Apologies if you read this (cough) elsewhere (cough)... Fairly solid word from my dealer that Indian informed them today that future Chieftain models, not just the Elite/Limited models will come with the larger front wheel and non-skirted fender. Now, I have some difficulty with this, as it would seem to diminish the value of the special editions if the open fender wasn't an exclusive feature. But speaking strictly for me, the lack of the traditional skirted fender, complete with lighted Warbonnet would come close to being a deal-breaker. OR, at the least would aim me to the used market. Thoughts? Confirmation? Disproof?
