|NEW WINDSHIELD BY LRS ON INDIAN CHIEFTAIN|
HERE ARE THE NEW BIKES
After putting a few miles on each of the new models, My favorite of course was the Chieftain. What I loved about it was the smooth ride mixed with the deep sounds and the mesh of old and new; the bike just made sense. The best feature in my opinion was the windshield and fairing system which like some of the other modern German and metric bikes, was a motorized adjustable system. This allows the best of performance and comfort on the highway, all the while allowing the freedom and airflow that most motorcyclists find desirable in the bending back roads.
For me the potential switch wont be an abandonment of Harley, but the embracing of a long lost brother. If ever there was a reason to own two bikes, I now have it! The Indian is a piece of our heritage that many may have discounted or left to the side of the road, but the new bikes do an excellent job of remembering the pioneers and bringing nostalgia to the motorcycle experience.
Now that I have rationalized my unnatural thoughts and wicked motorcycle desires lets review the history of this ancient Juggernaut.
