I voted, but ain't gonna tell for which bike.
My First Indian 2018 RM. Still has the Cat. Love it. i see by the poll most ride the RM.
Tell me Mike,.....Just how light is that steering once you're fully loaded up and with a pillion on board?,......seems to me a lot of weight would be above and behind your rear wheel there,.....
Really no issues Alpal. I ran it from Chicago to Cali then NYC back to Chicago. Loaded down me and Mrs Boss lady. 5 changes of clothes apiece in the tourpak leathers oil tools and rain gear in saddlebags. Top bag has helmets only. We ran in rain 70 to 75 mph thru PA it never walked out on me once. That’s a Harley tourpak it’s 35lbs lighter then the indian and a bit bigger holds more.
Most impressive Buddy,......
Thank you My first year on an Indian I am thoroughly impressed with this motorcycle
My relationship with Indian began in 2013 after an incident with my Road king and I needed a lighter bike,......enter a picture of a "RED" Indian Scout on my laptop and I was sold. I'm not the first in the family to have one however. On showing my new bike to my Mum She informed me,....'Yeah, your daddy had one when we were going out together'.,.......seems Dad decided walking or push biking from Fordell to Wanganui was a little too far for a jockey so he bought an Indian,......only had it for about a week by all accounts,......He decided it wasn't for him after he dropped it and couldn't pick it up again!,......He was a jockey after all,......
I rode Triumphs for years, then a couple of years ago, my wife decided that she wanted a bike, too. She shopped around for a while, and finally decided on a Scout. She found a used one in San Antonio that she liked, but instead of driving down there to see it, we decided to stop in at Dream Machines in Austin to see if she even liked the fit of the Scout. That happened to be the day the 2019s hit the showroom floor. They had a brand new one in the same color scheme that they had just put out. I knew I wasn’t looking waving without buying it. Over the course of the next year, I wound up putting more miles on that Scout than she did. I loved the handling and just the overall quality of it. Just over a year after buying her that Scout, I rode my Triumph Rocket III for the last time, back to Dream Machines and rode home on a 2019 Springfield. I couldn’t be happier with that decision.
On Ya Buddy!,.....Bitten by the Indian bug!!!!!
Of all the bugs to catch, that's the best there is.
Welcome to the forum from one Indian convert to another
Probably had over 40 different bikes over the years, mainly sports bikes, until my knees were replaced, then needed feet forward so tried the 60.
Love it so much, bought October 2018,rode down to monte carlo last summer, fantastic bike, love engine, gearbox, got the 1920 seat yet still managed 300 miles a day, hepco becker c bow panniers work really well
It would be interesting to see this poll repeated to look at changing trends?
