little did I know that yesterday, the day I bought the Scout..is the 50 Anniversary of "Burt" Munro's under-1,000 cc world record, at Bonneville, August 26 1967. This record still stands; Munro was 68 and was riding a 47-year-old machine when he set his last record. This has nothing to do with my Scout other than he did do it on a highly modified Scout, I just thought that buying an Indian Scout on the exact day, fifty years later was kind of bizarre, I didn't have a clue about the date until the salesman told me

You jest about the smell, but both I and my buddy bought new bikes within the last couple of years (DL650 and FJ09), and we both noticed a smell when the bikes were hot and new. After a few months the smells disappeared, but there was definitely a smell not associated with rubber, exhaust, oil, gasoline, etc.

Imagine taking a Cruiser and mashing it with a Sport Bike, that is the best analogy I can come up with, totally digging it!
