    Great Review Adam, If you don't mind me pitching in my review as well. I have 150,000 Miles between HD- '05 Super glide, '06 Street Bob,'10 Heritage, '11 Street Glide, and my last H-D '13 Road Glide. I now own a 2016 Indian Roadmaster. Now keep in mind my Road glide was a 103 and the Roadmaster is of course a 111. I agree 100% a Fixed Fairing motorcycle is much easier for long trips because the wind just rolls off the Fairing. Where Attached to the fork Fairings on the Indian Chieftians and Roadmasters, and H_D Street Glide and Ultras can be a bit more work during windy times. That being said all fairing bikes are great to ride on long trips. I rode from Southern Az to Northern Wisconsin on a Street Bob, and the Iron but part of that was awful, but lets face it, Motorcycles are just fun to ride! anyway I digress. The power, torque, suspension, stereo, balance and overall comfort in the Roadmaster was way better than my Street Glide or Road Glide. Now we are comparing power and torque of a set of 103's vs 111. A riding brother of mine went out with me to see the difference on the pavement head to head, He has a '13 Street Glide VS my Roadmaster. RM has more power and torque and in 5th or 6th gear really pulls away from the SG after about 50-60MPH. I don't have to downshift the RM to pass. The SG did. The RM is a bigger heavier bike and smaller Gas Tank, so the SG get a bit better MPG's and slightly bigger gas tank turns into more stops for the Indian than the H-D. Now I used to be able to drag the shit out of my floor boards on every H-D I owned, on both sides. Meaning I could lean much harder and faster in the curves on all my touring H-D's. However the seats on all of them were a little high for my 30' inseam. The RM has a lower seat and the exhaust is hung much lower. So when I lean hard, I destroy my pipes before I get to the floorboards. I have 12,000 MI on my Indian Roadmaster, and other than leaning harder and faster in twisty roads, the indian is far superior. Now H-D has the 117 so they are more powerful. However there is a 116 upgrade option for all Indian 111's, so then we are back to even when it comes to Horse power and torque. any spelling or grammar errors, I apologize, I've been piecing this together while at work. Bottom line for me after 160,000+ miles of riding......get what you want, and what you can afford. Being on two wheels regardless of make is what it's all about. I personally could never own a Goldwing, because of my biases. However, I will admit, the 2019 Goldwings are fast more powerful and more nimble than any American made bike. (That was so painful to say!) So, as of right now I prefer Indian, to HD. I still would love to have a Street Bob for an around town bike! However in the long run, all this competition is best for us the riders! Be safe everyone, keep the rubber side down, and get your bike out of the garage!!!

    I am really curious as this a past video what your complaints or complements are on the chief after more miles? I test rode a 116 chieftain couple weeks ago at Indian dealership in garland tx. I was really impressed with it as far as performance and ride, but it felt like the fit and finish of the fairing and controls where flimsy.

      There is quite a bit aftermarket stuff for the Indian bikes now. Not nearly as much as H-D's obviously. but enough to truly make an any Indian unique. All I ever rode before was H-D's. Never imagined owing an Indian. If you ride an Indian, you can instantly feel the difference in bikes.

    I think if youre going to compare engine specs using HDs M8 114, you could have at least put them up against the Indian 116, BUT I still agreed with all of your points. For the perspective buyers, both are great bikes and I dont think you will be disappointed with either choice. I went with the 2018 Indian Chieftain Limited and have no regrets. For thoes who havent tried the Indian, believe it or not, that power windshield is pretty damn convenient. Hot weather? Put it down. Rain? Put it up. All while on the move. My one and only gripe is that the 111 gets F'ing HOT!!! Even on the move, its a major nut warmer. Its great in the winter though, didnt feel the need for seat warmers in 30 degree temps. But Im not looking forward to how that will feel as summer is creeping in. It already sucks with it in the 80s in the spring. This is my second bike and first big boys bike, coming from my first bike a 2015 HD Sportster. Im very impressed with how agile and fast it is. But anyways, the only real way to decide is to get out there and try them both for yourself. Either way, you wont be disappointed.

    Adam thank you for your reviews. I have always said HD all the way, but Indian is also looking good. I am of the opinion that you buy what you want. I have a used 1300 vtx, it gets me in the wind and that is what it is all about. The guys at work all ride a variety of bikes with HD being predominate but my bike parks in the same space as theirs so... Keep up the good work brother, stay safe and keep the rubber side down.

    When it comes to cruisers I pick harley , the bad thing about harley is they stick the price to everyone and then have it set up to where if the BIKER wants up grades , harley allows it within the warranty. If there was no such thing as fashion riders would the prices be where they are . I think harley does for the fashion guys but Jack's the prices .

    I can not even watch this review past the first comparison. You want to know why because you took an upgraded Harley and a stock Chieftain. You provided HP numbers for an upgraded Harley as beating the Stock Indians HP. You would have need to compare the 114 HD to the 116 Indian. My next problem if I buy a touring bike I want to know MPG's, Tank Size, Storage Space, Heat on the legs and crotch, Long distance set comfort, and etc.

      Bob Salt well i like the Harley Davidson 48 but when I saw the Indian scout Bobber 1200cc 100HP . same engine size but with way more horsepower and so much better looking I fall in love with the Indian scout Bobber. I’m not crazy about Harley’s I only like the Harley Davidson 48 not anymore compared to the Indian scout Bobber. Yeah they are no cheap but not as much as they Harley. Harley are complaining about Harley’s sales but they freakin crazy on prices. Just because is a Harley. Not my thing

    • Bob Salt
      Bob Salt 2 months ago +2

      Indians are over priced too. The Indians are only $1500 cheaper on average and you could haggle that down with a dealer. If price is your sticking point buy a used low mileage Yamaha Venture or a Goldwing. you'll pay half of what a new Harley or Indian will cost. Polaris had a good thing going with Victory, reasonably priced bikes for working men but they decided to scrap it and go the Harley route and target the retired dentist market.

  • David Phillips

    Adam, good review man.
    How do you feel about support? Having traveled all over the country as I have you know how Harley support is. Pull into the nearest shop unannounced for tires, oil change, whatever you need. Most shops have several racks going to service travelers. This is due to the incredibly large number of bikes on the road that they are able to do this.
    Do you think Indian has that kind of support now, or how long will it take them to get there?
    I have a hard time planning things ahead on a road trip due to the dynamic nature of it and really don't have time to be waiting around a day or two for service.
    This is the number one reason I have been touring on a Harley for the last 12 years. Never had to wait, never called ahead.
    Broke a header pipe on the Road King one time and the shop I stopped at West of Annapolis did not have one but 40 miles away in Annapolis they had it. They waited for me after closing and put it on. No charge.
    Speaking of bacon, I'm sure my 17 FLHTK has more suspension travel than that you quoted. It also has improved preload settings. If set correctly for the weight it is really smooth. I never would have known there was a problem. I'm sure your Road Glide is the same. Although not really the same bike as the Dark Horse. Street Glide is more of a bar hopper with a fairing. Road King has a better ride.
    Simple fix though, bolt on some of the other Electraglide shocks.
    What's the higher ground clearence advantage? If the lean angle does not increase there's maybe no reason for it unless maybe loading it on a ramp or something.

    Awesome comparison for those of us who go back m forth. I respect and love both the HD and Indian for there own old school traditions in America. Bottom line is I don't love or hate anyone for riding one or the other. We r all brothers n sisters on two wheels, with knees in the breeze. What I do say is "Ride American in America.". Another big way in supporting our great nation! As a veteran I can tell you that we absolutely have something as simple as owning and riding a bike as a PRIVILEDGE, to have the RIGHT, to roll on!

    Nice Job...I bought a 2018 Roadmaster last year and love it. I've already got a hot rod Harley and a nicely built Victory for blasting around and day trips, but the Indian was purely for my wife and I to do some touring. One of the best bikes I've had for that...we can still walk and function after a 1000 mi day. The only thing I've changed aside from pipes and air cleaner was adding cams. They pepped it up a bunch and my mileage is averaging hi 30's / low 40's .... It's a keeper.

    It comes down to mostly emotional rather than mechanical or other issues. Great attempt at unbiased review. I have ridden '48 Indians most of my life, have had little experience with Harleys. I have nostalgic feelings that would make me want to go with Indian if I wasn't 80 years old and was in the market for a touring bike. It has a lot to do with whatever your first motorcycle was.

      Love Harleys, I really do but the whole "cheap bikes are bad" argument is nonsense. Used Japanese cruisers can be had for cheap but not because of poor reliability or lack of features. The opposite is true. Dial in the bike that fits your budget and style and just ride. Not about what you ride but where you go.

    Everyone else= "For next year, we will address current model year issues and resolve them for our loyal customers".
    Harley= "Yeah, well. We have pretty colors".
    Others= "We will have invested a lot of money in R&D to help improve the overall quality of our line up to make our customers happy".
    Harley= "Um, we have loud pipes".

    Harley has linked brakes now.......a feature Honda has provided since the 80s.

      So. At end of the day it's still a Honda...not American. Pretty sure that's what the comparison is all about, in this video anyway. American built vs American built; hence the DEBATE. U ride Honda, that's great, but was t even part of the video is all I'm saying. Support ur Honda on a Honda forum. This is how hate crimes start. Nobody is looking for animosity on this channel.

      That's because Harley now uses Showia forks. Which is owned by Honda. Lol

      Yep. All the way back to the shop. How's that overheating engine (M8) working out for you?

    Buy a Vrod and convert it into a cruiser. Vrod has better power to weight, good comfort, good reliability. Add bags and optioned out fairing = superior bike vs these two combined. Sorry guys, these things are so heavy and no power.

    Yes sean, huge country. I remember riding adelaide to melbourne then sydney and into australia on a suzuki gs 750. The most I do now is london to scotland in 6 or 7 hours. Probably a tiger 800 is the most practical or a good adventure bike in truth but I do like the styling of older harleys and indians but think its crazy victory went bust as they seemed better designed. Still you americans know american bikes. At least even if expensive, most american bikes are built in usa. I dont see the 750 harley truely as american but we have only the commando newer one norton built in the uk.

      Thanks cuppateadee- i have a 2014 Rocket III roadster from triumph have over 28k miles on her bought new in mar. 2015 in terms of performance it makes these bikes look like mopeds but for distance after 500 miles the rocket will start fatiguing the rider quicker the rear suspension is gawd awful as the seating position is more for turns than straight line comfort. Prob. the indian is the smoothest ride; but performance is lacking

    Great, honest review. I appreciate this. I love my road Glide but I can appreciate the beauty of the Indian.

    Nice video. Especially leading off with the opinion piece. I personally found this review one of the best I've seen so far.

    My opinion.
    Harley is more than a Harley. It’s a culture, riding with pacts of Harley’s is just so cool. there’s more knowledgeable mechanics that can work on them when issues arise. There’s more aftermarket options to customize your Harley than Indian.
    I own a 2016 road king. Done a number of mods to it. And just keep doing more. And finally I can’t get past the look of an Indian, I think the Harley just looks so much better. Simply an opinion and I don’t knock anybody going the Indian route.
    As far as maintenance. I have yet to have any issues to leave me stranded (knock on wood). But I keep on my normal maintenance like a hawk and bike seems to be flawless so far.
    Great video I got a like from me :-)

    Thanks Adam and awesome review.Both motorcycles are amazing.It's always a tough decision when making that big investment.The big factor in purchasing my 2018 electra glide limited over the Indian is service.Harley has dealerships on every corner,that go out of there way to get that bike back on the highway touring the open road.Going to grab a set of your highway pegs.Very clean looking.
