Looks really nice! I actually like the leather bags and seats. Anyone know if you can get black leather instead of the brown?

Anybody know if the bags have a hidden lock or if they are not to put your jacket in and walk away? I understand thaey are leather cover hard bags so thought there might be a lock somewhere.

If you look close it looks like there is the typical squeeze latch on the bags. If there is a lock somewhere they hid it really well.

I do not know just yet if there is any form of lock on the leather bags. I do know that Indian has thought of a lot of things like this. The Chieftain actually has remote lock and unlock for their hard bags.

2014 Indian Chieftain Bag Removal

The Chieftain also has a Power Windscreen! Whaaaa?!?!
So how much do Indian pay you to make all these posts Nick?
It is a nice machine but if you are working for Indian which certainly seems the case with all your professional photos, it's not kosher to pretend to be an enthusiast, and say it even has this feature!, and that feature!!! And a set of steak knives!!!

It is called spam and it would seem you are a spammer.

We're trying our best to start writing reviews and posting specs of all the new motorcycle models that come out. We were out riding and we happen to run into this Indian on the road. This was a one in a million chance and Nick and I were blown away. Since we have first hand experience with this bike it creates a bit more excitement then a normal motorcycle. Posting stats can sometime get boring :)

I don't get paid a single thin dime for making these posts about Indian Motorcycles, but if you happened to see the first one on the streets, then meet the guy who is riding it, who happens to be Indian's "External Relations Manager," giving you access to a whole slew of official information, you would sit on it? You wouldn't be excited that you, an enthusiast out on his bike, ran into something that only a handful of people have seen up close to this degree?

The photos are official Indian photos yes. The ones in the thread that I linked above are mine. And they would be a hell of a lot better if I had my actual camera with me instead of my phone. The photos would have been similar to this or this, or if you prefer this. To my knowledge, we are here to share information, and have a great time doing it. Like 4Nines said, we had a one in a million chance of spotting this thing, and it opened a door that we are stoked on, so I took a lot of my time and posted that info up here in a clear and professional manner so that the community could be richer for it. I could have simply put a photo up and said, "Hey check it! We saw an Indian today, and the dude was nice." Nothing more than a simple click (maybe) would be given to it, and then forgotten with the passing of an hour. Instead I dissected the press release to give those who are interested some info that is digestible.

No harm, no foul. We are all just enthusiasts here, and like to get out on two wheels to leave the worries of the rat race behind. A brotherhood if you will. Do you wave at every automobile driver you see on the street when you are driving your cage? I think not. People would think you rather peculiar if you did. Not so on a motor bike.
