    throttle lock ...ordered, Now if I can only find out where to get those 'leaf blower' exhaust pipes I'd be a happy man.

    Looks great!

    Is that the mid size screen you've got on there? Thinking about one myself. Does it make a big difference?

    That's the smallest screen. Works great no buffeting but I'm only 5'4". I still do get bugs on my helmet visor though. I wouldn't travel long distances without one but its a personal choice.

    Have you a pic of the tank from the seat to show the width?

    My only real concern is the extra weight on the front rubber tank mounts. It does tend to move around a bit. May have to keep my eye on that.

    Actually I was going to call it an Indian Stout but put on the war bonnet instead. post: 4768, member: 45"]You just gave Indian an idea. Next year, there will be a new model.

    Looks fantastic 'the new Scout Tour model'. When the tank is full does the bike become top heavy or it makes no difference?

    No I don't notice any difference. Just been on a ride over the Snowies and back on the GOC no problems apart from a sore arse. Gotta do something with that seat.
