To put the Indian Scout and awesome accessories to the test, Indian Motorcycle and Iron & Air Magazine took four riders to New Mexico last November to explore the western landscape. Each Scout can be customized with accessories to create a motorcycle as unique as its rider.
Meet the crew and explore their machines below.
