    Nice to see others about and riding in WA!! Love my last few days here and I think I moved to rider heaven! It's great.

    The dark horse (look alike) is one sexy bike!

    Just for fun, I want to see the roll-on comparison.

    More videos to come, I will say we did have a few friendly races and there's no competition. The torque on the Rocket is devastating to say the least. But I will say that Dark Horse is one comfy ride...

    I haven't look at any other bikes since I bought my rocket, but if I ever have to buy another machine, other than a rocket, I will more than likely buy an Indian. It will be hard to give up the torque and gutsy feel.

    Let's face it, we have been spoiled in that respect.

    Yep I do like the power with the Rocket, But the Indian isn't slow either...Just not as fast :) I will say though that The owner of Indian has already had a few recalls on the bike since it is the 1st year model (2016) I'd wait a few years and let them get all the kinks out. It's a bike in it's own class hard to really compare the two honestly.

    I've heard they perform well, but it will be a long time coming before, if ever, I get rid of my R3T. Probably the last bike I'll ever own, but I've learned to never say never. The next bike will need training wheels as I'm already 70.
