No, she doens't mock me. She just prefers the bigger bikes. To be honest, I'm looking at trading my Scout for a Chief myself. After riding hers I kicked my self for not buying one.
That’s understandable!

So, I bit the bullet this past Saturday and willfully got pressured into trading my Scout in for a Chief. Now I have a new 2018 Chief Dark Horse. Got a good deal on it considering it is the third bike we've bought from this dealer. Couldn't be happier! Well...once I add a windshield and driving lights I will be, but you get the idea. :-)

Current Bikes:
2018 Indian Chief Classic
2018 Indian Chief Dark Horse

Past Bikes:
2017 Indian Scout
2006 Yamaha Roadliner
2006 Suzuki Boulevard C50

Cool, congrats! Just went to Inidian website and tried their custom build tool - pretty awesome. Didn't like the MSRP though lol

Holy cow!! Yeah...no. I wanted just a plain Jane model so I bought a new leftover from 2018. It was just under $18,000 after everything was said and done. Their Chieftan models are way too expensive for me. That and too many gadgets and distractions. I like my rides simple. Like me.

Mine is on the right. The wife's is on the left.

Nice looking rides you've got there!

I was just playing with their website, they seem to be on par with HD pricewise. I like my bikes simple too that's why I went with RK, but still added intake, exhaust and torque cam later. Looking forward to meeting you in Sep. Ride safe and keep the rubber down!

We still plan on attending the get together this September if that's ok. We'll just be riding a couple of different horses.

Picked up a Chieftain Limited last year. Best bike I have owned bar none.
