OMG... I was told by my 14 and 15 year old that I need to "divorce the scout"! Since I got my scout... I'm shucking my duties! I sneak out to ride...I'm not making my bed, leaving my dishes, not up on laundry...and apparently starving my children... Ok these allegations may be partly true...Hahaha. If I'm not on this damn site, I'm riding! Rotten kids ;) my new user name will be.. NoChoreNat25

Love the new name..... I have always said, the most welcome time in a parents life is when the kids can make themseves a sandwich and go to the bathroom without assistance.
Ride on Nattie!!!

14 or 15 seems like the age that my kids started looking at me as something more than just a dad.
It was a motorcycle that drove it home for them too.
Brings a smile, thanks.

I know what you mean, my wife says I'm cheating on her by riding the Scout too much. I bought it so she can ride it, but I never get off it so she can ride it. She always goes with me when we ride so I have to take the Ultra when we go out. Not nearly as much fun. She says she's going to buy her own Scout but we don't have the room for it. Good thing winter's coming and things will grind to a halt. No more jealous arguments, until spring.

That's funny, my hubby says if he wasn't 6'4 he's love to take it too!

Part of riding is to get away from it all. Enjoying life without a care...then home back to the grind:(

I can relate. I used to get a lot more work done around the house before the Indian. All my other bikes were good but this sucker just calls you to ride!

The Scout just screams, ride me!!!!!! One time I went to Smiths to get butter and OJ, but it was such a beautiful day here in LasVegas, that I rode to the Hoover Dam and back for a nice morning/afternoon ride and lunch. Good thing my backpack was waterproof because the butter was melted and the heat from the scout turned my OJ into pruno. lol

The most welcome time for parents is when the kids finish their studies, get a job and move to their own place...Before this, they'd always find a good reason to make their parents feel guilty if their parents don't invest 100% of their time in them :D

I really miss my Scout. I haven't had an opportunity to ride it since I sent it to Alabama for parts development last March. :( Daryl said we'll be ready to transport it to Tucson, AZ for fenders and exhaust in December.

Sound to me you have a life outside your family constraints, stay safe and always use protection.. rider protection..

Just joined the forum and am super excited to read how super excited you all are about your Scouts. I thought I was unique . . . ha!
Once you set it up to your riding style, it's even better..
