Are you saying that in a "I want one" kind of way?
Or are you saying it in a "another dark horse bike" kind of way?

Nice marketing ploy--offer a bike in primer so you can paint it whatever color you like.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."

What I'm saying is...."Indian is starting to turn out some seriously kick-ass bikes" The Chieftain Limited, Scout Bobber, RoadMaster Elite now this Springfield Dark Horse....I thought that the 2017 HD Road Thing(King) Special Harley came out with was one of the best looking and balanced touring bikes I've ever seen....but this Springfield has got it all over that bike....and I just know Indian is is going to bring this dark line up with some painted models in the future.

I know what you're saying. When polaris revamped Indian, I wanted to see one in person. I damn near got wood when I saw a Springfield Blue Chief with (fringe free) tan leather seat and bags. Even now, after the F-YOU from polaris, I would buy an Indian Springfield IF I had the means to do so. At the same time, a suzuki drz400sm "tickles my fancy" as well. Basically, I like what I like, want what I want.

I thought you were pointing out the fashion clash of brown boots with black gear and bike.

Oh, my wife would be so proud of me.

Nice looking bike but not going to fit anyone over 6ft tall by any stretch of the imagination

Na....I'm NOT at all interested in a new motorcycle. After all the time & money I've put into getting my XC where it is (and I still don't have a Corbin seat or my Vicwrapz).....I need many more years to enjoy it all So you all are stuck with me a while
As for Indian, I really like what they are doing, the models they are coming out with or improving are checking my boxes. I like where they are going and when it comes time for another bike there's a very good chance it'll be an Indian.
