LEN'S BIG SUMMER BIKE ADVENTURE GOES AMERICAN
After a couple of glorious weeks riding and showing off on a wicked cool Ducati XDiavel from Tytlers Cycle of DePere, I traded up to the big V-Twin power of an Amercan-made Indian Roadmaster for a few days. This is a bike with plenty of storage (32 gallons) and features (like onboard navigation, 200 watt stereo, Bluetooth connectivity (even between riders on another bike) and all kids of gear that makes for a comfortable commute and an awesome long haul. This particular Roadmaster also benefits from the wizardry of the factory-authorized and trained dyno tuning dudes at Tytlers. They gave it the "stage two" treatment on the intake, exhaust and cam and got lots more horsepower and torque out of her than the way it comes stock (which is already pretty sweet). I like those guys! They can do the same for any V-Twin, no matter the make or model you might have.



After a few days in that saddle, Red at Tytlers asked me to try out an Indian Scout, the more sporty bike of the line. It's totally classic looking with modern twists, especially after the Tytlers custom sorcerers got after it with snazzy chrome wheels and other cool features from Kuryakyn. The Scout's 69 cubic inches puts out a jumping 100 horsepower and its forward peg styling makes it feel like you're flying down the highway. I am having way too much fun.
