You can say that again


Sometimes it’s not for a week either, many rides over a week-end sort the men from the boys. Riding a leaf spring Springfield model over 10 or 20 days can be quite wearing on man and machine, roads have improved substantially since the time these machines were made but the speed has gone up as those who ride early Indians on standard gearing will attest. Most early Indians are up a couple of teeth on the countershaft sprocket which makes the bike feel more pleasant a highway speed and cuts vibes and wear but it doesn’t help when you hit a large pothole at 100 kph and your machine can physically leave the ground!
