    I love that Indian have released another new and exciting bike.

    I embraced the FTR wholeheartedly.

    I welcomed the 116 into many of the new big bikes as standard.

    But sorry, I am just a little fatigued with the Challenger...
    - loads of anticipation and guessing what it would look like (all good - but man it was done to death)
    - dozens of different threads on the same topic - again no issue, except the repetition
    - hundreds of different opinions - normally a good thing, but the circular nature of the discussion is the thing
    - and now that it has finally been released, we are off and running again.

    I am not sure if I like it or not yet, but I am done reading about it.

    I will now exercise my democratic right to not open any more Challenger threads.

    I'm done - and it feels better already ... ironically that means I cannot open this thread again to read any replies!!! Ha, that is quite funny. I might have to make an exception already!!

    Can anyone recommend any Challenger fatigue therapy, other than getting off the computer and getting on my SF?

    Agree 100% but what I really am sick of is all the Harley comparisons.. The Facebook Indian Groups all have guys hating on how the bike looks similar to a Roadglide. From what I read there is a majority of us that still has or had a Harley prior to Indian. My opinion is the bike is similar but how wouldn't a frame mounted fairing V-twin Bagger not be. The Roadglide doesn't have inverted forks, adjustable fairing, a radiator. The comparison crap to me has been played out since the 2019 Chieftain came out. I personally am not a fan of the Frame mounted fairing look but if I was I would purchase the 120HP liquid cooled Challenger.

    Agree - I should have added all the ridiculous HD comparisons to my list.

    HDs are HDs and Indians are Indians.

    Both are good bike brands, it just depends on what you are looking for and what marketing appeals to you - let's move on...

    Now thats a different topic.

    Beer is a super food - IMHO.

    It ranks alongside red wine, red meat, cheese, pizza, ice cream and chocolate - as the true super foods of the world.

    Yep, I love beer - especially IPAs, good pale ales, NEIPAs, RIPAs, XPAs and a heap of other craft beers.

    I would be very happy to shout you a beer - any time, and any beer that you like.

    So, this OP should have gone under the "Not Indian Motorcycle General Conversation"?

    I guess I got confused wondering about the appropriate place to post posts about not reading posts that someone wants read. Maybe I just shouldn't have posted?

    There's a black Dodge Challenger for sale down the street for under $8k. I'm tempted!

    Its probably going to get worse, before it gets better. Kelby at Twigg Indian, told me today that he already has a wait list for them. I think it's going to be Indian 's best one yet.
