Picked up black #748 from Arlen Ness on Saturday. Truly an Indian summer here in the Bay Area. Ness dealership is solid, my first buying experience there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. As a long time HD rider I would say the difference is this: HD is a classic cruiser/tourer with modern features and the new Chieftain is a modern motorcycle with classic cruiser styling. We truly live in the golden age of motorcycles. The Chieftain is polished and intelligently designed. I'm going to love riding this bike over next few years. Congratulations Polaris - mission accomplished. Indian is back for good and I proudly have the 748th one.
