The wife and I were sitting in Denny's last night after a late meeting we attended when I saw a Road King pull off I-40 and pull into Denny's. It was drizzling rain, cold and had been raining off and on for hours. The guy, Matt, was from OKC and on his way to Las Vegas, just pulled in to warm up, dry out get some food. He sat next to us and we had a friendly conversation about his trip and bikes in general. I found out that he had a 2011 Road King with 99k miles on it that he traded last year on a new 2014 Chieftain. He's retired and rides a lot and said that the Chieftain had left him stranded 3 times, once in L.A., again in Las Vegas, and a third time in Chicago. The first time, an Indian dealer was close by and they came out, picked it up, made repairs and sent somebody to get him so he could pick up his bike. The next two times were pretty big inconveniences that also cost him in extra overnight stays and other expenses, so with 9k miles on it, he sold it, and bought a new 2015 Road King. He said he bought the Chieftain for the seat - the most comfortable ride he ever had and hated to sell it but got fed up with being stranded. Kind of hated to hear that because I like the new Indians.
