Passed your way on my way to Latrobe for my first Scout test ride. I am riderless at the moment. Just hope not too much snow or ice because I will be ridding.

I rode 3 of the 4 Scouts and a Classic when a Scout was not available (missed the shinny black). I could not get he grin off my face all day. I have been without a bike for a few years, previously I had Honda's a CX 500, CX650 custom and a 750 (750 was piece of crap I gave away). Work kept me tied until now. Except for a few test rides, Harley 1200c low rider Sportster, Street 750, VStar 950, Vulcan 900 Classic and Vulcan 900 Custom I have not ridden in over 3 years.

The Scout felt very comfortable, agile and powerful. I cranked on it and hit 85 before I had to slow down. I don't believe I passed 3rd gear and it was still climing. I ordered mine in mid August. A once over and the test ride dispirsed and conserns and solidified that I made the right decision. I liked the feel of the Classic, its weight did not seem too much for me but I prefered the Scout.

How was the Roadmaster, did you ride 2 up (you did say we)? How did it handle?

Hey folks ... how about starting an official Indian Owners Group? Annapolis does not yet have one (although they do sponsor a Victory rider's group). We could call it "xxxxxxxx Tribe" (fill in the blank for Maryland recognition). Any one in? I'll volunteer to do the legal work for incorporation.

Just bought my new Chieftan from Chesapeake Cycles 2 days ago. Hope to bring her home Monday if the wx cooperates. Home is Solomons, MD. Have been riding for 4 1/2 years.
