Looks sweet, a Road Glide challenger! It's your colour too! Did you order one? Just teasing :)

Nah, I got too much invested on my current RG. I’ll be sitting on it when I go to the IMS in NYC next month though.... and most likely will demo ride it next year...but that is as far as I go :biglaugh:

Not sure what a Challenger would get you that you don't already have with your Road Glide.

Not much, except go faster (which is not important to me) and I’m pretty sure the Challenger handles much better....Indian still needs to work on their dealer network and I can mod the RG anyway I want with the plethora of aftermarket options....I just love to demo bikes and dream if I would own it if I was rich :grin2:

I like the red for sure. Bike looks nice. But, my mind is already made up for the next bike in 10 years.

Yes and they are quite expensive too. I would buy the brand new Indian Challenger if I could afford it.
huh, a Challenger Limited cost more than a Road Glide Special

People complain about Harley prices but then Polaris sucked people in with Victory which was pricey, dropped the line, and then came out with an even pricier brand.

Don't take our silence as agreement.
Our mammas taught us......never argue with a fool. Lol. ;-)
That was cute :wayhappy:

First of all you wouldn't need a bigger bike because you ride local between 35-45mph.
Secondly you have 2 riders so you need 2 bikes probably supported on a fixed income. If I had to buy 2 bikes I'd probably not ride so......ride that C50 like you stole it!

Mostly correct sir!
I like Victory. I suppose I'm one of the few whom wishes Victory was kept and Indian went away. It just seems like many of the Victory bikes have an appeal to me. Not so for Indian.
Now as far as H-D, yes price is a big factor......maybe someday.....maybe. :)

Loved my Victory also, 75k no major problems, started every time. The Victory V crash bars held up well in the accident also!
