I think you'll be hard pressed to find another forum that has as much information and open conversations about the new Indians and us as friendly as this one. Yes there are others out there but the few I've visited have a Harley-style attitude or are more interested in the older Indians than they are the new models.

I'll add that Andy and his staff have done an excellent job in providing information on the new models and making a post such as this one is a bit disrespectful.

No disrespect intended, Norcal, and I have no idea who the 'Andy' you refer to is. I 'assumed', and we all know the consequences of that, that this was somehow Victory or Polaris created. I have no idea. That's why I asked the question. Disrespectful to ask a question in a pleasant way? LOL

Thanks Tin_Whiskers. I'm just curious as a new, and proud, Indian Motorcycle owner. :) This Forum, I will say, is very good. I particularly like the 'pleasant' environment. Thanks again.

Andy is the creator, maintainer, and moderator of the VOG. It is not part of, established by, or supported by Polaris. It's a privately owned and operated site. I think we all can see how no disrespect was meant, but it is kinda like walking into a Chevy dealer and asking if anyone knows where you can buy a Ford. Nothing wrong with wanting a Ford and nothing wrong with reading and posting on multiple sites. But, it is kind of an etiquette thing, going on one site and asking where to find what is in effect a competitors site.

wheres the disrespect?? Andy has said it many times....ALL ARE WELCOME
Has nothing to do with the Indian side of this thread, it was in reference to asking about locating a different forum board to go to.
Honestly, it was 'no harm no foul' in my book, but that's where it came from.
I personally have a feeling that the Indians will have every bit as much traffic on this site as the Cross Bikes have....I also think the Indian conversation will be very welcome here. It just won't be Indian exclusive.

Here is a brief bio of the infamous 'Andy', the Gadget Guru, Pargh.

My favorite Today Show video of Andy shows him doing a 'face plant' while attempting to do a slalom ski take off from the beach.
I used to waterski and I know that a slalom ski beach start is not easy, but I still had to laugh.


I also note that Katie seems to 'light up' whenever Andy was on the show.
Hmm?

Yes, one of my more graceful moments on live TV! In my defense, we rehearsed the beach start three times without incident. But when we went 'live,' that was a different story:

Thanks for the kind words. And, I do like motorcycles! Here's a segment I've posted on the site previously, but it was the first motorcycle segment I did for Today (1994) and it was about Harley-Davidson coming back from the brink of bankruptcy and returning to the top of the heavyweight cruiser business:
