    I like it. I prefer the full valenced fender though, and I like the Leather bags better than the hard bags - but that is All changeable. I like that Indian came out with this model. I would definitely put a lighted War Bonnet on the Front Fender - It would look good on both the skirted and unskirted fender.

    If I get much more buggy from not being able to ride, I might start blacking my SF out like that.

    I like it, even without the valanced fender. I love my Springfield, and prefer the valanced fender, but would be open to this possibility. However, if I have to choose, it'd be my blue/silver Springfield ten out of ten times.

    Valenced fender fan - with the bike all blacked out and the smaller fender bike looks mis-proportioned as in too "thin" up front for me - personal preference for sure

    the better geometry will be a welcome improvement for those wanting the blacked out look.
