Daytona Bike Week kicked off late last week. Indian Motorcycle fans will be glad to know an array of activities are still lined up for the remainder of the event. This includes a custom bagger showcase, demo rides for all new 2017 models, and a 2017 Chieftain sweepstakes. Don’t miss Carey Hart’s custom Chieftain bagger on Main Street or the all-new Roadmaster Classic at the Speedway, either!
In addition, Indian’s new “Wrecking Crew” will make its debut at the American Flat Track season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, March 16. The team includes 2016 Champion Bryan Smith, along with two of the sports most decorated riders, Brad Baker and Jared Mees. The team will be armed with Indian’s Scout FTR750.
