They danced all around it and used lots of words to drag it out... but basically the Indian dominated.11069 said:It seemed to me he was struggling to maintain neutral language for both brands throughout. I felt it was a pretty fair review even considering that.
I'd go for that....and my money is on the Xroads all the way. A lot of bike for the money, and will out handle and corner them both WITHOUT any upgrades. Even with a Lloydz treatment and 120+ hp, it would be less than a stock Indian.4902 said:I'd like to see a comparo with a Road King, a Chief Vintage, and a Cross Roads. With a twist. We've all seen comparo's between stock bikes and in each and every one they have to say something nice about each bike. Ok fine, been there done that. So how about take the three bikes mentioned, well, maybe next year for the Chief, and give the tester 3 grand to spend on upgrades for each. I don't know about most, but isn't this what an awful lot of us are going to regardless of brand? Show me what my end result will most likely be, then I'll be better informed.
Not all HD riders are ' posers ' I happen to know a few who ride and also like the branded gear.1424 said:What I like best about Indian, it's not a Harley and you don't belong to a lifestyle of posers displaying all of the branded junk like belts, wallets, shoes, do rags, helments, his and her purses et al.

Im in the UK, and we hav'nt got the bikes yet, ive just sold my harley custom V Rod, and want something old school, but with the mondern twist (ie brakes, goes, well suspended) I do a lot of my riding with the Mrs on pillion.

Many Thanks e-setter
