Two Indians...


A dear friend drove up to spend a few hours with me yesterday. She always brings the best gifts. This time it was cookies for Dad which he loved and did not seem inclined to share, and a sign for me...



After we spent some time catching up on our families, we went to lunch. As we were walking out of the restaurant there before us were two big Indians.

I may have yelled, "OMG, those are Indians!" while furiously digging in my purse for my phone so I could take pics. 

I was amazed, Indians, right here in Red Bluff, all the way from Florida.  Never seen an Indian from Florida before, much less two of them.

  1. Such beautiful bikes. I behave exactly the same way when I see real Indians around here. It's a treat. And those are gorgeous.

      They are beauties aren't they! I was sorta amazed that I knew instantly what they were...
      My son has two HD road kings, so I have been indoctrinated to some extent.

  2. Never heard of them so I looked them up. Not only could I not afford the bikes, that guy must have at least 3 or 4K of leather hanging on his bike. Very pretty bikes.

      If it weren't for my son, I wouldn't have know what they were either.

  5. I did believe at first that you were being terribly politically incorrect. LOL Beautiful bikes. Wish I could find the picture from the 1920's of my grandfather on his Indian motorcycle. It looked a lot different.

      I am terribly politically incorrect, and I aim to keep it that way...
      I hope you find that pic, would love to see it.

  6. I agree with Old NFO: and I would go even further back. The Indians from the 1930's were art decco masterpieces. So beautiful, they hurt your eyeballs looking at them.

  7. There is an Indian motorcycle store in town, where I live. Fredd and NFO are right in that the vintage Indians were/are even nicer, and incorporated that hand-made look that are like motorcycle crack for us guys.
