  • I’m not even in the market for a scout right now. Your video was suggested to me by LTworlds and I wound up watching the whole thing. Your production made me think you had way more subscribers. You put some actual effort into your shots which most LTworldsrs don’t. The shots of the engine with the purple backlighting are 👨🏻‍🍳👌🏻. I hope your channel blows up! Subscribed.

  • I love the looks of the bike and almost bought it, but on a test drive, it felt like I was going to fall right off the back of it because the seat was not substantial enough. I bought a V-Rod instead, and am very happy with it.

  • So the issue with hurting your back over long distances is that something that lessens over time or is it pretty much going to happen if you are traveling over long distances?

  • Kickass video! I agree the quality of the video is awesome. Man you sold me on the bike a long time ago. Your videos made me go buy a white smoke one that i take delivery of in two weeks. Got the combat 2-1 also because of you video. I'm giddy. Same situation. Did a ton of research, pretty much decided on it because it's so badass... when I saw your videos that sealed the deal for me and I literally ran to the dealer and ordered one.

  • Best advice I can give you man, get a Corbin custom saddle seat. Hands down the best upgrade I’ve made and after riding with it I realize why they’re so expensive. They even have an option for heat which I grabbed because the price difference really wasn’t that drastic so I figured why not. Glad I did though, not that it makes a night and day difference in the cold but it’s still a surprisingly shocking feature I’m very happy I went with. That shit gets hot! Haha But yea man, that stock “comfort” seat is garbage (idk how Indian can call it that, they’ve obviously never rode on one for an hour) and you’re right, it looks good, but like you said there’s no support lip to that inspires confidence when you throw your wrist down. In my opinion, the Corbin seat looks so much better than that one and you can tell it’s ten times the quality of the stock seat. It completely changes the comfort on your ride length time aspect as well as the stiffness of the ride. I could only ride 30 minutes before I was in pain on the stock seat, now I can go al day and my back from leaning into the stock bars is the only thing that still gets to me. I think I’ll deal with that one because I’m not sure the reduced reach bars will look that great. Also, if you haven’t already, try unloading your stock springs as much as you can. Doing that paired with the seat has me contemplating whether I want to change my shocks because the ride is so much smother; unless I do go for the Ohlins for the extra lift for a higher lean angle in turns. Oh, and I’ve read that those mid controls aren’t great on this bike. They said it was because when you’re trying to back up, they hit their leg/ankles on them because they’re right in the line of where your normal leg path goes when you do. Just a heads up in case you were thinking about that. But yea man, try the seat alone, then loosening your stock shocks, and maybe even reduce your psi in your tires like 2 psi, if that’s not enough, go with the upgraded shocks. If it is your back that’s killing you, the reduced reach bars might be an answer. But yea, let us know if you make any upgrades that solved any issues for you and what body part was hurting before the upgrade. Would love to hear if you solve the lean on the stock bars with reduced reach and see how they look. Anyway man, bike is looking good and sounds great, the dirtybirds sounds great. Shiny side up brother, ride it like you stole it!

  • Great video and your bike is badass! Consider Mustang seat for your bobber much better comfort and still keeps the look.I sold my bobber to son and what a powerful fun bike.Now I still think of it along with my Challenger. You know I'm thinking mini apes would help with comfort. Again sweet bike I think the Indian bobber is awesome
