Living in Europe we don't have the same Native American connection as Americans and riding an Indian Motorcycle is still something special here. So I started looking for some nice items around the theme 'Indians'.
I mean NOT the GENUINE INDIAN MOTORCYCLES accessories in this thread, but what you just like as gadgets / trinkets.
I start with my belt buckle, made in Australia, bought in Belgium second hand for 10 Euro's, and an aluminium plate with an Indian head on it. Got that from my English Friend who bought it for me in England for 30 £.

A few things. No picture of the two dream catchers on my Scout.

Just adding to this to say the Trail Of Tears emblem and knife is what I got at the powwow on that motorcycle ride.
The tiny Dreamcatcher I got at nearby Indian mounds Native American festival. And the large wall-mounted one from a craft show in central Tennessee.
The little arrowhead in a bottle is from Noccalula Falls, named for a Cherokee princess said to have jumped to her death there.

I must have missed something? I grew a beard and moustache and wear a turban whilst riding my Indian in keeping with the theme. Suspect I may have adopted the wrong 'Indian' scenario?

Ha ha! Indeed by using plenty of starch after each ride I don’t have to unwrap it, it just lifts off! Going to have to go back to my stylist and totally rethink this ‘Indian malarkey.’

I'm curious if any of you Pale Faces have asked any REAL American Indians how they feel about you buying up all their memorabilia or maybe even ask Senator Warren, she's the expert on this. I'd like to know since my Wife buys all that stuff too.

My daughter came home from college for spring break after I had purchased my '18 Chieftain and promptly announced my new ride was culturally appropriating. To which I revoked her open invitation to my garage and any outstanding offers to go forma ride.

Good call ! ! ! I'm sure that she's really happy that most St. Patty's Day festivities were canceled too.

Hope we can get some bars open in time for Cinco de Mayo . . .
