|Overall||★ ★ ★ ★|
The 03 Scout is a solid bike with plenty of power. I've added new Vance & Hines straight shot exhaust, Doherty Machine power vents, lower crank vent filter, K&N intake filter,carbon/kevlar brakes and lots of chrome. This bike will never cease to be noticed wherever I ride it! Oh, by the way, if you put some of the performance parts in that I did, beware of the solo seat. You may just fly off the back ! The only problem I had was with the starter setup. Starter motor died in the first 500 miles and the starter gear bolt worked it's way out after 5000 miles. The stock brakes are a little weak but, servicable. All things considered, I love this ride and it really turns heads. Especially when you pop the throttle with those loud pipes ;-) I selected this bike over the Harley FXDL (Dyna Low Rider). I've noticed that Harley folks love this bike too! that's my 2 cents. I've been ridin' for about 22 years and I think I'll stick with this Scout for a long time to come.
