Very well written article. I am on my second Chieftain. I purchased a new 2014 in July of 14 and rode it until October 2016. I had 43,000 enjoyable miles on the 2014 but really liked the Ride Command system so I decided to trade for a 2017 Smoke White.

I am 5 feet 4 inches and did put a low heated seat (nice for our cold Iowa weather) on the bike to lower it just a bit. Even without the low seat I could still manage the bike with no issues.

The new Elite is a gorgeous bike! Thank you again for a great article.

I like the review but I didn't hear if they fix the heat that comes up from the pipes on the right side. I'm changing my headers to minimize some of the heat.

We discovered a product that reduces heat on these hot Indian engines.
Read our story here on the Love Jugs engine cooling system here.

Very informative article. I currently ride a Harley, but as a certified gearhead, I am keenly interested in all things mechanical.

This article is fantastic! I love all the photos you've included in here. This bike is so sexy. I want one! If only I had that kind of cash laying around. Oh well, a girl can dream. The dreaming is easier when I'm presented with a great review like this. Thank you! Love this site.
