Seems like Crash likes it. My big fault is that I wish you could get the pegs even further back than the short leg peg mounts bring them. Another two inches on top of that, combined with the short reach seat and drag bars, and that would make the Scout VERY comfy for me.

Indian has a lot bigger company building them than they have had in a long time. As long as people buy them, they will stay around.

Polaris isn't going anywhere but up in sales. So Indian is here to stay I think.:wink:

My wife's loving her red Scout she's put about 4000km on it so far!
Only problem so far was a blown rear shock which the dealer fixed pretty quickly.
I like it pretty good too except that it feels too "small" compared to my Raider.

IIRC there isn't enough fuel tankage for discomfort to become an issue. What is that, a three gallon tank? What is it with all these sub-liter/liter+ bikes and tiny tanks these days?

I think it's for looks more than anything else. I've never heard a rider say that they wish they had less range before having to fill up again.

My 250 Rebel holds half a gallon more than a Sportster Forty Eight or 72. Bikes like the Yamaha Bolt and Indian Scout probably have a half gallon advantage over the Rebel tank. The difference is my "tiny tank" works because my Rebel consistently yields over 70mpg. You don't utilize a 250 tank on a liter bike for the same reason you don't slap a Civic tank into a Mack truck. ;)

It does not take long for my hips to cramp up if my feet are too far forward for comfort.

What is your typical fuel economy like for that 2.7g fill up? I only ask as we have plenty of roads out here that go over 100 miles with nothing in between. And I do mean nothing.
