The legend has returned and its splash is sure to reverberate from Main Street all the way to Juneau Avenue in Milwaukee. The new generation of American V-Twin cruisers made its grand debut in front of a crowd of thousands of enthusiasts and dignitaries at the Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame Saturday night.......
For those who worried Polaris would severely alter the legend, fear not: the new 2014 Indians harken back to a bygone era of motorcycling.

My great grandfather rode an Indian when he was a surveyor in the upper peninsula of Michigan in the early 20s.
I had an uncle that did too. We didn't even know he was gay.
My dad said his brother picked him up from kindergarten on an Indian in 1928.
I first asked him what happened to the bike, then I asked where he sat.
He said on the gas tank. He didn’t know what happened to the bike.
Starting at $18,900. I can dream.
I’m in East York, PA, with a massive Harley-Davidson plant just 4 miles away, and HD dealers all over the area.
Years on bikes..... Reason I sold my last motorcycle:
Seconds after passing a parking lot exit, an old person pulled out in front of the guy behind me.
Seconds difference and it would’ve been me.
I looked up and said “God, I got the message, thanks”.
My motorcycle is a 1964 Fiesta with a 1960 Gale 60 HP...
But that is one sweet looking bike.
Can't help but think this will be anything but a winner. People pay big bucks for genuine Indians. Now, people can get a similar looking bike without being ridiculously wealthy.
Now, I hope they start emulating the models from the 20's and 30's...that would be sweet.
I as well had an Uncle who owned an Indian (motorcycle)...He wasn't gay...
A couple of years ago, we were about to depart Minnesota for home in Kalifornia - by way of Rapid City so we could see Rushmore and a new route.
The night before we left I saw a blurb on the motel's TV about Sturgis and quickly rerouted us straight south to Oklahoma City.....there was no way I was gonna compete with 400,000 bikes for gas, food and lodging.
Oh my, that is good!
Something else that started in Springfield MA, but has gone on to better pastures. They tried to bring them back years ago, building them here.
I always liked the look of those old bikes.
We still have a bunch in our newest museum:
Nice looking bike. My Dad used to own an Indian when he was younger.
I’m just waiting for someone to complain its racist for people to say they “ride an Indian” and starting demanding that the company change its name.
Yeah, I like keeping my bones inside my body too.
