    Indian's back on the flat track ...

    And they want you to know it!

    Three races in, 3 victories for the FTR750 teams.

    7 out of 9 possible podium spots in 3 races.

    Yeah, they're serious.

    Where was that event at? I've been reading off and on about Indian sponsoring some riders for flat track events.

    I've been to flat track in So Cal a couple of times. What a blast to watch! The sad thing is that there is a need for safety improvements at flat track events. There were two riders killed at events in northern California last year, and I think another young rider this past weekend or two (not sure where).

    Well, so far - 6 races in, or 1/3 of the way through the season - the Indian Scout teams have won every race, swept the podium three times and taken 1st and 2nd in the other three races. 15 of 18 possible podium spots so far have gone to Indian Scout FTR750s.

    For their first season back on the flat track, Indian is doing it right. So are Mees, Baker, and Smith.

    Just one more Harley Davidson domain Indian is checking into. And very cool they are doing it. Now when is an American motorcycle company going to build a really competitive sports bike? A study of KTM might be in order ...

    I've heard some interesting rumors coming out of Spirit Lake about what new directions Indian is turning to now that they've established themselves firmly in Americana once again. The next 5 years or so should be very interesting as far as the American manufacturers go.

    Okay, 7 races, 7 wins for the Wrecking Crew. They changed it up this time around though: instead of taking 1st and 2nd or sweeping the podium the Wrecking Crew went 1st and 3rd.

    Yeah, I know I'm the only one here interested in this stuff. I'll just shut up about it from now on.

    Nah, probably not.

    Keep posting. Just because I have nothing to contribute doesn't mean I don't have something to learn.
