    • Then today I took a 2020 Indian Chieftain for skids. They have gone to 116 cube as standard.

      Really high-tech piece of kit now.

    • I don’t love the look of all the plastic, but the engine and those wheels. 😛 I stopped by the local Indian store and couldn’t stop staring at the Scouts.

    • The Scouts are a really good fun bike - very low and long with an upright riding position and it kind-of 'disappears' under you. It's just you and your body out in it - which is my personal preference. The 100hp unit especially, I can't come up with better words to describe it than 'a real skidder'.

      I'm not a fan of its looks. It's too modern and angular for retro styling to my eye. I much preferred the Victory Octane treatment which embraced the tech better.

      This thing was a weapon too.

    • So I took the Rocket III R back to the dealership and was talking with their Sales crew. I've been friendly with the Sales Manager for a while now. He used to be at the Harley shop I get the Press bikes from and is keen for more Social Media content - so he's happy to lend me shop bikes. I've already had their Scrambler out for a few Days and I'm going to grab what I think is the equal-best looking bike on the market today, The Bonneville T120 next. (Do you still want my job?)

      As I walking out one of the Sales asked me, "when I was putting a deposit down on the Rocket?"

      Right beside the side exit door is a Matte Black Tiger 1050 with free luggage.

      I pointed at it and said, "If I was buying a new motorcycle today it would be that one."

      Best 'do it all' road bike on the market:
