I've been browsing the site for some time looking for info and just general research before buying my new (to me) bike. Previously I was always on a dual sport, sport tourer, or something else but never a cruiser. What changed my mind? Well I went for a little jaunt, nothing crazy and only about a 45-60 minute ride, and though the ride was good when I got home, dismounting the bike my back, knees and hips just cracked and popped and were generally just sore. So the quest began for a change. Non of the metric cruisers really caught my eye and I didn't want a Harley, I can get into that later. At the time I thought the only two American cruiser were going to be Victory and Harley Davidson. As I already mentioned, Harley was already a no go, though the Fat Bobs are pretty sharp, I started looking at maybe a Victory. Perusing Craigslist, looking for something I started coming across the Indian motorcycles being built within the last 5-6 years or so and I had found my answer. That weekend we went to the local dealership and I test rode a Scout Bobber, but quickly realized that it would not be the most enjoyable for two up riding though I do like the aesthetics and it is comfortable for solo riding. After the Scout test ride I was a little up in the air when the sales rep pointed out the Chief Dark Horse that I had parked next to. After some smooth talk from the sales dude I ended up taking it for a test ride and fell in love. My wife and I immediately did what we needed to do (which included selling her Ninja 500 and my Bandit 1250) to come up with a down payment, and the rest is history. While there has been a small learning curve on this bike, like letting it warm up a bit before rolling away, it has been a real blessing. It is a 2017 Chief Dark Horse, Tab Performance Exhaust, Indian Stage One Intake and Indian Stage two cams and 2400 miles on the clock. The previous owner (from Oklahoma I was told) traded it in on a Chieftain.
