    Believer 45,
    What are you riding?

  5. 5 Believer 45 Jan 9th, 2009 at 12:22 am

    What’s the difference Greenwald…….it really doesn’t matter what you ride….as long as you happy with what you got.

    I know where you are going with this…..don’t bother wasting your time…….or mine.

    You know nothing about where am going with this Believer 45. There is not a bike on the market that is new or used that seems worth the price anymore. I think your ratio of two to one on value of the bike versus value of the dollar for everything is a good assessment. I was prepared to offer a comparison of the overpice of your current ride to what you consider to be an overprice of the Indian. You come across as a snide detractor with nothing to back it up. I hope it isn’t because of the economy that you have had to sell your ride and cannot afford to ride at all. If that is the case, all bikes are overpriced. Tearing down Indian or any other brand because of your personal poverty benefits no one.

    In several comments on this thread and others, you sound like an embittered old matronly bitch. I somehow don’t think you are and offer my condolences that this is what life has turned into for you.

    If, perhaps, this is not the case, I offer you a chance at your own redemption and would suggest that you take a path of constructive critque and criticism rather than snide, sophomoric witticisms.

    I credit you with knowledge and intelligence following the old adage, “never pick a fight with an old guy because he’ll just kill you.”

    That being said, use that knowledge and intelligence to proffer your insights and solutions rather than coming across as something or someone lesser.

    ” interestinger and interestinger…..” ??????

    If I bought one, that’s what I’d do: ride it home from the factory. Buy a new bike and have a vacation at the same time. What could be better?

  9. 9 rodent Jan 9th, 2009 at 10:20 am

    This is the most exciting news since stoneage man invented the wheel!

    Greenwald…………u are your own worst enemy.

    You thrive on your own ignorance.

    I may be an sour old man that has nothing better to do than to sit here and bullshit with you………..but you are nothing but an old naggin hag that has seen her better days…….

    Your so called “advice” and or “opinon” sounds like one of the old episode of the Golden Girls. So keep them to your own self……….I don’t give a flying rats ass.

    Stop eating so much shit………….it’s not good for you.

    Good looking bikes. Hope they make it this time. Also a good idea to have a fly in tour the plant and ride home program. In business if your not sturring the water you are sitting still. Good luck Indian.

    I bet believer 45 rides a harley and is just pissed he won’t be able to afford an Indian.

    Believer 45
    I am glad that you can relate to your riding buds and sexual partners “The Golden Girls”. Considering their current state, I would guess that you are quite a hit stirring the ashes.

    Question . Is this a ploy to develop a factory direct market and leave out a dealer network which is not yet materializing. Any new dealers ( when they materialize) ,can they then be bipassed and have the customer go to the factory direct? Is the flagship store really a first factory store? Are the new markets (major cities) all going to be secretly factory owned? Is Bruce Rossmeir really a Bruce Harley or Bruce Davidson? Are there aliens living amongst us? Remember , ” Fight piles of trials with smiles for it riles them to believe you perceive the web they weave”.

    I don’t think that is the intention here. More likely they are trying to do what Corvette does. Allow the buyer to come to the factory and see how these bikes are made then pick up your bike and ride home. If ran like the corvette program the bike would have to be purchased from your local dealer and paid in full before you can pick it up at the factory. As far as Indian not having dealers I think your wrong, there are a lot of Harley,Big dog, Victory as well as many other bike shops willing to take on the Indian line. I wish them well. I have always likes the style of these bikes and I believe they will help revive this industry. The more the merrier. GOOD LUCK INDIAN

    Some new Corvette buyers like being able to see the factory when the go to pick theirs up. It’s a neat deal. BMW and Ducati dealers can also make it possible for customers to pick up their new bikes at the factory, and people have also done this when they bought a new Porsche or Ferrari.

    By the way, when I looked at the Indian site, the lightest model I saw had a dry weight of 723 pounds.

    sweet bikes for sure..way to go for doing the Indian name justice!

    It’s hard to forgive the hell my one and only Indian “incarnation” gave me. It was a year of stalls in traffic, pushes down deserted roads at midnight, and scraped knuckles. That being said, Indian continues to rise from the grave, and this incarnation may be their final chance to return to the glory days. I like the look of this bike. Maybe we need to return to this type of production because quality control has seemingly gone the way of banking ethics in most brands. I say good luck to Indian and if they get on their feet once and for all – the prices will return to the “sane” range.
