I don't own a trike but I recently toured the manufacturing faculty for the "California Sidecar company " in central Virginia.
I was very impressed by the technology of their suspension and drivetrain systems.
I believe they have dealers all over the country.

Know 2 guys that went with California Sidecar. High quality, larger than some (more storage). Both are both very happy theirs.

When my time comes my Scout will somehow have this one for the best of two worlds.
3 wheels and still handles like a two wheel motorcycle.
Tilting Motor Works - High-performance trike kit for your Harley® or Gold Wing
Currently, they do not have a conversion for Indian models. However, I talked with the owner during Sturgis and he stated that his next conversion project is for an Indian. You might want to send an email to them and ask where they are with an Indian conversion unit and which Indian models it will work with.

Yes, sorry I neglected to say that in the post.

This thread subject has been asked many times before and I just forgot to put it in this thread this time, because I always recommend that you try them out until they make one to fit our Scouts..
It is by far the most creative iteration of a three wheel trike setup since the idea first surfaced by HD years ago.
It has all the reasons that you need a three wheel bike in your older years without losing all the things you ride a bike for.
As soon as they make a kit for the Scout I'm getting in line for the conversion.....

Thought the Chieftan and Springfield would make for a better trike due to there front fork rake ( better handling)
