Default Figured I would try something different.

I almost bought another Raider, but there is just something I don't like about the styling, and they are pigs. So then I looked at the Indians and test rode one. Meh! It had a pan seat, the clutch was kind of tight, and it was notchy shifting, but I still kind of dug it. If it had a normal seat we might have been in business. So that led me to the now defunct Victory line and the Octane. I mean 90 percent of the bike is Indian Scout so part shouldn't be an issue. 4000 off MSRP since they are discontinued I figured I would give it a shot. I just wanted something lighter and more fun with out going full sport bike. The Ducati Diavel almost won out but I like a little something different and these are a tad cheaper to say the least. I have put a few miles on it in the last couple of day and it is a weird feeling. Looks like a retro cruiser but rides like a dual sport. We will see how it does long term but so far it is a fun bike. Needs a tach for sure. I rode my shovel after re-arranging my garage and thought holy hell this thing is terrible. I won't lie a RC-8 almost made the trip also. Cheaper than cars right! Ehh I may have bought another Miata Club also. I am done, finished, no more!

Thanks. After 4 days of searching for the now extinct separate tachometer, I saw a random video online of the actual digital read out having one. Sure enough it had a mode button on the back side of the left grip area. It will be nice to know what RPMs are since it redlines around 8400.

Neither had I until I started researching the Indian Scouts.
