    Figured it would be interesting and put things into perspective to have them all in one place. I'll be updating this as more records and accomplishments are made, please let me know if I've missed any. I've left out individual AFT wins as it would consume the entire page. I've also left out records set by previous generations of Indian as this is more or less meant to be a summary of records set by the Spirit Lake generation models.

    Great idea of all in one thread. Might suggest it be made a sticky at some point.
