Take a look at this here super bagger from the fine folks at Indian Motorcycle. It’s the all-new 2018 Indian Roadmaster Elite. This rig has just about every creature comfort you can cram on two wheels. Don’t let all this big blue-and-black largeness freak you out. It is a rather spry cycle even with the cavernously good trunk out back and the adjustable lowers up front. I personally rode this very bike with my better half aboard to Sturgis and back this year. I can tell you it’s a very well-equipped touring bike, if not the nicest I have ever thrown a leg over.
Easily attained were 600-mile days, and even in bad weather the Roadmaster Elite kept rolling along. Some of my favorite things about this machine were the beastly 111ci motor, electrically adjustable windshield, dual-climate heated seat, and heated grips. Yes, those things aren’t the norm for me at all when riding, but in all my years of tripping to Sturgis I have never experienced such power combined with immense luxury.
