I think he puts out the best videos.
He & FortNine are my favorites.
He has a great way in the use of words.
One of the straight up no nonsense,non soft pedaling, reviewers on here.
Most are doing reviews influenced by who ever supplied the bike to be reviewed.
Especially those stupid dealer days.
To me if your going to do a review get out on real roads, hills corners rough surface good surface push it some in corners and so on. get sick of all the nandee pandee stuff.
I remember when the 1340 evo's were around and Aussie/New Zealand were the two main countries that kept breaking 3/4 gear . Willie g did a ride here from the south to the north island and found out first hand why. Every where he rode on that hog trip was hills corners and chasing down that unseen rider up ahead. He then understood why those gears kept breaking. that is real review stuff. Now I am not say lets try and break a bike just get out and really ride it.
, then give your view.
Rant for today thanks.
i dont care for the design at all, looks like it was built in someone's backyard.Looks too much like a Yamaha Bolt.
That is so right think they have just tipped away from some of the iconic Indian chief styling a tad to far.
And when you see the Bolt along side, to me it has become a bit to close to mainstream.
I think if they had gone with more of a chief front/rear guard styling but not quite as old school as the chief is now the overall look would have in my view have better a balance and the bike would be a nicer looking package visually.
I believe they were going for that built at home look. Look at the ads that lead up to the reveal. It's not for everyone I agree.
I think back yard build look is what they were shooting for,everyone isnt going to like everything.
It's not for everyone I agree. Nothing ever is...
You remember this thread (2018 Chieftain Darkhorse...So long War bonnet and skirted fender | Indian Rider - Indian Motorcycle Forums) ? Post #8 is where I got cranked up. "Not for everyone", remains true. I think folks look for Indian DNA in the design language and I suppose that means different things to different people.
Hey, has anyone ever heard of a chopper or a bobber? Yeah, that whole thing. Wait, isn't one of these bikes called a "Bobber"? Crazy how that worked out, almost like they were trying to build a bike that someone bobbed down from stock, almost like someone would do in their backyard. Motorcycle history is interesting, I bet there are books about it out there.
Yes. Here's my post in 17. It took 4 years.
I also love puppies.
Kind of a look at what bikers do to bikes
That bronze bike is beautiful
In the advertising photos, the Chief with the solo saddle. I think that without a front fender, that is a really good modern take of a post war Bobber right there, jmo.
