Our forum foreign correspondent, Houso Joel reports. "Indian is the talk of the rally so far. The flat track 750 came off the stage during the unveil... injuring 4 people."

The crash happened around 9:45 pm yesterday in Buffalo Chip, South Dakota. Roland Sands rode the Scout FTR750 (built for AMA Flat Track Racing with 750cc engine) on to the stage for public unveiling and promptly rode off the stage. It is said that the bike only has a rear brake and Roland may have gone for the non-existing front brake.

I guess the launch made an impact!! (I am weak, I couldn't help myself). [smile]

See for your self.

...yup!  Woops, indeed.  For anyone who dropped their bike when we are out riding with 20 or 30 mates... that's nothing.  From now on, when someone drops an Indian, people will say... 'You Rolland Sandzed your bike!'    [biggrin]

Its a real harley town (the indian demo site is on harley davidson way). Indian seems to have a poor rep here too but that is based on previous failures of the company/brand.
Regardless it hasnt inspired any sympathy for indian.
The new moto guzzi looks ro be a real beast. Priced at $21k usd be a real competitor in the market
