We head to Dookie again and then on to Violet town on what feels like a road made with random bricks buried under the surface. You know, just for sh!ts n giggles.
My documents are now all signed and John is going to try to get the bike ready for me before Saturday in the hope that i can collect it then.
I own an Indian. Bronze Smoke Scout Bobber, Bassani pipes, Mini Apes, Pillion setup with small sissy bar and a tail tidy.
Wow... What a weekend.
The wife insists that this bike chose me, and it was always supposed to happen.
I tend to agree.
Im a happy man.
Nice write up. I've ridden that Dookie road when I had my Scout, and it must be the worst road in Victoria. I thought it might be the town's retaliation for giving it such a silly name. (Says the guy who lives in Woodrising.) 🙂 I had the 1920 solo saddle on the Scout and found it better than the stock seat (not everyone does), but it's an expensive option. I used an Airhawk when touring but still found the Scout's short travel suspension gave me a pounding, especially on roads like that one into Dookie. For a while I was thinking about getting a sprung saddle, which allows a bit more 'bounce'. The mini-apes were a good fit for me, and held my hands just a little below elbow height when I was riding. They look higher when viewed from the front than they felt when riding. And I love that bronze smoke. My 2016 Scout was the original red, but when they brought out the bronze smoke I was wishing for the time machine to come pick me up. 🙂
