    This is actually good. Some other notable Indian Chiefs in the past that were also CEO’s of ther companies were E Paul DuPont and Ralph B Rogers. Maybe now they’ll sell more bikes with US Bank doing the financing……..

    Crazy Kiwi is correct, banks and lawyers are thieving parasites!

    I hope he brings biker mentality (ethics) to the bank and not banker mentality back to Polaris!

    It’s kinda refreshing to see a motorcycle company CEO that looks like he has actually sat on a bike before =).

    Bob S. Hopes that he brings a “biker mentality” back to polaris. However, I see he has a way to go…checkout the slacks and shoes.

    Does anyone actually believe there’s a “biker mentality” even in the MC industry’s CEOs anymore? All that counts is a business mentality, does anyone think the CEO of a condom company has to be a horndog or the head of Pepsico only lives on soda, fast foods and snack chips?

    He would look much better in a pair of J Adler motorcycle boots! But seriously it is nice to see a CEO that knows the business!
