Test rode the Indian Chieftain today (took two demo rides). After riding Goldwing/Roadsmith trike for the last two years it felt real good to get back on two wheels. The Chieftain is made for us short legged riders (I'm 5' 8”). Plenty low enough to flat foot and well balanced. In the low position it's easy to see over the windshield and with the windshield up it will be easy to thwart any winds that might normally turn your head into a bubble head doll. I rode two different Chieftains. One I didn't feel real comfortable on seat wise but it rode well with no vibration unfortunately both mirrors were loose and wouldn't tighten up. The second bike was more comfortable seat wise but had some vibration to it through the floorboards which went away when I went into the next gear. The first bike had the riders back rest on it so I was interested in finding out how getting on and off the bike would be (piece a cake) fold the backrest over, throw your leg over and tip it up and sit down. I was very pleased with the sound of the standard mufflers. On the second ride is where I got to find out about power (I got to hang back and play catch up), just as good as the Goldwing for sure. Radio was turned on the second machine so before we left I cued in my station and cracked up the tunes some, sounded good enough for me. The radio's probably just fine and you should be able to upgrade speakers without much problem (especially if your a DIY guy). Two cons would be lousy LCD screen display and the kickstand is a little hard to reach but with some practice (and maybe an extender for some of you) be just fine. Overall it give the Chieftain and A but no plus (won't stop me from buying one). It's a very nice machine. For a first year run Polaris did very well.
