photos_large_1Joe Askins, vice president of Off Road Express and Auto Express at 10320 Wattsburg Road, Greene Township, said he’s been in talks for more than a year about becoming an Indian dealer.

His dealership, which opens within the next few weeks, is one of the first in the region, opening before Indian dealerships that might come to Pittsburgh, Buffalo or Cleveland.

Askins, who will host “Demo Days” on Oct. 8 and 9, said the company will bring 16 new Indian motorcycles to town, which will be available for test drives for anyone with a motorcycle license.

Although he doesn’t have any motorcycles in stock, Askins said he’s already sold more than 20 and has a list of about 70 more people who are waiting to try one.

“It’s exciting,” Askins said. “It’s America’s oldest motorcycle brand. It was formed in 1901, and it was a group of Indian riders who started the Sturgis (motorcycle rally) in the 1930s. It’s got a lot of heritage behind it.”
