    I have an idea: you don’t inherit items from people that live.

    Got my tire changed at the local Indian dealer Friday, they have 4 new bikes on the floor. They can't get bikes, getting a couple a month! If Indian can't start getting parts to build bikes they won't have much choice but to shut down. I don't know how the dealers are keeping the doors open.

    Service and being a multi brand dealer also helps. You should see our local HD dealer. Lowest inventory I’ve ever seen. Lots of used bikes on the lot but who wants a used (someone else’s problem)Harley……


    Now the wigwam here ? They just got Ducati added. With BMW and yamaha plus ATV and watercraft you can say there a power sports super store. Funny though …. Polaris didn’t want Indian to compete with Victory.

    No problem BP, it was 35 years ago. He was a good bloke, a diesel fitter from England, who had the shits with Thatcher era England, sold his Triumph Trident and Bonneville and headed off overland to Oz. He ran into an old friend of mine in India, who in between bonking his brains out (he was about 15 years younger than her), told him to look me up when he reached Oz.
    He arrived at Obi Obi on the Honda 750 he bought to tour around on. We hit it off well, he helped with my old Massey Ferguson tractor, stayed for 2 months before his last midnight ride. Cops rang me the next morning, asked me to go identify the body. I rang his parents in England, arranged the funeral, sent his ashes and personal effects back to them.
    A few of us would stop at the bend and say g'day every now and again. Rupert Atkins, good bloke, still remembered.

    You have to hand it to H-D for finding enough suckers in the pond to sell this model to. Just what some really want. A 52 year old' new' bike with a different engine. Price is in Cdn dollars.

    Back in 1968, I was a summer student working in the packaging plant of the local Imperial Oil refinery. There was a fork lift operator who bought a red one just like this one in the article except for the engine a that time. The guys were lamenting that it cost him $2500! “Hey, you could buy a car for that money!” Same as now!
