History
The bike was sold new by Mall of Georgia Indian Motorcycle (Buford GA) in February 2018 and sold back to them two years later with 2,068 miles on the odometer. I bought it two weeks later, with only rear spools and passenger seat/pegs added... so I had a relatively blank canvas to work with.
I had MOGIM install driving lights, mustache bar, oil cooler, high flow intake (all factory bits), Kuryakyn heel shifter with Indian peg, and Rinehart mufflers with "Merge" tips.

...got her home to Indiana,
601540


...rode out to show her off to a friend,
601541


...and added Kuryakyn taillight strips and "Spear" brake peg, factory shift peg (to complement the heel peg), and a little fringe (mudflaps and leather lever wraps).
601542


I eventually removed the rear seat
632848


...and added Kuryakyn "Scythe" mirrors, a handlebar bag (Fox Creek Leather's "soft tool bag") and a wingman. 8 )

One year after acquiring it, I could not be happier with this bike! (well, maybe someday when I can afford the Boss Bags I want... and a stage 3 kit!)

Happy trails!

I'm loving this bike! She's a looker, sounds great, comfortable and fun to ride... I just could use a little more cowbell! (...previous bike was a Triumph Rocket III Touring. That thing did have some grunt!)

Looks awesome!!! Bags, windshield, pegs, backrest, etc. Will give a another great look. I have it all. And I never can make up my mind on how I want the dark horse to look. My chieftain stays rigged out the same always.

Looks awesome!. I've got the passenger seat and sissy off mine now. Just put new touring tires and fixed all recalls. The trim is plastic and will crinkle over time. Indian isn't replacing it with real chrome. Just the same plastic. So the dealer is having a hard time moulding it to the bike.
