think it was darn near a perfect match with the paint that Indian uses; I can picture a whole bunch of Indian employees picking up boxes of Krylon at Home Depot lmao...
Theme park… Wonderland near Toronto or Boblo Island (in Detroit River, across from Amhurstburg)
Boblo closed decades ago. The only ones I can think of.

Daisy dukes. Lmoa
Will look into options for black, next season. Just want to enjoy what’s left of this season

I reached out to Indian two days ago via their webstie, no answer so far.*** I was, not really anymore, sort of blindly hoping that maybe I would be one of the lucky ones and get a bike real quick. It's been a little over a month since I placed the order.

I ordered a SDH, and really struggled with the Black or Grey. I went with Black for two reasons....it seemed the "safe" choice, and secondly, while the grey is REALLY great looking, it wasn't a matte finish. That said, when I see pics of the grey, it makes me wonder. Also, even though I will bag on Indian for only having two color choices, it's probalby a blessing. If they had that maroon, or even the sage brush green (or whatever it's called) for 2022 for the SDH, it would have made the decision even harder.


*** They responded right away, but for some reason went into the JUNK folder.

That’s the answer I got from asking son the Indian website. The dealership tells me that his info still says it is scheduled to ship by June 30. Might have it by august !!!!
Sounds like it will not be delayed again. That's good news!
I'm hoping my bike will be on the same truck. Our dealership's are hours apart.

Coincidently yesterday, at my local Tim Horton, getting coffee, I struck a conversation with a man driving a Chieftain. Told me he had a friend that also ordered a SB in Dec and still waiting.

LMAO... My father grew up in Cleveland, he was a traitor (thankfully) and went to UM, they're driving up from North Carolina for the PSU game this year; they drive straight thru Columbus... pretty sure his license plate says GOBLUE Evil Snicker.
Do it. Break-in on a modern motor's mostly a persistent myth.
+1... Modern tolerances are much MUCH smaller than they used to be. I'd still make sure that you're varying RPMs frequently but a few flicks of the wrist aren't going to damage anything. That being said I wouldn't be going around red-lining it either; bouncing off the limiter isn't good for any engine.

good idea:

Shipping update:
Scout Bobber Ordered mid Dec of 2021
first shipping date was scheduled April 16 to May 31 of 2022
June 2 shipping retuned to "To Be Determined.
June 6, new shipping date June 6 to June 30
Progress moved to "scheduled" early to mid Jan. Don't remember exact date.
Progress has not moved since Jan
Update
order went from scheduled with shipping date June 6 to June 30
to. “Confirmed” with no shipping date 😳

Why did my order progress go backwards?
Some vehicles going through final preparation and inspection are deemed to not be at our high quality standards. Because of this, it is possible your order will be fulfilled by the next available machine.

Mine has said confirmed and only confirmed since December. I am not even sure how accurate that tracker is.

I think it's pretty accurate. Unfortunately, scheduled basically means they have the parts to get started. Confirmed means the order is confirmed and they are waiting to get the bike schedules bikes on parts availability.


Anything Dark horse, blacked out, etc is going to be a long time.
