I'm interested.

Also wonder if Harley is paying attention, we can all spout are mouths off about not liking it, it's not a Harley, etc...

But the fact is, the riding public sees Indian, presented well, with a strong company behind it, Harley needs to be paying attention. I would guess that we'll see Indian expand the line up to better challenge Harley as time moves on.

The question I have is will it be Indian or Victory that introduces a Sportster style machine?

Probably Indian. Victory is too busy building Real Housewives of O.C. style mid life crisis'.

And that looks good. Why they had to go with that great big ugly one is beyond me. Maybe it will just be an introduction year thing. I hope cause would really like to own an American made bike and I don't care for Victory. Indian has been on my wish list for a long time but I'll keep what I got until it falls apart I guess.

I am not a fan of the fenders either but I would not let that stop me. I like it but the reliability is yet to be seen. Ford did the whole reliability and performance video on the eco-boost before it went on sale that made it look bullet proof and they are having quit a few issues.

The retractable windshield is kind of cool on the bagger.

Part of me likes them, but I also know I'm not interested in one for myself. I look forward to seeing them in person for sure.

And nobody in there right mind would complain about the return of an American made cruiser in the market. Competition in the marketplace normally only stands to help the consumer.

Their accessories are priced so high you'll be glad you have a Harley. $700.00 for highway pegs is a little steep for me.
