It's a shame that Indian went in the direction of the upscale, expensive bike market.

They would be far more successful if they took the route of Triumph and built retro models within a price range that had a broader market.

"It's not "America's First Motorcycle."

I know that. I was quoting the dopes in the article.

Fantastic use of the non-sequiter Kev.

Anyway, ask a few of those unemployed folks if they wish there were a few more rich people around right now.

My fee remains the same.

"and while everything is new to these machines, the company consistently asserts itself as a bona fide producer of authentic American motorcycles and boasts of it's heritage"

Actually, that is a good thing. Imagine trying to sell actual 1954 Indian Chiefs.

I'm not against the bikes and hope the company survives. They just need to knock off the misleading ads. It's going to bite them eventually.
