Finally a Scout
So after 3 and a bit years of ownership I sold my 2015 Roadmaster (Strawberry and Cream Two Tone) 🙂
There is no doubt that this was a great machine, but like version 1.0 of anything she had her issues and I think it was the right time to move her on.
Selling privately wasn't easy, in fact it was more of less impossible, so after a few months of almost no bites on gumtree, bike sales and facebook, I took the hit and handed her back to the dealership. I still have Indian #69 of 111, but the Roadmaster has a new home.
She has been replaced by a BMW GS, which is now my commuter bike, filling the role of the RM. Lighter, more efficient, just as much luggage capacity, but about 5 times easier to get through the Perth city traffic, and I can complete my 400km commute without filling up, which is lovely 🙂
Depreciation was huge, despite having fitted the cams, filter, pipes etc. Surely this is something to watch out for....
The process of selling back to the dealer hurt more than I an anticipated, and even when she was on the showroom floor I was getting messages asking me about the bike 🙂
I'm not going to hide the fact that the Perth dealer really didn't do the new owner any favours with this bike.
Anyway, its been a while, but after a long period of recovering from various unpleasant things, I am happy to be back on this forum... (Hello Dear Melbourne Friends with whom we spent a marvellous few days a couple of years ago)
