I'm a new Springfield owner and love it, but have always known my journey will eventually lead to a Touring bike. I'm kewl with the full wind and bare bones (no dash, radio, etc.) for now but the couch is coming.

At first I really, really didn't like the looks of the Chieftain/Roadmaster, but it has really grown on me. Now if Indian were to give me a Touring bike, I would have a tough time deciding.

Just curious what other Springield owners currently like.
You have a touring bike and need to look no farther. You have a windshield & saddlebags, what else do you need? . All the Motorhome accessories that they put on bikes currently appeal to the smartphone addicted crowd. I ride the Springfield because it DOESN'T have all the Motorhome accessories. They are fine selling points to some but not all.

My wife rides a 2020 Springfield with 22k and I ride a 2020 chieftain with 25k. both bought new. We ride long distance rides every chance we get. neither of us have seen anything else that we like better. Its Just preference.

On the test ride I preferred the Pursuit. When it comes down to signing on the dotted line I would more likely buy another Springfield. Over 40k miles and 25 states in 3 years, It does what I need in comfort with a few hundred dollars in modifications. When I had a bike with a radio I rarely used it. And with the Springfield I would be left with $5k to $10k of traveling funds!

:cry:

Guys.....I have a Springfield Darkhorse, so there's no windshield. I also LOVE my SDH just they way she is!

Buuuuuuuuut, at some point I think I might ALSO want the full on couch. GIven this, I thought it might be fun to see what current Springfield owners might prefer between two Indian options.

I have been shown the error of my ways....and shant offer this group another survey.

Demo Days at your Dealership or a bike rally. Ride both. Ultimately the bike has to do something more for you than your current ride.

I love the PP 108 on my Challenger. Rode a Scout before trading up. Very happy with my decision.

Only YOU can decide what‘s going to push all of Your buttons. 👍
