Indian continues to invest in it's primo display budget, as you would hope from the emerging brand. From the wood floors to the wall hangings, it looked more like their dealerships than a trade show display. The new suite of flat track inspired bikes and their accessory catalog, which is huge, drew the biggest crowd.
Some bikes I'm just drawn too, Freud be dammed.
Another cheap fun bike on my radar is the Genuine G5400c. (Available at Scooterville)
I read story after story about slumping sales and rideship but I think bikes like the FZ09 have cracked open the cheap-fun game. And there's no putting that genie back in it's bottle. Despite the hype, or lack there of, the manufactures are coming out with a huge variety of machines for all tastes and budgets. And I hope for our sake and theirs they sell like hotcakes!
