I regret to inform you all...

The wife has officially traded in her Yamaha for an Indian Chief. I guess I am partially to blame since I bought a Scout a few weeks back and she's always wanted an Indian too. She loves it and that's all that matters. Admittedly I love it too. I now regret getting the Scout and not the Chief. Live and learn as they say. We still plan on attending the get together this September if that's ok. We'll just be riding a couple of different horses.

We will have at least a couple of Harleys in our group. We don't care what you ride as long as you ride and want to come. Bring your friends with you!

P.S. Indians are fine bikes, hopefully Polaris won't kill this brand like they did to Victory.

If you realized the mistake in the model you bought, maybe you should’ve given her the Scout and YOU buy the new Chief! Those are really sharp bikes, and who cares who makes it.... you’re in 2 wheels and you love riding right? That’s all that matters!
Looking forward to seeing Oscars new ride.
Speaking of which.. hey @nurtaeff what ever happened with Oxana’s bike? Did it get fixed or did you just get her a new one?
A second question if I may... Are Tim & Cat coming again this year? I sure hope so. Great people!

She doesn't like the smaller bikes. She won't even try mine out. Her loss... And yes, we both love to ride!

Scout is a fun bike! I rode a Bobber version in the mountains and it was like riding a bicycle with jet engine lol. I had a blast!

Oxana's bike was fixed and all good, just replaced the tank, handlebars and scuffed turn signal and insurance paid. And we will discuss our trip this year with you, Tim and Cat at our BBQ party!

The Meet and Greet in September is about the people, not the ride. Stay active here as the Vstar brought us together and still can help others with the experience we gained. At least that's the way I see it. Ride often and safe.

Wow! Won’t even try yours? That’s wild!
I hope she doesn’t mock you about hers being bigger!

No, she doens't mock me. She just prefers the bigger bikes. To be honest, I'm looking at trading my Scout for a Chief myself. After riding hers I kicked my self for not buying one.
