    Sounds like a Groucho if I ever heard one.

    I'm penciled in for a Ducati Scrambler 1100 and/or Desert Sled test ride tomorrow morning or afternoon, really looking forward to it, even though they probably won't let me jump it or wheelie it. I highly doubt I'll ever actually drop the cash on one of these, especially if Indian does the FTR1200 right (I'm still optimistic), but they do look like a LOAD of fun and I do want to know how it compares to the FTR1200 in terms of performance when I finally get to test one next year.

    Holding out to see the specs on the FTR. We have an 800 in the shop, and I've been riding and loving it. We had great luck with Ducatis, so the 1100 is a possibility, or maybe a used 800 and upgrade the shocks and get a larger front wheel.

    Not for my old bones, but I paid more for my Roadmaster than I ever paid for a car (cheap SOB, always let someone else take the 30% signature depreciation). For 90% of us, motorcycles are an emotional interest, and emotional purchase. Bean-counter tendencies (nothing personal there) generally don't hold sway when the fever strikes.

    I did the same, @PileOParts . Although, my wife just surpassed me on the new car dept. Paid more for her new Audi TT than we did for our house!

    Can relate to this .. Paid More for my Chieftain Dark Horse than did this like new 2016 GMC Terrain SLT but the 2018's had come out, and let the original owner take the hit on the Depreciation .. Only had 28,000 Miles and Looks and Runs New after having almost 4 months and close to 5,000 Miles Later ..

    The price may be a bit better to swallow if the bike has top line controls, suspension and tires from the factory. I'd much rather avoid buying a bike and then have to spend extra money for decent suspension and tires...which has been my experience on the 2 Scouts I've purchased in the past.

    OMG!, Jesus, Joseph, Peter, Paul, and Mary!!!!! WTH???? You paid More for her new "hot rod" than your house!??? You must really "LOVE" that woman of yours!!! Shit! Hellfire and brimstone, personally me coming from a long line of; "cheap assed", "tight-wads", I have NEVER in my life spent more money for a motorcycle than I did for the first 5 cars that I had ever owned!!! Until, I bought my Indian "Roadmaster", which retailed for 32k, but my workmates all say that I finally; "Jewed" one of the Indian Dealerships in Atlanta, down to 26K and some pocket change out the door... That's still more than I had been willing to pay for a Harley Davidson "EGUC"... No offense intended, if anybody is "Jewish" on here! I myself discovered some distant "Jewish descendancy" in my family woodpile about three years ago... :);)o_O:oops::rolleyes::p:p:p:p

    I'd rather see a cheaper, stripped model and put on my own shocks, tires and suspension, maybe wheels. Give me an awesome engine, fool-proof electrics, minimal electronics, trellis frames, no plastic. I can fix the rest.

    Big question for me would be brakes. A standard Brembo two-pot upfront would be ideal.

    I'm pressed Meg you do know "your way" around motorcycles quite handsomely, if I say so myself... Not! that a woman couldn't, but most don't... You however, "good lady" are a diamond shining in sea of dark indifference, these days! I must say, am smitten-low by your savvy "motorcycle prowess" you've obviously slain the egotistical ignorance of many a foolish man with your refreshing brilliance of mind!!!... Rave-On! WOW!!! :eek::oops::rolleyes:o_O:);):cool::p:p:p

    Exactly what happened with me. I was prepared to deal on a Diamond Blue 17 RM when I was able to do it and then Indian came out with the RM Elite and the first time I saw a picture I said to myself...Oh my Gosh I have to have that! Honestly it's only the second bike I have ever seen that gave me that feeling.

    Hellz Yeah!!! Rock-On, Brother! I got that "Motorcycle Fever or Flu" too and I just had to have me an Indian "Roadmaster" or "die-mad" as well... Two looks, one-ride, and I'm hooked on her, I'd be willing to move "Heaven and Earth" just to have her in my life!... Regrets!? Absolutely None! So far... :eek:o_O:);):p:p:p

    This.

    If the target is younger then @Meggie FULLY captures what I think is the needed M.O..
    Kids don't have cash and want cool. Strip it down and make it run faster than goose shit slides through a tin horn. Make it sound like Thor's hammer slamming into the Earth, and make it look like an all American middle finger to convention and subtelty.

    Make the "Zero F#cks Given", sticker a free upgrade.
