That thing looks amazing
Interesting that some parts of the country already have and are selling the Chief. I talked to the local Indian dealer here in western Washington and they hadn't received any Chiefs and didn't know when they would finally get some.
Baby, oh baby, oh baby.
A buddy and I camped out in Moab and did some riding around UT. This was crossing Lake Powell on the ferry, my first time ever putting a bike on a boat. It was pretty neat.
Then we rode around and checked out some Native art in Sego Canyon, the Dewey Suspension Bridge along the CO River, and the La Salle Mountain overlook.
And two more random pics just because
Sorry man. Right away I thought you look like a mature version of Richard Schroder.
Challenger has gotten a lot of positive reviews. I might have to ride one, one of these days.
Took the wife’s bike out to Evergreen and back to get the last of the break-in miles under wraps while she is out of state attending ALC. Time to schedule it’s first service and have it ready for our TX trip at the end of the month.
Demo'd a couple of bikes today on a whim from the Indian demo truck at a moto show. I returned the FTR thinking that was interesting, but unremarkable. Then the white Challenger caught my eye, and they were like - you signed the waiver, you're good to go. Nice. I think this bike was modified from stock - I can't see pipes that loud and apes being factory, but maybe. The front end is imposing to look over/around, but once it's out of the parking lot I forgot all about it. I have to say that I was really impressed. That's a great motor - great power down low yet it's happy to rev up and get moving. The gear box was also smoother than I expected for a cruiser. Handling was light and agile, with a good feel through some curves. After a few minutes I was right at home. There is even space to throw a leg over the crash bars, which is nice to stretch out. Glad I took this for a spin, and I am super impressed with Indian's bikes and the great people!
Have to post the 1901 odometer pic, right?
Did about 370 miles today going southwest to Conifer, CO and then looping up to the NE/WY/CO border intersection and into Cheyenne, WY before heading back home.
Sat on and played with the gadgets on the Challenger: what a pretty bike. The liquid cooling and power output has me intrigued.
After being apart for the last 30 days because of yet more Army fun my wife and I got to enjoy a leisurely brunch ride with an hour plus detour on the way home. It also let us try out our new HJC RPHA 90s helmets with HJC/Sena 20b BT headsets, both of which we were very happy with. Additionally I got to start the break-in process on my new Saddlemen Step-Up seat that I’m definitely pleased with thus far.
Looks nice Dutch. I just got my Saddleman Road sofa for the Chieftain. I’ll take some pics soon and post them. I know it takes a bit to break in and so far I like it.
Made it down for another trip to Cadillac Ranch and then went to see the Palo Duro Canyon.
My old stomping grounds. Hwy 207 north of Silverton and south of Claude is a good ride thru the canyon bottoms, southeast of the park where the canyon opens up. There is also the Caprock Canyon which is actually an extension.
I'll have to check those out if we go down that way again. The park was cool, but not necessarily worth the 1 hour wait to get into the gate due to Memorial Day Weekend traffic. If we had been planning to camp out or something it would've been different but we just checked out a few of the scenic points and rode through it.
