Motorcycle of the Year: The only 2015 bike I've actually ridden any distance is the Indian Scout, so it wins this category by default. There are many legitimate reasons for the Scout to be selected as MOTY, but I'm not choosing the Scout based on its merits. I'm picking the Scout because Polaris, the parent company of Indian Motorcycles, has done the best job fluffing my fragile motojourno ego. They've loaned me a Victory Vision to tour New Zealand and let me swan a decked-out Indian Chief around Daytona Bike Week. Then they loaned me a Scout for the long ride to Daytona and bought me a hamburger too. Casting my vote for Indian's Scout is a clear signal to all the other manufacturers. This is not brain surgery. Buy me a hamburger.
