Garage Parking Mats-For My Indian Motorcycle

Some Information on Motorcycle Mats

Buying a motorcycle mat for your bike! I mean buying a mat that is beautiful and then putting this mat on the garage floor to park your motorcycle on it. Sounds like wasted money thrown into the wind or is it a great investment in keeping your bike tires off the cold floor? I know that it does not sound like a big deal to get one but when I purchased it for my bike I then knew how much I needed this. Some of the benefits are;

  1. To lay down on the side of the bike and work on it while being off the floor
  2. To add air to the tires and check the wear of each tire
  3. To go through my checks before going riding
  4. To do some detailing after a good wash
  5. And to have the bike sit on a mat off the cold garage floor

These are all great benefits and why I decided to buy the garage parking mat for my motorcycle. I do use it now and wonder how I ever got along without it. I mean, I do use it and the motorcycle looks beautiful sitting on it. Do not think of it as a purchase but more of an investment that will help you and your bike out when it becomes riding season again. You will use it and catch yourself and say what a great looking mat, I am glad I invested in this.

These mats became a reality because most people like myself used card board box pieces to do the job of the mat. We as motorcycle riders love to take care of our motorcycle, since there were no rugs we used cardboard, doing what we had to do to protect our investments and with all the different garage parking mats made by all the many manufacturers there is no reason not to get one.

So many motorcycles and so many mats.

Whats out there now

There are so many types of garage motorcycle mats online right now that I could write a book on it. There are mats made with favorite teams emblems, famous qoutes, car makes/model emblems, the list goes on and motorcycle manufacturers make them with all different materials and/or designs;

  • Mats with your favorite team
  • Mats having a ribbed design made of all rubber
  • Ones having ribbed design with a rug
  • Ones having a ribbed design with no rug
  • Made of rubber with a rug attached to the top with a design
  • Flat gray and black
  • Coin grid lock floor tiles to cover entire garage
  • Ones made for cruisers or sports bikes
  • All different colors
  • Interlocking tile flooring multi-color
  • Mats custom-made for specific motorcycle
  • Manufacturer specific rugs
  • All different prices

As you can see there are different motorcycle rugs and they are all have a different price. Now, to add to the confusion, no one online helps anyone else in finding the best one for you. Well, except me I have to tell you that I recommend this great product because I have bought it myself.

Worth the protection!

All mats are the same?

Well no, there are all different garage parking mats online and you have to ask yourself what is the best one for me. There are all rubber bike mats that sole purpose is to keep the motorcycle off the cold garage floor, then there are mats that are made of rubber and have a rug attached to the top, either plain or with an emblem.

Then there are those mats that are flat black and its sole purpose is to protect the garage floor from any leaks your bike might have. This is important because you do have to figure on the condition of your motorcycle and whether it will leak in the future. If your motorcycle needs special attention then this might be the type of garage floor mat for you.

Whatever it is that you decide to buy, you should consider the following;

  • Quality of the product
  • The durability of the rug
  • The appeal and looks, pleasing to your eyes
  • The price, which should be anywhere from $150 to $250 for a decent one

Shop around because not all motorcycle garage mats are the same or made the same, please do the research and find one that fits your budget and rugged enough for your motorcycle. Indian and Harley make some great motorcycle rugs for the money.

Great looking mat for your Harley.

Why not choose a cheaper mat

Sometimes, in the life of a motorcycle rider we purchase some items that are just as good if not better then some name brands. I still buy if it is durable, high quality and price is good not because of name brand. Name brands are sometimes better but not always and effective marketing makes other people rich not me. I always look at the different products I want to buy before actually buying the one I want. So, when it comes to my motorcycle I also do the same and the purchase of my Indian motorcycle mat was no different. I did my research and narrowed it down to 2 and choose to get the Indian garage mat because it met all 3 of my pre qualifiers. It was durable, it was made of high quality material and it had great price, not to mention awesome eye appeal, all points covered.

Here is my baby, parked in her spot awaiting riding weather

Why choose a custom mat

Why I decided to go with the Indian Motorcycle mat was because it custom-built for Indian motorcycle owners. I happen to own a 2016 Scout Sixty White and she looks breath taking sitting on that mat. It  brings out the bike more and protects the tires from the cold garage concrete of these North Dakota winters. I chose the Logo Bike Mat because it will give me a place to put down my tools when I need to work on her, or when I need to finish off some detailing work after a nice wash. The garage parking mat lets the family know that that is where dad parks his bike, so leave it alone.

Harley the other Great American Motorcycle Company!

My final thoughts and recommendations

My final thoughts on this matter is that you should go with a custom garage motorcycle mat. They can be plain or not but definitely purchase one for you beloved motorcycle because it deserves the best. I recommend you click here for your  Indian Motorcycle or click here for your Harley Motorcycle. I have found one for your Harley or one for your Indian and they both look pretty cool to tell you the truth at a great price.

Pros/Cons: Pro-Protection ECE/DOT certified, Cons-some road noise

Product Specs: See top at features

Guarantee: 1-Year

My Overall Review: 9 out of 10

In Summary, I do love this helmet, it was a great gift. The protection is superb all around the head and the lining is great! The secure clip that hold the helmet in place is fantastic, it clips on under the chin and it is easy to open the helmet up. This is an awesome feature when you stop and have to talk to another fellow rider. The sun visor is also great attention to detail which eliminates switching glasses or visors. My only pet peeve so far is that it is new and breaking in and I know this will soon not be a problem. I recommend this helmet for a beginner or advanced rider who would like the ultimate protection for their head.

Fit Over 50-Ideal Body Weight Update

So I am I 54 years old and am finally down to 249 lbs with 29% Body Fat which puts me in the Obese range for my weight. Now I will concur that I do need to lose some weight but having a BMI of 35 does not make me obese and I will tell you why.

According to my BMI I am 35, which is my Body Mass Index or BMI for Short. And according to the tables I am Obese, yes Obese and they believe this to be true. Are they right?, well the BMI is a measure of size based on the mass and height that applies to men and women. The only problem that I have with BMI is that it does not take into consideration the Body type of the individual which correlates the your frame and bone structure.

So they only take into considerations your height and weight which is fine for getting a trend for the whole of society but not for anyone single individuals. They do not take into account your muscle or your body type.

Body Types

  1. Ectomorph: These are people who are lean and long with problems gaining muscle.
  2. Endomorph: People in this category are big, they have a high body fat percentage, pear shaped and can store fat.
  3. Mesomorph: Muscular and well-built, with high metabolism and responsive muscular cells, they have no problem putting on muscle.

So these are the 3 body types that people fall into all around the world, but people do not  just fall into 1 category, usually they will fall into a combination of all 3. Because we are all different and unique we fall into all 3 by percentages.I am 63% Endomorph, 38% Mesomorph and 0% Ectomorph. A combination of all 3, and depending on how much muscle weight I put on I switch between Endomorph and Mesomorph but will never be Ectomorph.

People all across America go in for their yearly physicals and are told they are obese because their BMI and they need to lose weight immediately. Now as Americans the doctor is correct we do need to lose some weight but to follow the BMI would be ridiculous. Changes have to be made so that people can get a firm handle on how much fat they need to lose. You see, our body weight has skin, fat water, bones, muscles and organs to name a few. When we as people want to lose weight what we need to lose is body fat. And to loose body fat you need to test your actual body fat and use this as your foundation. I  placed the calculations that I use so that I can achieve my goal of 18% Body fat. Please feel free to use this chart to help you achieve your goals and achieve your ideal body weight.

So what is your ideal weight.

My Ideal Body Weight

A. Current Weight:_249 Lbs_

B. Current % Body Fat __29%__

C. Body Fat Weight (249 x .29 = 72.21 Lbs)

D. Lean Body Weight:(72.21 Lbs- 249 Lbs = 176.79 Lbs)

E. Body Fat % Goal:__18%__

F. Body Fat Weight of 18%=(249 Lbs x .18 = 44.82 Lbs)

G. Desired Weight Goal at 18% = ( 176.79 Lbs + 44.82 Lbs =  221.61 Lbs )

H. I Need to lose ( 221.61 Lbs – 249.0 Lbs = 27.39 Lbs )

So this is what it looks like and here is an example for you to try.

A. Current Weight: ____

B. Current % Body Fat: ____

C. Body Fat Weight (A x B = C)

D. Lean Body Weight:(C- A = D)

E. Body Fat % Goal:____

F. Body Fat Weight of 18%=(A x E = F)

G. Desired Weight Goal at 18% = ( D + F =  G)

H. I Need to lose ( G – A = weight needed to lose )

As you can see in order for me to be at 18% Body fat my weight needs to be at 221.61 lbs, so I need to lose 27.39 pounds and I can do this through exercise and nutrition. And remember nutrition is the key to losing the weight. Once you commit, then do it!, you will lose the fat and feel better, I assure you. Below you will find the Percent of body fat for men and women according to the ACSM.

Body Fat Standards for Men and Women
Click Image to Enlarge

According to the ACSM which is the holy grail of fitness, I fall almost at almost poor.  Bad and I need to bring this up or lower my body fat percent to at least 21 percent but my goal is 18%. Now why is this so important, because it is body fat that we all want to lose. It is the true indicator of where you are at and where you need to be. People weigh themselves and look at that number on the scale and say they are fat. This however is not the truth, that number on the scale represents a complete picture of your weight to include the following;

  1. The bones all of them that give you your foundation.
  2. All your muscles
  3. The organs
  4. The skin
  5. Your blood
  6. And your fat

That number on the scale is a combination so stop looking at the scale and stop judging yourself. If?, you want to break free from the vicious cycle of weight gain there are plenty of ways online that will help you achieve this. For me, intermittent fasting and exercise is what works and you can take it from me and create your own blue print for success. Here is what I did to lose weight;

Feel younger and stronger no matter what the age!
Over 50 and still exercising.It is all possible if you believe you can.

Be sure to clear it with a Doctor if you have any health issues

  1. Weigh yourself, and if you like take a picture of yourself, weighing should be done in workout clothes or naked.
  2. Get yourself a  personal body fat test.
  3. Start working out 3-5x a week, do 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes weight training when you workout.
  4. Nutrition, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, protein and cut down on your carbs.
  5. Intermittent fasting-I do 8 hours of eating and 16 of not eating and three 24 hour fasting periods.
  6. I use the solo flex muscle machine for strength training and the nordic track incline trainer for my cardio training.

So what is the take away from all of this?

Well it is 2019 and by this time next year you could be at your ideal weight enjoying everything you wanted to do or be at the same place as you are right now.

You are in charge of you! No one else will do it for you, Your mind moves your body. You control your body and you control what you eat.

Losing weight is not magical, it something you get when you implement a plan of action and it is simple.

The time is now my friend to lose the weight! Get your life back it is yours and you deserve great happiness and you will feel like a new person.

King James Version Bible-A Solid Foundation

The King James Version Bible is my authority in all matters of faith and practice. This is the most accurate and concise word of God. The King James version bible created in 1611 by King James. But what about all the other translations before 1611 and why are they the authority, or why did they not survive until today.

Over 150 years of preparation and then Billions of copies sold worldwide!
The King James before 1611

  • 1450- Printing began with Johannes Gutenberg and his printing press
  • 1535-William Tyndale made the first edition
  • 1535-Coverdale Bible first complete English bible
  • 1537-The Mathews Bible
  • 1539-The Taverner Bible
  • 1539-1541-The large bible called,”The Great Bible”, was put out under Henry the VIII
  • 1560-The Geneva Bible which used by the Lord and it went through 144 revisions and had a good circulation run

Winston Churchill said the King James Version has 760 languages and a 400-year history.

So you can see that there were plenty of publications that occurred before 1611 and there were plenty of English versions but the King James Version of 1611 that God chose to spread his word to the world through ministry and churches.

The first edition of King James Version Bible 1611

Many translations, Why?

There are many translations in the world created in all different periods; this is a short list of the bible versions that you can buy just about anywhere they sell books.

  • NIV
  • NKJV
  • ESV
  • NASB
  • CSB
  • HCSB
  • NIRV
  • NRSV
  • Message
  • Amplified
  • NET
  • NLV
  • REB
  • CJB
  • The Voice
  • CJB
  • Passion Translation
  • Living Bible

But God is not the author of confusion and God said,”Heaven and earth

shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away”, God said this in

Mathew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33, this was so important to our Lord

that he put it in 3 different Gospels in the KJV.

Christ died for all sinners, for all time.

Why is this so important?

Because, when you start taking away the foundation in the Christian faith then you begin having a different Gospel. When!, you start to change the following;

  1. The Deity of Christ
  2.  Jesus Christ is God
  3. The Godhead (the father, the son, and the holy ghost being 1 God)
  4. Salvation by Grace
  5. Start taking away heaven, hell, angels, devils, demons, and holiness

This happens  and its not right, the King James Version Bible is the foundational bible it comes from a strong lineage and it is not corrupt. Why are people not wanting you to buy a KJV bible? They say it is archaic and it is too difficult to follow and you should get another easier translation. Why?

Because if you put any other translation against the KJV it will reveal what the other translations omitted and changed; because, when you water down the Gospel and create confusion your chance of getting into Heaven while using any other translation is slim at best.

But is there scientific proof?

Yes there are many verses in the bible that a line with science, here are just a few;

  • Back when there was no telescope before the 1600s, man could not count the number of stars in the heavens but God knew. JEREMIAH 33:22,”As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David My servant, and the Levites that minister unto me”.
  • What does the Earth rest upon, Nothing?,”JOB 26:7,”He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.”.
  • And the shape of the earth argued about for years and years but written about some 2000 years ago. ISAIAH 40:22,”It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
  • The weather and how we came to know it as the study of meteorology. ECCLESIASTES 6:7,”The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to its circuits.”. (7) All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”.
  • Evaporation and Condensation also mentioned in the bible. JOB 36 27-29,”For He maketh small the drops of water; they pour down rain according to the vapor thereof: (28) Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly. (29) Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of His tabernacle?”.
  • And the blood that runs through all human bodies. LEVITICUS 17:11,”For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”.

So as you can see well before the study of the stars, medicine or the weather, the bible giving us truths for today.
The Bible is not just another book written by men it is a book penned by men through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. There are 66 books in the bible, 39 from the Old testament and 27 from the New Testament about 40 different men penned the words of these books. One Author, God!
Their writing covers a span of 1500 years in the making meaning in the course of 1500 years 40 different men wrote the books of the bible. In all that time, in all those people everyone agreed with everyone else.

When, you have God in control it is difficult to get it wrong.

Remember,  the King James Version is not corrupt nor ever been tamper with. It is Gods word as he intended for you to have, he promised us that his word would be left for us:     KING JAMES VERSION.

The Final authority in all matters of faith and practice!

God Bless You!


If you would like to buy your own copy of the KJV Bible they can be found on at a reasonable price.

Simple Plan of Salvation-A Bikers Last Ride

The Simple Plan of Salvation

How hard is it to get to heaven?,  We not all bad people and deserve to go to hell?, Why would anyone care for me after all I have done in my life?, To late for me?, Do I still have a chance?

Yes, there is still a chance for you! As long as you have breath in your lungs and are on this earth there is always hope for you!

The plan of salvation is a simple one, it is not trigonometry or algebra or even rocket science. It is a simple plan that the almighty God left for us in his word, the bible.

Steps to get saved and go to heaven;

Bible Version: King James Version

Final Authority on all matters of Faith and Practice
  1. By Faith: “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith {Romans 1-17}- You need to have faith, the same faith as getting on your bike and hope you will not get into an accident.
  2. Not one righteous: “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” {Romans-3:10}, no one can enter heaven on his/her own merits.
  3. All have come short: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:” Romans-3:23-24. We are all sinners and Jesus already paid for our sins due to the crucifixion on the cross he wiped away all our sins.
  4. Justified by Faith: “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” Romans-5:1, we have peace with God.
  5. Christ died 4 us: “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” Romans-5:8, even though we were all sinners Jesus died for all of us.
  6. Sin=Death:
  • 12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.
  • 13 For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
  • 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that have not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come”. Romans-12:14, we all live in sin, today.

7. Wages of sin is death:”For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans-6:23, The gift from God for you and it is free for all.

8. Confess to be saved: 9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans-9:13, You need to say it from your heart to and to be save.

9. By Grace not by Works: 8 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” No matter how good you are it won’t matter, you need to ask for forgiveness and ask to be saved. Ephesians-2:8-9.

10. Sanctified once and for all: 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all, 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.” Hebrews-10:12, Jesus is the only way, only he can save your soul.

My lovely painting

This is why you need to come to Christ!

And this is the prayer that you can say to be saved and become a rider for Christ. With your head bowed and eyes closed, say this;

{Lord, I know that I am a sinner unworthy of heaven and I deserve to go to hell, but Jesus has paid the debt for my sins and Jesus can save me from Hell. Now open your heart and say,”Jesus I ask that you forgive me for all my sins and please come into my heart and be my savior for now and forever. Thank you, Lord for giving me the gift of eternal life, Amen”}

That is it, You are now saved and will not burn in Hell, now go find a good church and start reading the King James Bible-Gods final authority on all matters of faith and practice. And turn from your old life and ways into a new life in Jesus Christ.

I hope you became saved and are now a child of God, if you enjoyed reading Simple Plan of Salvation-A Bikers Last Ride please leave a comment below and I will respond, Thank you and God Bless you.

Indian Motorcycle Accessories-My Passenger Seat and Backrest

My Passengers Comfort

So, when I bought my bike I knew I wanted to buy Indian Motorcycle Accessories and get a sissy bar with a backrest and a passenger seat. I mean I had these accessories on my Royal Enfield Continental GT, well all of them except my sissy bar. I could not find one for my bike not even from India and it was hard for my wife to climb in my back of my bike due to my lack of room for both of us.

So when I went into my Indian motorcycle dealer I knew that this would be part of my package deal for me. I paid for some of these accessories but the touring seat I received for free from Indians $1500 bonus for buying a new bike. I bought my Indian Motorcycle Accessories because of the high quality and workmanship that goes into making them. I mean the craftsmanship and bike fit are perfect. These accessories are not only functional but look fantastic while riding around town or in my country.

Below I will provide a brief description of each, where to purchase them at a reasonable price, and product information.

Sissy bar mounted on bike and the rear-view of the passenger backrest

Quick Release Passenger Sissy Bar Chrome

From Indian for: $399.99

Item# (2880232-156)
This quick release will keep my passenger riding in comfort with up to 12″ in rise it will provide comfort for my long ride with my significant other. This is available in black or chrome to best match my color scheme of my bike. The quick release allows me to remove it from my bike without any special tools and it provides a secure fit on my bike because it is for my bike. The passenger sissy bar also comes with a luggage rack to allow the rider to carry extra gear on a long journey. Construction of it is well-built, strong and secure I recommend this sissy bar for all scout/scout sixty motorcycle riding brothers it has that old school construction we all love.

My sissy bar is convenient and I added the genuine leather backrest for passenger comfort and luggage rack for more storage, which works out great with my bungee cords.

Genuine Leather Backrest Pad

Passenger seat with my daughters gift to me, The cookie monster!

From Indian for: 199.99

Item# (2880827-05)
The desert tan backrest from Indian motorcycle is the same backrest that used for the drivers’ backrest. It is well-made and comfortable and  supportive giving the passenger extra support they need on a long ride. It bolts on to the sissy bar with 3 bolts and fits, and offers a leather water-proof cover that provides protection from the elements.

The leather backrest pad is stable once bolted, and the cushioning is more than adequate, it is supportive. I loved these backrests so much that I purchased the drivers’ backrest, installed it and do not regret that decision.

I recommend you purchase the Indian motorcycle genuine leather backrest pad in desert tan for your scout or scout sixty it is durable and long-lasting and makes the bike look sharp.

The genuine leather passenger seat is made of great strong subtle leather that does not lose its shape after a long ride. I used this pad for at least 6 months and it still looks and feels as good as the first day it came out of the box. I enjoy using this pad and is great on long motorcycle adventures. My wife also loves her seat, she said that it is supportive and comfortable and it makes her feel safer while traveling as a passenger on the back of my bike. I am so glad that I decided to buy these 3 accessories that were made by Indian Motorcycle for my 2016 Scout Sixty, the only regret I have is that I did not shop around to get the best price, again my excitement of buying a new motorcycle at a dealer but I learned my lesson and will never do this again.

But now you can get these excellent Indian Motorcycle accessories For $649.97, yes, you read that right I paid $800 from Indian but you will pay less.

Motorcycle Riding Pants-My Black Leather Pants

Motorcycle Riding Pants

I remember when I went shopping for my first real motorcycle riding pants, this happened on October 22, 2016, at Cycle Gear of Cherry Hill. Now up to this point I rode around on just my regular, everyday jeans and that suited me fine except when the winter set in and I needed something warmer. Not just warmer but thanks to the safety class I needed something much more abrasive resistant. So I researched it online and went down to my new-found favorite motorcycle gear shop that just happen to be a nice ride from Fort Dix. So I straddled my Royal Enfield and was off to buy me a pair of riding pants. Although?, I wanted to buy a pair of black leather pants I did like the way the denim jeans looked.

But, here I was at Cycle Gear talking to a salesman about riding gear and we both agreed that for the winter and road safety that the motorcycle riding pants should be made out of leather. I agreed, I mean I had done the research and the leather pants priced at $159.00 with some discounts a good deal at $149.99, not bad. The fit was comfortable and they had enough room inside for wearing long johns a must for winter riding.

The Best all-purpose riding leathers on the market

  • Heavy duty zipper
  • 1.1-1.3mm full grain leather
  • Perforated above and behind knees for more protection
  • Comfort leather stretch panels
  • CE approved armor at knees
  • Stretch leather panels at waist/ padded kidney belt
  • Zip entry front pockets for convenience
  • Comfortable wear
  • Long lasting and rugged

These motorcycle riding pants were bought by me in October 2016, for $149.99 and it is still available Here for a discounted rate of $139.99. The leather riding pants was worth the $149.99, this was a great pair of leather motorcycle pants that was high quality and made to last a lifetime.

Today, these are my go to leather riding pants for the fall and winter or when the weather is not so great. I have not had any problems with these pants. They are made of a strong leather reinforced at the seams. I like the way they feel and even in the summer they are cool. The downside if any is that they do not have any back pockets and at first it was a hassle but you get use to it and you lose the ass numbness you get after a long ride.

Indian Scout Leather Saddlebags-My Bike Bags

My Saddlebags

My Indian scout leather saddlebags are the same ones I use for my scout sixty and they are a beautiful work of art. It all began when I went to Cosmos Indian dealer in Pennsylvania to purchase my 2016 Indian Scout Sixty. I remember the sales man and I went back and forth on my trade in value and what they wanted to give me for it. I mean it was my first bike ever and I had some emotional attachment to it. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 535i was a great naked bike with some awesome after market accessories.

We agreed on the price of the trade in and I purchased the Indian Scout Sixty. They gave me the $1500 to accessorize and I added the extended reach foot controls, the passenger pillion and backrest as well as the beige seat, but not the saddlebags. I loved the look and feel of the saddlebags but they were expensive. Then when I was home later that night I researched other bags for my Scout Sixty and  found some good ones and some not so good. I thought some more about the Indian saddlebags and decided to call Cosmos Indian Motorcycle dealer and have them install the beige saddlebags and add it to my payments. So I bought the saddlebags and those bags look great, but not just that, they are also functional.

Saddlebag Features

  • Genuine leather saddlebags
  • Convenient and versatile cargo space
  • Spacious roto-molded polymer tub (wrapped in vinyl to hold saddlebag shape)
  • Provides easy access to entire interior space
  • The premium leather and straps are water-resistant
  • Each bag can hold most 15″ laptops
  • Easy installation and removal
  •  Mounting spools needed (#2881666) to install them

I  recommend these bags because they are large enough to store just enough to get to where you need to go, but small enough to be functional. They also complement the white Indian that I have and it gives the bike some class. I have had the bags for a while now and I have had no problems with them, the clips still strong and the leather still looks good even though I have rode in the rain.

This is the back view of the saddlebags

Overall Specs

  1. Storage Capacity: 4.6 Gal./left hand- 4.82 Gal./Right-hand
  2. Color Desert Tan
  3. Warranty: 1 year from the date of purchase
  4. Recommended: Yes (9-10) for style, color, durability and great looks)
  5. Price: $999 from Indian Motorcycle
  6. Buy them here for $999.99

It was a good buy at the time and I do not regret my decision in buying them. Although?, I did pay the full price at the time, I blame the excitement of buying my first Indian Motorcycle on that. Buy them, you will not regret your decision and your bike will thank for it.

My Indian Winter Ride-2nd December Ride!

Hello again, today I went for my Indian winter ride second December ride and on the verge of a snow storm here in Minot North Dakota. Today the temperature was 24 degrees with a riding temperature of 11 degrees due to the wind blowing at 19 MPH. It was not a long ride it only lasted about 30 minutes but I was able to capture some video with my scuba diving camera.
Scuba Diving Camera? Yes, my scuba diving camera that I used in the Florida keys in Islamorada and took some great video and pictures while scuba diving. I just placed the camera in the front of the bike on top of my red bag I have up there. It worked out kinda, I mean I had to edit the video and add music, but it is my first video of me riding my motorcycle.

Ride that motorcycle!

Was it cold?, you bet it was and my feet they did get cold. I now know to wear my timberland boots with some thermal socks on all future winter rides, and, I will let you know on my next ride how it worked out.

About the Ride

I set up the video camera and was off, made a right down my street then another right at the end onto the main street. I drove to the end and made a right and passed a horse farm on the left and a defensive driving course halfway through. Then turned around and drove around checking out all the sights here on post. And ended up with about 11 and a half minutes of film footage then edited it to  around 6 minutes. Then I inserted a title and some of my own trumpet music mixes that I played and recorded on my computer in the past. It came out good, I mean with the music and the riding everything just fit good.

I hope you enjoy my first video MotoVlog, just me the camera and the bike riding around on post with some cool music to help relax you.
