I have been able to follow the Indian Demo truck around the Southeast and ride at least 3 different Scouts. I pre-ordered a Scout back in early September and really happy about my decision. I rode different Indians while riding the Scout multiple times at three different dealers. Every one of the Indians I rode were excellent rides for different riders and passengers. Maybe one day I will grow up and add a Chief, but that is "big" as I would ever go. During my last rides I had spent enough time and scraped enough pegs to figure out where things touched down and how far I could push the bike. This thing is a hoot! I was able to flex the bike, drift both wheels and throttle through turns and change lines like no Cruiser I have ever ridden. I had it over 100 mph for short stints and was able to get the front wheel off the ground doing about 30 mph. This is going to be fun! I could pick it apart, but all bikes have short comings. One older gentlemen said to me after test riding a Scout "that thing has a hard seat, I wouldn't buy one". I smiled and said "yeah, everything is relative, coming off sport bikes for 34 years, that Scout feels like a couch to me" To me the Scout is one fun, reasonably fast, good looking, different and uncluttered motorcycle that is easy to go fast and put where you want it. Yes I will change the shocks, handlebar and tires and just maybe front end, but at this point it will make me smile every time I ride it.
