Indian reposted it, and I don't blame 'em. It's a killer shot and good publicity. Indian could have stopped right there, but instead they sent the guy a box of free swag and made one of his bike payments for him.

You can't beat that with a stick. I don't know about you guys, but I'm not shopping bikes on just price or performance specs. There are intangibles you buy when you get a bike, and I'll be danged if this isn't one of them.

Good on you, Indian. And you, too, @hirethestache.

Readers, you know the drill. If you see something awesome like this, send it to us ( so we can shine some limelight on it.
