World’s Fastest Indian at the New York Motorcycle Show! Sweet!

Possibly our favorite thing from a visit to the New York edition of the International Motorcycle Shows over the weekend. Did ya ever see the movie “The World’s Fastest Indian?”  Cool story about the exploits of New Zealander Burt Munro with his 1920 Indian Scout based streamliner motorcycle at the Bonneville Salt Flats in the 1960s and 70s.

And it wasn’t just a static display. They started it up! Enjoy!
