    Hello I have owned my Scout since January an like so many others done the usual mods,2into1 Bassini,ss intake, dynojet ,mini apes, rebuilt seat ,k-teck buillit shocks rear,tracker cartridges front( Indian originals cannot be rebuilt and are just so under sprung ) carrier backrest,tour seat,rocky mountain floorboards, Indian bags, also just got some aero mach floorboards cheap which I am going to modify to to fit as passenger floor boards.last thing to do is to get it wrapped in military tungsten green with aged indian logo. Winter here now so riding days a bit limited but being nz pretty much ride all year round. Cheers.

    Welcome to the forum Putamayo, good to have another Kiwi around here. Sounds like you got right into the mods. I like the sound of the military green wrap, looking forward to photos once it's done.

    Hello and Welcome from another Kiwi. Murray (Muz) here down in Stratford, Taranaki. You asked me about my seat on Trade me the other day. Seems like you have that Scout of yours sorted out. This is a great wee forum with some awesome members and some informative and great general discussion. I have just started up Indian Scout Aftermarket Parts New Zealand on a facebook page. Pop on and have a look and like please. That goes for you others as well, haha. Enjoy.

    Heh thanks everyone for your repiles.
    Had an opportunity in 2008 to send my bike to USA spent 7 weeks touring all over rode 17500kms .Starting in San fran then on to Reno, Salt lake, Yellowstone on to rapid city for Sturgis,Sioux falls,down through Omaha to Kansas city,on to Springfield over to Memphis through to Nashville then to Salem heading back up Washington,Philly, then onto buffalo, Niagara then across to Flint then up and around Lake Michigan and down to Milwaukee Stay there for 10days then it was time to wander back to San fran went down to Chicago, St Louis, back through Springfield,on to Oklahoma,Albuquerque,Santa fee,Durango to grand canyon, from there on to Vegas, death valley then to Yosemite and onto Monterey back up the coast to the same motel we left 7 weeks before.
    There were 14 bikes and 1 trike shipped from NZ and we all stayed together until Sturgis at which time split into smaller groups an went on different journeys. the amazing thing was we all turned up back at the motel on the same day all within 4 hours. As you probably guess it was for the Harley 105th celebrations. so yep it was cool trip, could write pages of the things we saw and did.
    Cost for shipping insurances,accommodation, food, fuel spending flights and everything else $110000 nz dollars.

    Welcome to the forum.

    That sounds like one hell of a trip. I am glad you were able to return home safe.
