    Howdy y'all,

    Picked up the Challenger at Ft. Worth Indian and road home.I highly recommend them if yur in Central Texas or jus looking for a really good dealership!
    Great ride home otherwise then the varying speed for breakin.
    Love the power windshield and the power of motor ( even though held back).
    No TPMS on Standard model, I'm not a big fan of it anyway.
    I did get extended warrant and maintainace. Think the 15000 mile check up is $800.00
    It's not supposed to be washed ( or waxed) for 30 days. Whoops, I have 2 miles of cliche road to my home and I can't let it sit full of white dust .
    So far, so good!!! Great bike! May be able to keep the Chief, time will tell!

    Hey Alpal,

    It is well balanced. It feels heavy but I'm 63 for a few more months. It has a different stance to it. I doubt you'd have a problem. I'm 5'7" if that gives you some sort of idea .

    Soon as I can figure out how to upload a pic, I certainly will .

    Jus turned a little over a 1000 miles.

    Have had a couple of software cliches affecting radio and some of the screens. Had it re-updated and so far, so good. They are working on a software update to correct that issue. Love this bike!

    So far, I have had no software glitches on my Scout...

    ;)

    I took a Challenger out for an hour when they first were released. Great bike.

    I'd like to have the scaled down version if it comes out.

    Very happy for you!

    Photo to upload? That's not a capability in the system I'm familiar with. Route uploads and software updates, but photos isn't a thing I know about.

    sorry for misunderstanding, I posted 2 different threads. This one I am trying to upload pic of bike to post.

    The other post is inregards to transfering data from ride command to the phone app. Which may not be possible with base model. If I posted these 2 together, my error.

    Thanks

    You may need to have your GPS enabled for route data to transfer. But photo support isn't a thing I've heard of anywhere and I've been around a while.

    And you are correct on gps. Many features are only available if you have that enabled.
    Some have to be reprogramned each time you start bike.
