I just learned today that our new Indian dealership - Off Road Express - will be hosting the demo fleet on Tuesday, October 9 and Wednesday, October 10, 2013. They weren't sure the exact times, but a salesman told me both days it would either start at 11:00 am or 1:00 pm, and run to 5:00.

Good luck getting 300 rides per day! 300 rides divided by 15 bikes = 20 groups. Each group takes 1/2 hour X 20 groups = 10 hours + changeover time. Guess some might be riding late into the night. OR, more likely, 300 rides for the 2 days.

They will most likely use the same 13 mile route as for the Victory demo three weeks ago, which took just over 20 minutes to complete. They stopped the rides at 6:00. 300 riders per day will be pushing it, darn near impossible. Unless they have a change of heart, I don't see them riding past 6:00, as the sun sets around 6:50 those two days, a full 1/2 hr earlier than the Victory demo. With that, they'd have to have 2.5 rides/hr, and that's with no delay in changeovers. Probably not happening. I'll still be there both days.

Biggie, are you planning on being there?
