Hi everyone, I joined the Indian clan back in Jun with the purchase of my Scout. Loving getting out and about, even more so now that the weather in Canberra is starting to warm up. Only a couple of changes to the bike so far, stage 1 slip on exhaust and two-up seat, but about to get the DS suspension upgrade (thanks DS). Further mods to follow. Keen to make contact with any other Indian riders in the Canberra area. Cheers Smiley

Hi Smiley,  welcome to our humble forum.  As the weather improves I suspect that you will get the machine up to the brindabellas for a bit of a squirt.  I have heard that the road to the observatory is the one to take - one day I will get there......

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. DS indicates the suspension kit is in the mail, I will update you all once fitted.
Yes some good riding around the Canberra region including the Cotter (Brindabella run).
Will be in touch Jimbo, I'm just around the corner in Jerra.

Smiley...... I'm out at Googong.  The front Ohlin's spring kit finally arrived so finally have Ohlin's front and rear suspension fitted.  Rides real nice now.  Scrapped the OEM tyres and got Pirelli Phantom's on.  Stage 1's make it sound nice.

Looking at customizing the paint job in the near future, probably 2 tone as I quite like that look.  Fella in Qbn I'm thinking of using, I like the look of his work.  Was going to trade up to a new one but laughed at the trade offer on a 1600Klm old bike.  Cheaper to do it up I reckon.

Sounds like a nice setup. I think I'd be keeping her too, and keep doing her up.

Love the look and sound of your Crushers Thunder Scout, great comparison in the before and after video.

Thanks Smiley, the video doesn't do the sound justice, but I tell you when I took it in for its first service the dealer who sold me the bike came out to see what was running and couldn't believe the sound.
How r u going with the DS Susp??
Have mine on order just getting springs chromed to keep in line with originals?

Waiting on them to arrive. I went with all black to darken it a bit. Will keep you informed once received and installed. Went for a ride today around the Cotter and the roads reinforced the decision to do something about the suspension!
