    I have a 2017 RM, and for interest/curiosity took the 2019 White Smoke Dark Horse for a test ride tonight. Big question is - the throttle return spring on the 2019 is way less compared to my 2017 RM. On my vacation this summer through Montana, Idaho, Washington and back through BC and Alberta...

    When I first saw them, I about had a coronary. Then little by little it started growing on me. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that in the back of my mind was the suspicion that they were replacing our beloved original lineup with the new modern version. Once I realized that it was...

    Out here in Southern California we finally got the Cheiftains. I test rode the bike yesterday and worked the deal today. I am having the mid-rise bars put on before I bring it home. I will be installing the stage 1 and stage 2 kits when they perform the 500 mile service. These new Cheiftains are...

    I'm surprised I haven't seen one post yet. Are they just not there at the dealers yet or is Indian going to have a tough time selling this new design?

    Great review! 2019 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse Review (17 Fast Facts)
  10. Indian Motorcycle General Discussion
    this weekend. Well actually a 2019 Chieftain and a 2018 with the big bore. I haven't had a fairing on a bike in 30 years or a windshield for that matter so take that as a starting point. Also I ride with a full face helmet because of that and I wore it on the test rides (phobia about wearing...

    Picking up a 2019 Chieftain this coming week. My dealer has a Walnut Limited and a Bronze Dark Horse Coming in. He's giving me first choice but having hard time deciding. Originally wanted the Dark Horse but after seeing some pics of the Walnut Limited having second thoughts. Opinions welcome.

    Got a look at the 19 Chieftain and am I UNIMPRESSED.... the new bags are blockish and chunky looking, the fairing reminds me of the HD batwing. The open front fender is ugly to me and I saw the “ruby red” pain.. my god what an ugly color!!! The biggest failure of all is the cheap looking...

    Money and space are no concern, if you had your wish, would you have a Classic Chieftain, a new design Chieftain, or both in your garage?
  18. Indian Chieftain
    So today I had the opportunity to ride the new 2019 Chieftain Limited. Being the proud owner of a 2018 Chieftain Limited, I was disappointed with Indian’s departure from its “unique look.” Nonetheless here are my impressions. The bike handles just like my 2018 which is great! The Chieftain...

    I won't speak for others, but the main issue that some have about this "new" design is not on how it looks, but where the design comes from. It is very obvious that the bikes takes many cues from the Street Glide series which is Harley's most successful line over the years. Copying a competitors...
