I have a feeling that's more prose than poetry and very prophetic. A precursor of things to come.

I am beginning to tire of the marketing slogan regarding choice in American motorcycles. It's a serious diss of Victory and those who own and ride one. If this approach keeps up, it has the potential to turn into a three way us versus them. I want Indian to succeed and think they will but I don't agree with how they are going about it. They could have easily used something like another choice in American motorcycles which implies an addition to the already existing choice.

I don't know what you saw in that commercial but it simply says not even your usual harley snub can't deny the fact that this is the real deal American motorcycle. I can guarantee you one thing...no one ever will bring up the Indian is made by the snowmobile manufacturer crap. Ever!

Scorpoin6, IMO, The new Indian competes more directly with H-D than do our Vics. IMO (again) it has to do with tradition and heritage, a territory where Victory falls short. It appears that more Vic owners came from the metric world than from H-D's. Indians have all the 1940s design cues and hardware, while our Vics are contemporary high tech; the VTX for those who want to own American iron, but not necessarily an H-D.
Many on the forum and elsewhere own both a Vic and an H-D; I don't think we will be seeing so much of that with Indian ownership. It's gonna be more of an us and them thing. Bring on the Harley-Indian wars redux!

RICZ, I agree with your statement but in the end, one division of Polaris is completely overlooking and by default disrespecting another division. Not the end of the world by a long shot, admittedly. It's both nice and good to see a renewed rivalry between Indian and Harley Davidson and in the end it will be good for the riding public.

I don't think that there are going to be too many having to flip a coin whether to go to a Victory or an Indian showroom, do you? Also, we don't know what Victory has for us in the future, what with the advent of Indian. I'm taking a wait and see here.
