    A veritable bounty of V-Twins.
    A cornucopia of cubic inches!
    A whole buncha bikes.
    A paradise of power.
    A magnificent mirage of machinery.

    Go ahead; you try.

    I stopped at the Indian dealer in Killeen, Tx on my way down to the Iron Indian riders Reunion in Kerrville. They had 5 FTR's. He said they had them about a month and hadn't sold one yet. Had a few lookers but no buyers. I said, "I thought these things were supposed to sell like hotcakes." He answered rather sarcastically and said, "Yeah that's what Indian told us too."

    Give it a little time don't forget at least 1/2 the people ( guessing at number ) won't buy a first year run and after my experience with a First Run Scout with Wimpy Suspension, Kenda Tires, a Seat that Sucked , a Flimsy Kickstand , And Absolutely NO Accessories or Spares Available for it at the time I bought it , Not even an Oil Kit in 15W60.. Even if I was in the Market Dying For One, would wait at least 6 months to hear some reviews of any regrets or drawbacks, before putting my hard earned money down on one .. Sometimes probably should not even post in a Ride that is just Not My Style and have No Interest , just trying to show a little Logic of reasoning why they are not flying right off the floor .. If it matters, Waynesville, NC said He started with 5 and has 1 Left now which I saw .. But that is an area where the FTR would be a total blast, and a Fun Riding Area where it would shine like a Old Triple Plate Baby Chrome Moon Hub Cap with Gloss Black Wheels ..

    I'd like to ride one, but I don't think I'd ever buy one...I can actually think of other things that fit that category as well.

    I was dead set on one. I figured coming from Ducati’s and Indians it was the perfect mix for me. I went back and forth but ultimately felt the Scout was the bike for me. 100 hp, comfort, and absolutely gorgeous lines made it the winner. There are going to be times when I will wish I pulled the trigger on one but I love my Scout.

    40 or so years back I wouldn't have been able to sleep until I had one. Was just thinking a few minutes ago I'm only nine years younger than my dad when he died and we all though he'd lived a very long time. <shudder>

    Best bike I have every owned after my beloved VS800 Intruder. And I openly admit to people that the best thing that happened to me was having a car stop in front of me while on the Highway while on my Road King Classic because, dark cloud it may have been but the silver lining was my wonderful Scout at the end of the rainbow,......

    Well Stated , Just because the FTR is not the machine for me , still Wishing Indian Well and Hope eventually they do sell faster than they can keep them on the Floor .. But not everyone wants this Style of Ride.. Was just a very smart move on Indian's Part to Design and Offer it .. Sounding like a Parrot I know but Give It Time ..
