    Hi all,

    Curious if anyone else rides Indian Motorcycles on here. I've been riding a 2015 Scout for 4 years or so, recently took the FTR 1200 for a ride. Thinking about an upgrade to a Chieftain or a Springfield.

    Backstory: I've been riding for 10+ years, and I'm only 23! Started on old Hondas. If you ride anything with 2/3 wheels, old or new, you're cool in my book; just curious to see if anybody else rides Indians on here.

    What brand boots are those? My daughter is not happy with her boots. I think they're fine, as they're the same boots I have, but I guess she wants something a little more stylish.
    This is from her MSF course, and I think the boots look fine :)

    Some parts do interchange easily. I've also got the RCX slip-ons on my scout 60 and love them.

    Bummed that Polaris ditched Victory but I am happy the about 70% of the parts are interchangeable between models....and as for the slip ons, they are mean sounding....I love them too, but I'm sure my neighbors have different opinions. Lol.

    My neighbor has a little poodle type dog that has crapped in my yard for 10 years now. I work nights and come home at 6AM. I don't feel bad at all on Sat and Sun morning if they know when I get home.

    This scene popped into my head when you described your neighbor and their dog...(0:00-0:33sec)

    Hahah.

    Sure! I think my boots aren't even from a motorcycle brand, lol. They are Relativity I believe. I've had them for at least six years, only had to get the zipper replaced on one once. Other than that I love them!

    Hate to admit it, but It's only been about 2 weeks since I've watched that movie. Lot of down time at work and plenty of movies on Amazon Prime from the 80s and 90s.

    its great to see a woman on a bike, i really want to like Indian but i never cared for the fully dressed bikes, the FTR 1200 looks really cool in my opinion...how was the ride on it? any likes or dislikes?

    Here is a good write up on it from a woman's perspective. I'm sure she doesn't speak for all women, but it's nice to see the female perspective.
