Would have liked to see him test a Chieftain against his Vision. Over all pretty well done. I still like my Cross Country best.

Thanks for the post of the video, I'm not sure what to make of that seemed like a very well camouflaged negative review. It will be interesting to hear rider reviews from defectors of other brands.

I test rode the Chiefton a couple weeks ago and I can honestly say I really liked it. I thought it was very comfortable and I really liked the power windshield. Throttle by wire did take a little bit to get used to but not bad, just different. Had a great stereo and loved information system on it. I think they will be selling a lot of bikes. I ride the Cross Country now and really like it but I think I like the Indian just a little better. Both are great bikes

Did you get to ride it long enough to make a good comparison to your XC tranny and motor. How was the shifting? Did you notice any motor noises in regards to clacking and whining? Maybe in certain gears?

How does it handle and ride compared to your XC?

We went on probably a 15 mile test ride, it was long enough to get a good comparison. I really liked how the tranny sounded, there was no cluncking like get with the Victory and I noticed no noise when just sitting there with it running and in neutral that I get on the Victory. It was very smooth shifting.

I thought the handling was real comparable. My son thought it handled better than the Victory, he just didnt' like the old style look. I would buy one in a heart beat

It definitely sits lower than the Vics. I could easily flat foot the Chief Vintage on both sides. And as the guy in the video said, those seats are going to be scrapped for the even deeper bucket Chiefton seat. It's great if yer skeered of heights I suppose. Personally, I am not a fan of the knees above hips riding position.

I agreed with most of the video guys assessments. As I told a guy on a Vic coming in as I was leaving when he asked what I thought: "I think I'll be riding this Vic underneath me for a while."

Bling is the name of the game in the cruiser world, so I may be the last guy left puttering around on a Vic...
