Welcome to the first Moto Bloggin’ post, a monthly roundup of news and my personal thoughts and adventures from the world of motorcycling. There are two things to note before I continue, the first is if you’re reading this on dazzlerebel.net this will not only be the first but also the last Moto Bloggin’ post. This is because I will be using dazzlerebel.net to focus less on motorcycling and more on music but more of that in a future post. All future Moto Bloggin’ posts will be found on my new Moonshine Moto blog so if you want to stay fresh with the Moto Bloggin’ series pop along and subscribe for new post notifications.
The second thing to note, well more of a tidbit or even observation is that ‘blogs’ usually evolve into ‘vlogs’ (that’s video-logs for those not familiar with the term), not the other way around. I’ve been ‘vlogging’ for over two years now on my YouTube channel Dazzle Rebel Rides but as the winter creeps in and other projects take over, time to record and edit videos begins to dry up.

That’s pretty damn good going since starting with just three models, the Chief, Chief Vintage and Chieftain 5 years ago.
It was bound to happen sooner rather than later. Indian Motorcycle have released their own take on the Bobber concept based on what other bike than the Scout.
There’s nothing really surprising about the route they’ve taken with the concept; cut down the rear fender, remove the front fender and stick on the smallest one possible to satisfy the Eurocrats and safety lobby, black out the wheels, replace the traditional clocks with a blacked-out set, stick on a set of blacked-out tracker bars and replace the headlight for something reminiscent of the Chief Dark Horse. There’s also a new seat to accommodate the new fender. Continue reading “Indian Scout launch new Bobber”→
