Today, at the Wheels & Waves festival in France, the iconic American motorcycle company confirmed that an FTR 1200, inspiredby Indian’s storied history in flat track racing, will be going into production.

Dapper Gentlefolk…….

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) is a bit of an Annual Highlight. There is something about the sight and sound of so many Classic machines, accompanied by their Dapper Riders that really resonates with me. Its a spectacle that cannot fail to raise a smile. That taking part in the ride, also contributes to a simply massive worldwide fundraising effort just adds to the joy. This year, for the second time, I hosted the Busselton WA DGR and I was keen to build on the success of the inaugural event…

A quick glance in my garage will tell you everything you need to know about my passion for Indian Motorcycles. Since their spectacular relaunch in 2013 the Model Range has steadily grown, and so has their following.  Like many Indian enthusiasts I am still keen to see the company expand the range beyond the Thunderstroke 111 and Scout platforms, but I am sure it will happen….

I Know Jack………

Although I have never owned one, I’ve been lucky enough to ride a few different Victory models over the last couple of years, but they have all been the Touring oriented models, usually loaned to me by the various Indian and Victory dealers I have visited across Australia. So today when a good friend parked his very new Victory Jackpot on our drive and passed me the keys, I finally got to ride one of the more radical bikes that  found its way out of the Victory factory. There is no…
