    All bets are many of us will not be buying a new M/C in 2017 as the world hangs on a slender thread and consumer confidence diminishes across all sectors . Unfortunately .

    Without Victory available Harley jumps to the top of my list and Indian is off the table completely. I’m very interested in giving the new K1600B a look though. If it has a trunk with comfortable passenger accommodations it might give the Road Glide Ultra a run for my money.

    A slender thread ? is the sky falling as well, the beat goes on.
    It is such early days, one needs clarity not despair .Logic not tears.
    And a Dyna with an 8 vlave engine 😉

    Well, that’s pretty gloomy mate. We better just make the best of the year we got, there isn’t much we can do if shit truly hits the fan anyways.

    Those new bikes are unfortunately out of my budget, but maybe I can pick up a more recent secondhand for cheap with so many great new bikes!

    Hey James j.a.c.k . Hate to be the bearer of bad news but there’s nary a tear to be found . That is logic based on evidence and fact not unrealistic promises , reality distortion and alt right alternative facts . e.g ; If they aint no jobs , they aint no money and if they aint no money they aint nobody buyin . And they aint ! Cars or M/C’s . Economics 101 .

    Por moi in light of the Motor Company’s waffling on the facts in the pursuit of corporate cronyism ? Make it a K1600B for me baby . Being the much despised ‘ elite ‘ that I am 😎

    BobS…We know each other from another dedicated to Victory’s and I say that I traded in my CC for a Chieftain in 2015 and I would recommend anybody looking at a Harley-Davidson take an Indian for a test ride before you sign any paperwork. Polaris isn’t going to dump the Indian brand anytime soon. BTW I won’t say how much I paid for my Chieftain but it was below sticker and it was new.

    Negativity breeds nagativity. This country was not founded by a bunch of fraidy cats but it has bred some. Prices will always be what the markets will bear.

    Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we might not die.

    BobS – if you want something that retains some character then why not try Moto Guzzi as well.

    BM’s are staggering good machines, but clinically so and to me the touring twins (eg R1200RT), had more of a soul. However the K1600B(-agger) is an interesting concept – perhaps it is the new ‘Valkyrie’.

    Personally I would not kick the Polaris V-Twin into touch totally. The Roadmaster is expensive – but it is al lot of real-estate; I would certainly like to give one a try.

    The Polaris Scout (the bigger bro) is a good deal (it has a few flaws – but easy to fix). Now Polaris must just make it lighter.

    The Chiefs are good – rode a Dark one (with apes) last year and it is solid thing (as in you can grow old with it). I am still not sure what to use as a benchmark vs HD though – the Fat Bob or the Fat Boy? Both these HD’s are well priced and the 103 TC’s are not far off (the Fat Bob is very competitive here). If HD wedges the Milwaukee 8 into an upgraded Dyna chassis – the have the Polaris Chief smoked…

    PS: PB Zappa – do us all a favor and stick to the Clinton News Network, this is a dedicated motorcycle site, will remain such even after the great apocalypse and during it.

    With the departure of Victory so goes the end of America producing a value focused full sized cruiser it would appear unfortunately.

  10. 10 rebel Feb 3rd, 2017 at 9:42 am

    i think the new 8 valve engine will be in every Harley big twin next year, so i would hold out unless buying a touring model, harley won’t produce 3 different big engines long.

  11. 11 BobS Feb 3rd, 2017 at 11:30 am

    Siegfried & BlkBkr, appreciate the comments. As for an M8 in a Dyna chassis, probably nothing of interest to me. I still have my Victory Kingpin which with mild engine mods still blows away anything available from Milwaukee or Spirit Lake. I got my cruiser. But last summer I sold off my Vision in anticipation of something newer and better for my 2-up touring bike. The Vision is the most comfortable touring bike I’ve owned, and it handled very well, but this is where my desire for newer / better resides. When it comes to Indian, there’s no changing my mind. I’ve ridden them all and they’re nice bikes. I don’t particularly care for the looks though and Polaris will never out Harley Harley. So if I’m going to go old lineage heritage traditional looking machine…Harley is where it’s at. Indian will be dead again in 5-10 anyway. I kinda forgot about Guzzi, will look at them for a touring option but from what I’m seeing so far I think the RG has the comfort I’m looking for and the Beemer has the engine and handling I’m looking for. As with my old Vision I’ll probably demo them both and whichever the wife say’s she’s most comfortable on, I’ll buy that one.

    I like donuts.

    To the angry X- -Victory owner Indian will be around well beyond the ten year prediction you made, as for the M8, a Shetland pony (4 short legs) on stilts (8 legs) is still a Shetland pony. If you want to run fast on the range move forward to an Indian. Going back to a Harley is just that “going back.”

    Don’t mind paying a little more for a motorcycle
    that I don;t have to sink $3000 to $5000.00 to make it run correctly !
    Even with the new Yamaha / Milwaukee 8!
    Just a new filter & Slip-Ons will do & if I feel like it the hotter cams.
    That’s all !!!

  15. 15 Bob Feb 4th, 2017 at 12:36 am

    I might think about buying a Indian if they would get rid of those but ass ugly fender skirts!!

  16. 16 Kent Feb 4th, 2017 at 10:47 am

    Your wish for new fenders will be granted, check out Daytona bike week 2017!

    Indian maybe a nice motorcycle, but It don’t ride or look like a StreetGlide OR have really anything accessory wise to put on it. I ride a 2014 Roadking CVO 110 , the best motorcycle I have ever rode / owned.
    Indian has some credibility to earn now, after F’n up the Victory line for the last 5 years.

  18. 18 hark Feb 6th, 2017 at 10:38 am

    I am one who rides long distance…1500 miles out of the State of Florida during the summer months. I will not risk buying anything other then a Harley…there is always a place to get them fixed if help is needed. Since I am over 50 miles from home..my toeing is also free.

    lol ok

    While it’s likely true that Indian will never be as big as Harley, I’d like to predict that Harley will never be as big as Harley as the baby-boomers continue to retire and the Indians continue flying out of the dealerships, giving those remaining baby-boomers an alternative, classically-styled, high performance, American-made motorcycle. I think they’ll meet in the middle a few years down the road. Polaris has a lot of money and as new Indian models are introduced over the next couple of years Harley’s level of stress is going to go even more ballistic than it already is. The handwriting is on the wall. Momentum is a powerful force in this life.

    Kent go look at some of the FuelMoto M8 engine dyno runs with Wood cams some tuning and a pipe

    and there is a lot more HP in those motors
