I agree. I think they are missing the boat in that regard but the Scout is a very good option for the height challenged. I can't even test ride a Scout though as it just doesn't fit. Knees nearly hit the handlebars. I hope, if they do make a fixed fairing model, that they don't screw that up by making it so my knees hit it like they do with Goldwings. Maybe it might possibly be that in between the Scout and Chief Vintage model though.I wish they would make something in between the Scouts and the Chiefs....or just make a Scout with a bigger gas tank.
