No one said the indian had plastic fenders. Nor did anyone slur the Indian name yet. No need to slur Kawasaki's name. I simply noting that, in general, the motorcycle press likes to berate metric cruisers for using plastic. I know little about the Indians other than they had a loooong wheelbase and were powered by Harley clone engines, S&S was it?
I thought they were good looking bikes. I also like the Drifter from Kawasaki. As cheap as I am, I would go for the Kaw before the "real deal" just on price alone.
I personally don;t see the value of "american" motorcycles, other than the prestige of being able to say you own one. by that, I mean the inflated pricing. Not knocking the quality or anything else. Would like one, if they were priced reasonably (to me) and they made something that flipped my trigger. Sorry, I'm getting off track here.
