This is my first motorcycle (Rita) and I really had no clue what I was getting myself into (something great). Aside from the fluids being black and needing replacing, I have changed the air filter, oil filter, and grips. The chain needs to be replaced soon, as do the tires but for now I'm riding with the rubber side down. She leaks a little oil.. I'm no mechanic but it doesn't seem very serious. I rode it from east Hollywood to my parent's in San Luis Obispo and back and it didn't let me down. Now that I'm sure I'm keeping the bike, I'm giving it the love it deserves. One more old bike on the road.

When I turned up with it at my folks house, the first thing my mom said was, "Grand dad rode an Indian..." - she took it better than expected

Nice bike, I had to up the gearing a bit to get it to be a real highway bike. Lots of fun to ride, very light, nice sound, easy to work on. Fairly rare nowadays....

I like my Ascot but I have no delusions. I know what it is, a cheap, fun, light weight ride that is at home on back country roads. Don't expect to keep up with the sport bike crowd because it won't. It swings into corner effortlessly and powers out of corners with authority. It is right at home on my dirt road and that's part of it charm. It's a good fun little bike.
