Well DAMNIT all.
Looks like this thread could come back to life.
Looks like you have been abandoned by KM/Polaris the same way us Gilroy riders were abandoned by Gilroy/KM.
Got to say mjdart--I do admire your attitude concerning these modern day Indian Motorcycles.
Almost 10 years on with mine, and I still just keep on working at keeping it going.
Having good luck doing it too.
I just CANNOT figure out why the hell I keep at it.
These bikes kind of hook you somehow despite their problems.
I just test rode a BMW 1600 GLT last week.
That is one hell of a machine. I could afford it and would ride it--but I went home and climbed on my Cheef and decided there would be no sense in BUYING it.
Kind of strange ain't it?
Hopefully Polaris will provide the technical knowledge and engineering expertise that Indian Motorcycles of Kings Mountain was lacking. I had hoped the North Carolina Indian Factory would succeed as it made a great story, but nagging problems and attention to detail along with a disastrous economy doomed them. My two year warranty will be expiring leaving me & Chief 31 with 10,000 odometer miles to fend for ourselves but that has pretty much been the case from the start as I still have no dealers within 5 hours and parts availability is severly limited. Hopefully Polaris will put together a dealer network for service and parts in the not too distant future.
