Close, but no cigar.  However, you may have stumbled upon something quite by accident.  I do love all things Deco.  Always have.  Possibly I lived in those times from a previous life.

Hey ... shouldn't PC people be mad and try to forcing Indian to change its name?

If they did get mad and 'won'   ::) I think the name should be changed to Injun ... with corporate claiming it's just a funny way to spell engine.

Also, I am somewhat disappointed that this thread is so mellow.

If only you had purchased the ugly two tone mint green and cream one, then I would have been pushed too far and said something requiring sword action or banishment.  However since you purchased a more attractive blue monotone one, I wasn't pushed to the point of uncontrollable rudeness.  Maybe if you get some "Get Back whips" I could be inspired to do better? (pink ones would do it I should think.)

Better...  He dealer did talk about a bell and how it is supposed to protect the rider/passenger/bike but the protectee can't buy it for themselves.  Said he sells a lot of them.  Didn't mention whips.  Swords cut whips if one is fast enough.  I don't want anything dragging off the bike.

Congrats! Last year the Fredericksburg dealer had the demo truck there and I rode all the different models since I'm probably not far from getting some kind of old man touring bike next. I'm still going to keep the C-14 for 1 up riding though. I came in thinking the Roadmaster would be the one, but after riding them, I settled on the Chieftain. I think that's going to be the one when it's time.

Got a haircut hair cut today.  Asked me if I wanted the senior discount.  Absolutely, I said.  Saved 2 bucks.

So if they charged a buck to cut that lonesome hair, with the senior discount you are a hair lighter but a dollar richer?
That Roadmaster is a sharp looking bike. :)

Actually 2$ richer.  They 'cut' 2 off the price.  But I just gave it back to the barber in the form of a tip.  We have a Korean barber shop in Fredericksburg and it's the best barber shop I've ever been to.

Just to be absolutely clear.....I'm not going pirate.   Wearing the same stuff I always do.

Uh huh. But instead of a parrot on your shoulder you'll have a robin right?

Correct.  I even have the peg leg limp.

Maintenance wise the bike has no valve adjustments and the spark plugs are so easy a cave man could do it.

Morning Jim. You're up early. Have you been following Indian's reentry into flat track racing?
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.
