    Huh? Are you sure you had an FTR 1200?

    Methinks Harley riders hate Indians more than Jappers.

    I'm still digging the FTR1200, but FFS can't they do something about that exhaust. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eTx3ducaLw

    Why would they? It's the first thing most people change these days.

    ^ That's a pretty good summary. I like the old school fork rake on the Indian even if its means its not so sharp to ride.

    I was thinking the same thing. And I reckon it might have 18 inch hoops too. Looks a bit like the early model Guzzi Le Mansí in that regard. Whether itís handling is up to the standard of the legendary Tonti frames remains to be seen, as Indians are not exactly noted for their ability to build sports bikes but wríll Wait and see I guess

    not at all, I see Indian motorcycles as a backup, if Harley stoped trading and I don't know Aliens stole all the old Harley's, id buy an Indian first before a japper.

    I stand corrected. 18/19 wheels - same dimensions as Jap superbikes up until the mid 80s

    Ever changed the oil on a Guzzi LM? The filter is inside the sump. Thatís right you have to pull the fucking sump off to get to it. Mario tells me he had a bloke came in to buy some oil one day. When he asked him if he wanted a filter as well he said ď nah mate - my bike hasnít got one..Ē

    Are we there yet?
    Can't be too long now, this is probably another pre-production prototype.
