Surprised they held on this long, and I would imagine Indian becoming a more established bike has made the decision easy for Polaris. Victory were just too funky and quirky for the traditionalists

Sign of the times. Few people have the money for sports bikes these days yet alone unexciting bikes that cost too much.

Sums up my feelings exactly. I rode several times with a buddy who had a victory. Every ride it was something. Clutch handle linkage was one of the issues, don't remember the others, just that his bike was constantly in the shop under warranty.
I was vacationing this summer, and met a guy at the gas station who was on a 2016 Indian Roadmaster. I talked to him for for about 45 minutes, he did most of the talking, everything about the bike. He was quite familiar and had done a couple upgrades, suspension being one of them.
I fell in love with that bike. Overall it seems like a pretty worthy bike, along with a big price tag. This guy had his all equipped with luggage, and everything else, said he had about $36K in it.
That's not counting the beautiful blonde trophy wife he had riding with him. :wink2:

I wondered when you were going to get to the point of why you were talking to a guy on an Indian.:grin2:

There's only so many buyers for cruisers.
With Harley, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, Suzuki, Indian, etc., sounds like market saturation is occurring.
