    After I left the dealer today I stopped for a burger at a little bar n grill. Bumped into a couple guys I've known for years in the area. The one guy asked if I was still riding that nice looking white bike he saw last I bumped into him. The other guy said it looked like a nice new Indian...had to set him straight!

    One rides an awesome 70's Shovel he airbrushed himself that is seriously old school, the other a 1990 electro with the 88 cube. As we talked bikes, power, upgrades etc. They asked me to pull up the dealer site. Went through some of the models, the gravitated to the Magnums and Vegas, one liked the Gunner. And once again if anyone from Polaris reads these...asked where the Kingpins were and sat jaws dropping why they no longer make them!

    They saw the pricing and damn near fell off the barstools. Then we talked upgrade and cost and power gains etc.

    Then they asked me if I'd go to the dealer with them. I said sure, maybe next weekend when it's dry and it'll be 16 degrees...balmy enough for a good test ride or three.

    I still crack up over the Indian comment. I swear one day I'm gonna drop the tank badge and plaster a removable vinyl Indian sticker in its place just to screw with people.

    Alright. If we can get em to sit still for a minute or two and listen, then they will come along for the ride (pun intended). Good work.

    Damn, having it being called an Indian ain't too bad but when someone on a Harley right beside you at a set of lights asks if your XCT is a "V" rod, then you may chuckle a little..... :angel4:

    Too funny! I have had at least 6 people think my Pin was an Injun. Cracks me up every time! But calling an CCT a V-Rod? Shows the guy has no clue about bikes whatsoever and should be banished to riding a Bergman!

    Maybe I won't put a badge back on the tank with the new paint. See what kind of stuff people come up with!

    Think they'll still take that trip with you being Vic announced they're done?

    Might get a great deal but may have a hard time finding support.

    Id love a X1 but I don't believe that is going to happen.
