    Howdy y'all,
    It's been a awhile. Was a heck of a summer. Rode everyday (while it was 100°+. Was on a way to an event east of Dallas, when while riding with a friend, served to miss a bad spot in the road. Was forced back into it by oncoming car. It happened so fast, I can't explain it. My brother said it sounded like a car hit me. We were runn'in bout 70mph. Bike felt OK at first. Then front end got heavy, made a right turn to find a place to stop and bike went into a wobble.
    Stopped to investigate and noticed the front tire was flat. Then spotted a crack in wheel by a spoke. So, we got a trailer and took it to Fort Worth dealership, great people.
    It took some time to get it fixed (course the weather got nice).
    They found that the top cap on fork has been blown out and and stripped the fork leg. That was the easy part, lol.
    Indian had sent them new front wheel 3 -4 times. All defective, (WTF). They showed me the wheels with quality control stickers on them.
    Anyway finally got it back and riding ever since. If anyone tries to tell y'all the necks are breaking on the new Indian's, tell them that's BS cause of there was ever a time the mech shoulda broke, that was it! Not me or the mechanics can figure out how or what happened, but given the circumstances, the Challenger handled it very well.
    Y'all ride safe!
