Thanks Hink, was looking at the anniversary, but for the money, this is more my style, and I LOVE the two tone much more. Although I may put those beach bars on her. Hmmmmm decisions.

Nice color scheme - congratulations. If you go with the beach bars, please post pictures. I hope you get some nice weather to ride in soon.

Somewhat close to my 2019 Icon Ruby Red & Pearl White. I also went with floorboards, luggage rack and Indian saddlebags. I took mine further with exrended reach foot control, mini apes, a National Cycle Switchblade windshield and a Corbin solo seat. Yours looks nice though but I needed more in terms of comfort for my old body.

If I get them, or when, I will surely post some pics. Hopefully on a sunny day riding.

NICE!!! I have pretty much the same trick, but 2017 in cream. I also have the Dart Marlin windscreen and love that too! Nice going!

Got out for a nice ride today. Everyone who says buy a 60 it’s the best value is wrong IMHO. Maybe it’s the floorboards (Indian OEM) and the new shocks, but this is way better riding than my 60 was. Oh ya maybe the Night Dragons too, or all of it. 200K ride and smooth as butter twisters and hwy miles. Looks and performance. Love my scout

You need to ride both.
Five versus Six speeds doesn't become an issue, even with the differences in motor output because most riders truly don't ride all that much at higher speeds (+80 mph) for any length of time.
But the top gear ratios are exactly the same no matter which Scout motor you choose.

No issue with the gears on either. Just the quality of the ride. As mentioned, my old Scout was a 2016 Scout 60, this is a 2020 Scout 69 with updated shocks, tires, brake cylinders and floorboards. I think all of that, NOT the engine or gears made the difference.
