    Sadly after 45 years of riding it is time to hand up the helmet for good. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2012 and being a degenerative disease it has worsened. It effects me so much of the time now even short rides (20 kilometres from home.) I had been doing for the past few months have required my wife to pick up a mate and come rescue me and the Scout.

    I had always loved Indians and I was so excited when Polaris got production underway in 2013. I liked the new range but couldn't justify the purchase knowing my medical prognosis. When the Scout appeared in 2015 I wanted one so much. I hummed and harred for 2 years until I bit the bullet and purchased the 2017 model.

    In hindsight financially it wasn't a wise decision but to counterbalance this it has brought me much joy. A stunning looking motorcycle. A motorcycle I always had to look back at after I had parked it. It will be gone soon but the memories will remain.

    Sometimes your heart rules your head . Its called passion . It is very sad that you are no longer able to ride . Perhaps a trike , is an option , or at the very least , one of your friends may be able to take you for a ride .
