    That's what was said in 014 when the new Indian first hit the streets. Not only still here, but growing. But this new engine has Victory all over it as far as I am concerned. So I think they've merged Victory into the Indian line-up. But you'll not hear them say it.

    It did take them 18 years to 86Th Victory.........But they did incorporate a lot of Victory in Indians smaller bikes....

    Don't blame you. I wouldn't trade you but I like it too. I searched for one before giving up and getting my Indian.

    Very nice, lots of attention paid to that Valk Trike and it shows. Always liked how that Valk engine popped, Honda should not have dropped it.

    Default Mechs made a good living on low time Hardlys and ford diesels for a lifetime

    I understand trying to stay American Made supporting our own machinsts. But its hard to see mistakes made by USA builders get slammed more than other machines. Im also disappointed to see small mistakes like hot exhaust under the seat on the Indian, but look what Vic has overcame in a short time compared to others.

    Mechs made a good living on low time Hardlys and ford diesels for 40/50 years ?

    hardly is still 20 years behind a GL1800, try the mountains pulling a trailer I never owned a forn car or truck but the GL1800 was foundry to all the machining by Americans in Ohio plant under one roof. I owned a Tool & Die shop 41 years. I did all the design and mold building myself. Nothing matters pretty soon anyway with our USA going down the toilet unless we stand up along all roads.

    IMHO there wont be a trustworthy V twin better than the Indian for another generation. Keyword, roadworthy.

    I have friends who have new trikes by other Vtwins that can Not trust them away from home, breakdowns...2 time Nam vet also, pilot engineer
