After owning several crotch rockets I decided it was time to slow down and enjoy the scenery a little. So I decided to sell off the CBR929RR and get a 2001 Indian Scout. I know a lot of people wont think this is the greatest bike ever, but I like it.. :) Maybe I will see you guys out on the Northern California roads / festivals...

Nice bike! Indian is the other classic American cruiser. The competition between them and Harley in the early days is legendary. Look for a big comeback by Indian in 07.

hey thanks guys.. A couple of my MoCo riding buddies have made some remarks about not getting a harley and how the Indian's gonna be nothing but problems, etc. etc... Whatever, they like Chevies and I like Mopars too LOL, I just have to be different.. It's got an 88" S&S Evo motor on it and it rides nicer than my pals night train. I couldn't pass up on the deal on this bike. I will make the ignition relay mod to address the one well known problem with them starting and from there I will make further custom mods, like upside down forks, some different bars / mirrors / headlight etc. :) Then when the motor starts getting tired I will do some work there and get the HP up around 100-105 RWHP. This is gonna be fun.


Yo Maduro, I got her in Gilroy. Maybe I'll see you on one of the runs. I plan on going to Hollister, Redwood Run, and Pinecrest.

See you on the road!

Congrats Sublime, great looking scoot. I was real happy when Indian came back, and very sorry it didn't make it. I understand the name was purchased and Indians may be seen again. Good Luck, ride it and enjoy it!
