When it comes to a friendly, easy-to-ride cruiser, the Scout designers did their homework. Aside from the short windshield that I installed last month, I’ve been rolling bone stock and not really feeling the need to change anything to improve the ride. Sure, there’s room for improvement, but I love it as is! And about that windshield… Yes, it’s a proper fit, it does an adequate job of deflecting wind, and doesn’t take away from the styling too much, but I had to ask myself: Would I part with $450 if I were a Scout owner? My answer was no for a couple reasons. Not only is it pricey, but it also doesn’t quite fit my plan for how I want the bike to look. Your answer may vary, especially if your pockets are a little deeper and you spend a lot of time on the highway. For now, I’ve shelved the screen. So on to the exhaust mod.
