I'll keep this short, a few years ago I sold my 1996 blue/green VN800 Classic. It was the best ride I ever had, but wanted to try some other bikes. (A week after selling it the new owner had it stripped, chopped, bobbed, and rattle can painted. Not kidding. I cried.) Since, I have owned a 1994 VN1500, 2006 Triumph Rocket III, 1965 Honda Dream, and 2016 Indian Scout. All great bikes.

Saturday, I just bought another 1996 blue/green VN800 Classic w/18K miles. I can't wait to bring her back to glory, but am out of town at my daughter's until after Christmas. (I had to have it delivered to her garage. LOL.) When I get home, I'll be selling the Indian, and this 800 will be my new ride for years to come, should have never sold my first one, but at least I went full circle--I'm back home now. LOL

There is nothing like a pull knob 'choke', finely tuned carb, perfectly set valves, great exhaust notes, and the yellow glow of a single headlight on a dark, country road. Yep.

A little rough, but here she is:

What didn't you like about the Indian, The Scout Bobber is on my short list for a new bike in 2018, not selling the Vulcan, just looking for an additional bike. Haven't ridden one yet.

So I've been told. Not sure how to post pics now.

Scout rocks! Plenty of speed; plenty of torque plus a real head turner to boot. Gorgeous bike, I have the glossy black. For short trips it's awesome. Long trips . . . just not feasible with the small gas tank (3.2 I think). I'm selling because I will not be riding it much. I have the 800 now and it's just $$ sitting in the garage. You will love it!
