As I stated in my salutation thread when I joined, my Scout 60 is the first Indian I’ve owned.

You name a bike brand, I’ve more than likely owned it, or at least ridden it.

The one thing I’ve noticed about the Indian is it doesn’t turn very sharp.

I, like many others I'm sure, find the Scout to be quite nimble and easy to throw into twisties. However, it doesn't have as small a turning radius as expected. I haven't found it to be a problem, but yeah....it is a thing.

What year is it? If 2016 or below, the fork swing angle was inhibited some what. There is an old thread or two on here where somebody showed how he ground down the frame contact points to help address that.

Indian made it swing wider back and forth from 2017 on. I ride a 2016, my wife a 2017. On my bike, some of the exercises in the Basic Rider Course II were pretty damn challenging.

It’s a ‘19. It’s not an issue or anything, just an observation. I notice it more on decreasing radius curves than anywhere.
