    Me too, IF I were to buy a brand new bike it would be between the RM & the Yami venture transcontinental. Neither come close on storage space but short of a car nothing does. He’s got the best of both worlds having a RM for trips & the Magnum for day trips, congratulations again, your living right!!! I hadn’t realized the RM’s front forks are old school right side up telescopic, do they have any type of adjustment & is the rear shock an air type or have any adjustability?

    Over the years, the Vision owners on this forum love the bike. Wider so a better seat than that on the CC&CCT. Can’t beat the legroom on these two models too. The Indian dimensions and ride stature is that of a Harley. To attract the Hog riders to switch over. I rode a Chieftain lent to me by the owner, the shop manager of Reno Cycles in 2015 while I was having new tires installed. I found the seating position to be upright and much less roomy compared to the CCT, the dash much closer like the Electraglide but the quiet shifts impressed me. But that was 6 years ago though I doubt any physical changes have been made. Those were my impressions at that time. Although the front fenders have been altered from the traditional valenced style for some models, it’s an Indian and should wear those valenced fenders, like them or not. One striking change Polaris made after purchasing the Kings Mountain builder was dropping the upside down teardrop headlamp. I really liked that touch. It instantly identified the bike as an Indian if looked at face on. And unlike the Wild West, the Indian killed the Victory, just like they killed Custer and his conscripted army. :sick1:

    That upside down head light would be a hit on the Springfield.

    Yes it has an air shock just like the Magnum and Vision has . Came with a nice little Indian branded air pump. The rear shock has a Fox label on it so I guess it was made by Fox. I don't think there are any adjustments on the forks .The trunk is actually bigger than the Visions, saddlebags about the same as the Magnums far as room goes. I might eventually get the extended reach seat to give me a little more legroom but Darn that thing is expensive , $1200.00 !!!

    Indian chieftain - Harley Ultra
    I can tell you from owning all 3 the indian sitting position is equivalent to Harleys. If your over 6’1” the chieftain in any form is gonna be a bit tight for you. They do make a seat that sits you 2” farther back which I’m sure would help someone taller. Balance and feel IMO indian and Vic neck and neck Harleys last. Ride quality I gotta go indian Vic Harley. One thing I could do on my Vic and indian is upright it off the stand without touching the Handlebars. My Harleys grab bars with both hands and heave Ho just my experience with a few miles put on them. Fit and finish Harleys got that but indian is running a tight 2nd now.

    It was a poor decision to ditch it but it's not my company.

    Bout $30k lighter now, maybe’s letting the bank hold the title for 3-6 years while he test rides it.

    I don't think I would ever pay 30k for a bike, way too much money for a motorcycle in my opinion. Mine is a used 17 model with 10000 miles and half the price of a new one. I paid 20k for the Magnum new and that's about my limit for a bike. Hopefully at my age I'll not ever need another new one. Wife would kill me if I paid that much for a bike.

    @Bikesofbrads im to that point to. Bought my limited 1 year old new. That’s the best I’ll do anymore. But a couple year old garage or trailer queen even better. Mine stickers at 27g then I got it for $21g. Same way when I bought my Magnum. Sticker $23 I paid $18 year old new.
