Indian Motorcycle Pre-Launch Press Tour

So, when you will read this, I will be in Kings Mountain, NC ready to meet with the Executive Team of Indian Motorcycle. Thank you for all the comments you made and questions you asked (although some went way off topic) and I will relay your concerns and interrogations. As an introduction to the post(s) I will write when I return, below is the transcript of my Pre-Launch Press Tour invitation.

"On behalf of the entire staff at Indian Motorcycle Company, we welcome you to Kings Mountain, NC. For the two past years, we have been eager to share what we are doing with the motorcycle community. We are thrilled the time has finally come to host you in our factory. We hope you will find the rebuilding of an American Icon as interesting and exciting as we do. Our objective is to provide you with a thorough, in depth look at our company and convey the sense of pride and enthusiasm we feel for our historic brand. We are dedicated to restoring the rich heritage of Indian Motorcycle to its former glory and we greatly appreciate you joining us on this exhilarating journey". Stephen Julius, Chairman Of The Board. Steve Heese, President.

    Hmmmmnn . . . spookily reminiscent of the big build-up to the Excelsior-Henderson rebirth.
    I did get to ride one eventually and apart from their tranny being stiffer to shift than that of a 1932 tractor, they were a nice bike with an original approach. Pity the founding brothers spent too much on oil paintings of themselves for their foyer and naming streets after themselves also.

    For those who do wish to see a successful rebirth of Indian’s honorary name there is a glimmer of hope. The people behind it have successfully rebirthed Chris-Craft, which was established in 1874 and which for many years had the respected status in the boating world that Indian (and Harley-Davidson) held in the biking world. Fingers crossed . . .

    It will be interesting to see if the results of the tour.
    My first question would be?
    Are the Non Disclosure Agreements going to be enforced?
    Or will we finally get an unbiased opinion?

    A tour is not too exciting if the TRUE opinions can’t be expressed, and the hard questions can’t be asked and answered and reported on publicly.
