I think the BSA's are really cool.. do you think though that the Royal Enfield is already kind of filling that market? Not for true BSA fans, but for these brands to make it, they have to draw in others.

As much as the America and Rocket aren't for me, it seems like there are a lot of people who wouldn't have otherwise been into Triumphs are riding them. Not to say the core crowd isn't, because I see them on them as well.

I will say, if I was in the market for a traditional cruiser, and I had the budget, I'd love to have an Indian.

They'd only piss it up the wall like in the good old days of Lord and Lady Docker, BSA chaiman, and waste it on extravagances like the gold plated Daimlers, yachts, etc...

That would be cool to see the brand revived. We are downtown here and the guy in the businness next door rides his BSA everyday to work. Parks it on the street for all to see.
