Today’s Gear

What’s New, Now

Indian Scout Bobber


The Indian Scout Bobber holds true to the classic Bobber style: it’s stripped down and laid bare with chopped fenders, a low-slung leather seat and a minimal engine cover. Knobby tires and cast aluminum wheels are punctuated by a shadowy, blacked-out frame. It’s also screamingly powerful: a 69-cubic-inch, 100-horsepower, V-Twin six-transmission engine delivers buckets of acceleration.

Nau Boiled Wool Shirt Jacket


You know wool. But do you know boiled wool? Essentially, hot water shrinks the fiber, making the wool feel finer and smoother than its untreated counterparts. Put that in a classic shirt jacket, and you’ve got a winning combination for cool autumn weather.
