Talked to a guy at my local HD shop when I rode in to get my calendar on Saturday.

They are excited about the Street bikes. Hoping to have them in April, at least for people to sit on.

Snow and ice now. Riding on the street will have to wait until April for me anyway.

Question

Off on a tangent now, I wonder how the new Indians are performing sales wise? They seem to have sold their whole allocation of 111 bikes in no time in Australia..

Push start?

My understanding is that it is a symbol of enlightenment.

I think the different colored dots represent which Caste one is from.

No.
It's really like a lottery card scratch-off ticket for the groom on his wedding night. He gets to see whether he's going to inherit a taxi service, motel chain, or convenience store from the bride's parents.

The Bindi is a symbol of the intellect and of respect for the inner Guru.

Very nice indeed. How would a taller person say 6' 0 find it considering it's a "low rider?"

It could work with the mid controls, but you might need the forward controls. I'm 6'-3" with a 36" inseam. Mid controls are a non starter for me. I've got forwards on my Low Rider.

I am 6'5 and this bike is modifiable without having to buy anything. See that pad on the seat? That is there for the vertically challenged and can be removed to accommodate taller riders.

The bars and risers are a new design and can also accommodate both Tall and short riders. They can be adjusted without removal.

The dual front floating rotors work very well and ABS brakes can be had as an OPTION (as it should be)

The foot controls are new for Harley as well. The are "Forward Mids" They are about 4" forward from the standard mid controls (about half way between mids and forward controls).. You could convert it to forward controls but I am not sure why you would want to.

This is my new favorite bike in the MoCo line-up.
