Here's a link to a Dealernews Editorial by Rick Fairless about Polaris's acquisition of Indian Motorcycles:

I hope Rick is right about how it goes with Indian. HD should definitely be worried about losing market share.

A local HD shop owner here recently (about 2 months ago) bought an XC and then later sold his Electra Glide because he would get on it after riding the XC and drag the floorboards too much. He was use to the handling and lean angle of the Vic.

It says a lot when someone like that switches over.

The iconic Indian brand may be what brings a lot more HD riders over if they are as reliable and powerful as the Victory's.
