Last summer Group’s Editorial Director Sean Alexander, MOs Senior Editor John Burns and Editor-in-Chief Scott Rousseau spent a week in America’s midwest touring the Polaris factory, H-D museum, and Springfield Armory.

“Polaris Industries’ Plant Manager Jesse Barthel (middle) took us on an extensive tour of Polaris’ Osceola Engine Assembly Plant, introducing us to a lot of neat folks inside the place, like Phil Wallander (plaid shirt), who built the very first Indian engine after Polaris bought the brand in 2009,” penned Rousseau in our American Iron Road Tour story. For Indian, there’s no more sharing production lines with Victory.
