Check List for relaunch: 1- release the same bike no one bought in 2003. 2- hope no one notices. 3- build hype based on nothing. 4- close doors and let Indian die a peaceful death.

When Dave Wright was in charge of this re-launch I had a 2 hr conversation with him about all the mistakes the CMC factory made when they re-launched. Well, Dave moved on (or was forced out) and things look exactly like I predicted if he or his bosses didn't listen to people that bought the bikes in the first place. Sorry Indian- RIP is the easiest way out.

There's already an excellent Indian motorycle.

You wanna' drag that thing outside? it's starting to stink
It was made by Kawasaki and called the Drifter. If I wanted a bike that looked like a classic Indian I'd buy one of those. I certainly wouldn't toss 20 large on a Harley clone or even a Harley. Well actually if I wanted to spend 20K on a bike it'd be one of them there high end Ducks.

Never mind.

Who needs Indian when you can have a Chang Jiang, the next big thing...30's technology covered with 2007's lead based paint. Just don't tell it to Mattel.

If I was going to take a plunge into the deep end of questionable reliability and parts availability I'd by a Ural Patrol and use it for Stoli runs...
