I bought a Judge in September last year. I traded in my 2015 Indian Scout for it.
Problem is, just a few weeks back, one of my riding buddies goes and gets a Judge.
Don't know how I feel about it.
Does anyone feel uneasy about riding with identical bikes?

shado man,
Why did you trade a 2015 Indian Scout ??

a. There are 3 exact same white visions on this small island, and nobody is bothered about it ....

b. If you happen to have a Ducati Diavel then they are ALL the same, now that is BORING, about 20 of them on this small Island.

c. My own experiance, (if its worth something to ya) I have a Orange '13 Jackpot, and was the only one in this country .... THEN they found one ex-stock showroam-model in the USA, and the Victory showroom asked me how i would feel if a second bike exactly same as mine come to this Island
My Answer: I'll sell my bike and buy another brand .... :devil

Conclusion, it could be fricking COOL if your riding buddy has the same bike ..... entirely ip to you my friend ....

. hoped to have helped confusing you more .

Hehe....no help at all :grin

Traded the Scout because, IMO, the gearbox was rubbish. It kept hitting false neutrals between 5th and 6th amongst other issues.

Victory gearbox...solid as f**k. No issues at all.

You need to modify it to make it your own unique machine.

Yeah every mass produced motorcycle of particular make and model is the same as the next one.
My Vegas has individuality in the Burleigh Bars, TorqueTubes and Freedom Performance pipes, tuned to perfection. My saddlebags are unique. Theres no chance of a mirror image of my Vegas pulling up next to me at the lights...
None at all...and its a good feeling.

I ride a XR and after nearly 4 years I have yet to meet my doppelganger! The upside of riding a bike that no few others care for.

I think you just posed the question that all Harley riders ask :wink
But yeah, make it your own and who cares what other people are riding...getting one like yours just says that they have good taste! Ride on and enjoy the open road!

Yeah, can't swing a cat without hitting a black HD Streetglide and that doesn't seem to slow down additional purchases of those. So no worries.

G'day,

Vinish

Imitation is the best form of flattery, right? Now if you custom paint yours and he copies that, he might need an adjustment.

I had an Imperial blue 2011 CC. I custom painted it Tequila Gold with flames but did all the edges in Candy orange. 2 months later a guy living very close to me buys a Tequila gold bike with flames. Mine has flames on the hard lowers and trunk also so between that and the better quality paint I am good.

The Judge is such a rare and cool bike, I wouldn't worry about it.

For over 100 years Harley owners have been trying to add enough personal touches to thier bikes so they could figure out which one was there where they were leaving the bar. If there's only one other guy with the same bike you have that means you have a 50% chance of getting on the one you own!
