Last night, Bikernet (along the rest of the world) looked on as Indian Motorcycle ushered a new era in American motorcycle history in Downtown Sturgis, on the grounds of the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall Of Fame. The much-anticipated return of the Chief played out in front of a dense and enthusiastic crowd that had gathered for the momentous event. Entertainment was provided by a rock band, opening for of soulful rendition of the national anthem played by a talented trumpet player.
Atop the museum building, on each side of the facade, curtains opened on a pair of red Indian motorcycles that appeared out of a cloud of smoke and the crowd went wild as a group of riders, all tied one way of another to the Indian name and lore, rode in and parked a collection of 2014 Indian motorcycle for the world to finally admire.
The Chief has returned indeed and if you're in Sturgis for the rally, here's a chance to take a ride one. You can ride one of three 2014 Indian Motorcycles at the event: the Indian Chief Classic ($18,999), the Indian Chief Vintage ($20,999) and the Indian Chieftan ($22,999).
You will find the Indian Motorcyce truck off the I-90 Exit at Lazelle; you can't miss it.
