One Of Each Maybe?

With the RGS staying and the CVORG out of reach......and many a research article read and vid watched......I came across this..........and just might have to see what the local shop will give me for the CB1100 and ride this home - They are kicking ass in Flat Track right now and secretly......I have always wanted one - Riding up to see them on the CB at lunch time today - If this happens, @BH#103 , we need to take the "little bikes" out for a beating

A good looking bike Eddie.

Do you have local Indian dealerships around your area?

Let us know what you think once you ride one.

Very cool bike, would be the right size for someone vertically challenged. With my 6'2" it feels like a mini bike. They need this style on the Chief.

There is one within 40 mins and another about an hour away - We'll see if the back can take the riding position

Looks like a blast to ride, I can see you on one. John Shope from (sinister) Dirty Bird Concepts races them

They had been getting a ton of great press lately and are CLEANING UP in Flat Track right now - They caught HD sleeping with the new Street Rod 750 platform and that is GREAT for the sport

I love the Bobber styles, had a HD 48 (See my Album of past loves and dirty sluts) and loved it but it needed a 6th gear and bigger tank - The Triumph Bobber is cool too but the Scout just struck me when I saw it

Has a real cool nostalgic look, interested to hear you thoughts on a test ride.

Is it just me or does it have very little ground clearance?

It is low (Slammed) but with the pegs moved up, it is actually better than previous Scout Models

Already found V&H Cans for $500 on Revzilla as I am sure it sounds like a sewing machine all corked up

Mmm. Didn't know they upgraded the front suspension to cartridge forks. Still think it needs another rotor up front due to the speeds it can get to quickly. Please post a full ride report if they let you fully see what it's capabilities are.

True Bobbers did not even have front brakes - HD & Triumph are both Single Disc as well and this thing has the most HP out of the bunch - The Trumpet has more FPT by <5 but the Scout has some 20+ more HP.
