    Hi to all.
    I have just ordered a new Indian Challenger in Deep water blue. Which I hope to pick up at the end of next week.

    I have been into motorcycles since 1983 and always has at least one on the road.
    I have toured around Europe a number of times on various bikes, Suzuki RF900, Aprilia futura RST and for the last couple of years on a Vespa GTS300.
    The change to an Indian was an easy one for me. I decided to have a new bike a couple of years ago and started to save. This year I well be 54 and work had changed for me , which will give me more free time.
    My best friend moved over to Harley a couple of years ago. And I was luck to be invited to ride with them on a couple of times,.
    After having a test ride on a Harley street glide I wanted to try the Indian Cheftain, which I did, the difference were amazing. Then the Challenger came on a demo test ride a a local Indian dealer so I just had to have a go.
    Well that just was amazing, like riding a sports bike but with comfort, so last week I went and put a deposit down .
    Now I have to find some new Friends in the Indian club to ride with as I don't think the Harley group would like me turning up on a Challenger.
