Rode the plain Indian yesterday at the Phx. show. Rode the blue one without windshield or bags. Very nice and smooooth riding bike. The transmission shifted very nice, wish my XR shifted that nice. Was inpressed actually. If you want a very cushy ride for long trips the Indian may just be your ticket. Still owe the bank on my XR so it is still new to me till I pay it off. They do seem very high quality. Now for the things that bugged me personally, sorry I know I am not suppose to say anything negative about them, but then again the is a forum for Victorys. #1 the speedo is on top of the fuel tank,you have to look down to see your speed, unsafe to me. #2 the primary/clutch cover does protrude to the left to far in my opinion, sorta like those there HD bikes with that big ass primary covery, ha,ha. There you go only two things I listed, very good really for the first time riding one and first year of production. I personally think they ought to offer a annalog speedo and tach mounted above the handle bars as is an option on the Victorys. The protruding clutch/primary cover, you would get use to that after a few miles.----------Overall very nice bike, the Indian, I think they will stay around for some time if they do not deside to jack the prices way up as some popular bike brands have done in the past.
