Poetry in motion for sure.

I spent the afternoon throwing together a wall rack for that 40 gallon speaker box I been carrying around.

You know, without that thing and with some other minor touches to the tail end the ole Vic might just endear itself to me. Won't replace the Vintage but then a good woman isn't a replacement the one that left you standing either.

Still, that Roadmaster is awful easy on the eye. Mine was lowered, not slammed and I did go through a few sets of floorboards. That fella there needs to employ the fuel infusion device on his rightside handlebar grip. It's a wonderful gizmo and would help him reduce air drag under the machine by reducing the space between his frame rails and the tar in them twisties.

Just saying.

It does seem like it has pretty decent clearance for such activities.

I spent a little time boning up on the new engine. I always thought the bottle top was an attractive design, but now that I'm learning more, I see where Polaris is going. They've really made the new engine emulate one of the originals albeit now chrome plated. Even that business of the exhaust coming straight down outta the head is old skool.

You gotta hand it to them if they are able to make it all function reasonably well and last a while.

Just think the new Indian motor has to be running 24/7 to find out its reliability
Never have bought the first year any thing.
Any one that buys the first year will need that extend warranty

I bought the first year Cross bike and passed on the extended warranty with the dealer's blessing. He said the only thing we see these Victorys in for are accessories and routine maintenance. So far, I'm winning this bet.
Polaris does not place a new product on the showroom floor without first having done exhaustive testing. Through a friend, I got to exchange emails with a fellow in AZ who was one of the relay riders during the development of the Cross bikes. The preproduction bikes were ridden 24/7 on track and highway. Detailed reports were written by the riders and engineers worked diligently to resolve any concerns. I have no reason to believe Polaris would do any less for its Indians.
