Melbourne to Darwin And back 1927



Imagine doing say the Fink Rally on a new Chief or Scout next year, that would be impossible you would say up against KTM”s and the like, but these guys were the first to ride to Darwin on unsealed highways in 1927 similar riding conditions without medics or helicopter support! Amazing feat for man or machine,Indians were tough those days more so than even the technology driven versions that are now manufactured, no cruise control,fuel gauge, air suspension (or rear suspension for that matter),or even a fuel gauge on this old model then a great “thumping” big sidecar to just make it more difficult, it was a staggering achievement.
