Today I did a back to back test ride of the Chief Dark Horse Bobber and the Scout Bobber and Scout. My opinions: The Chief was incredibly powerful and did not feel that much larger than the Scout. The Chief throttle was very sensitive and the bike would lurch at the slightes increase in throttle. The Scout was much smoother and linear and instilled more confidence. The Scout handled better than the Chief although the ergonomics of the Chief were excellent, better than the Scout Bobber because of the higher handlebars and the seat. The forward controls on both felt about the same. Although the Chief has more power, the Scouts have more than enough get up and go to satisfy me. At the end of the day, putting price aside, I would choose the Scout for my ride. Stay safe.
