I put $ down on a 2021 Indian Scott Bobber yesterday. Got to trick it out online and see it in 3-D before going to dealership. Really cool experience. So cool in fact it added a couple grand to my total....

Did a lot of comparisons to Harley as that's what I originally wanted. This level bike is between the 883 and the Soft-tail, but better equipped than the 883 (1133 cc w more HP) and substantially cheaper than the ST. It also comes with a lifetime factory drive-train and 3 year fender to fender warranty plus the extended warranty I added was much less than anything HD offers, with only a $50 deductible after.

The biggest complaint I read on line was with the ECU and throttle control with aftermarket pipes, being very touchy. I added the performance air intake that comes with the Flash updates for any pipes on the bike, they will tweak it to specs when the bike comes in and dealer assured me that will eliminate that problem.



This isn't my bike, but shows everything except the backseat w sissybar I added for Mrs. worksux

LOL! That is pretty damn funny, thanks for the laugh.

BTW - I really like the old Cher and Sonny and Cher stuff. Bummer about Sonny hitting that tree while skiing.

As for the other Indian, I ain't a real motorbike guy but that thing looks nice to me!

Home of Zappa, and Bob Hurricane Hannah, antelope vallley, like CB back in the day - was also an interesting spot. I was dodging road-runners while y'all were catching some of Brevards most awesome old skool waves. Lots of high skool friends were motor heads, since there wasn't much else to do up in the desert in those days. My best friend had a 68 camaro SS with a built up 396. One of the fastest cars in the valley and he loved to prove it. He knew another older moto guy who lived on the side of the foot hills and tells me to come over after school one day - we're gonna go visit. SO -we go to this cool house near the aquaduct , andwe go inside and in his basement ( which was also somehow a garage) was about 10 Indians - mostly old but a few new ones...and 4 or 6 Ariels, all in various stages of repair. I was blown away by the amazing design and craftsmanship of these motorcycles, and as a high skool kid -had never seen anything like it. Kind of like where they restore stuff in the back of a museum. My friend looked at me and says -so yeah... what do ya think of all THIS? I was without speech. I do appreciate your post, worksux!
