    Alpal asked to do an introduction of myself and first of all I´d like to say thank you for the warm welcome!

    My name is Markus, age 42, and I´m a two wheel addict since I was a young man. Had a lots of bikes over the year of various brands and types.

    My career as an Indian rider started last year in May by purchasing a brand new Scout Bobber in matte black.
    I fell in love with this bike since the first time I saw her when it was introduced in some European motorcycle magazines.

    My passion is not only riding a bike, but also making it to something special an unique by doing some mods, at the best on my one as far as possible.

    I still love my Bobber, but then I saw in the showroom of my favorite dealer a big black lady, and what could I say, my heart started to get feelings for the new 2019 chieftain.

    I´m sure you all know what happened next... Within a few days I signed a contract and some days later I was able to call her mine.

    So two of this great motorcycles belong to me now, lucky me!

    Attached some pictures of my ladies.... But the are not latest state of play, Bobber got a 180 rear tire in the meantime and the chieftain got some VPerformance Slip Ons, a mustache crashbar an I´m waiting for the KST Apache Hangers to arrive and to install them on my baby...

    Regards from Austria

    Markus

    Thanks for your kind "Hello"!

    Indian is still very exclusive here, and that is good in my opinion, don't like to see same kind of bike several times a day.

    One of a kind is better than one of a million!

    Good news, my Apache Hangers seems to have made trough custom procedere and are ready for pick up at the post office.
    Weather is gonna be realy bad this weekend, so best condition to start installation right tomorrow morning!

    Already read the handlebar swap thread here and feel good prepared for that mission!
