The Indian Rides Again
Now is the time of year that all the Motorcycle Manufactures all announce their new model year line up. The American offerings for Harley-Davidson, Victory and Indian have all be announced. While the new bikes have many of the styling cues of the rides of yester-year, much of the technology has been updated to modern standards. Unfortunately, those electronic controls for fuel injection, engine management, braking and 'infotainment' all take away what I truly love about motorcycles – being able to wrench and work on my own bike.
I will admit to owning a Kawasaki Drifter 800 that mimicked and copied the lines of the original Indian, it remains one of my favorite bikes that I ever owned. <
