    After much sober deliberation, I'm going to punch the card for bigmikes Indian. I've seen this entrant in person and Mikes attention to detail is first class. The meticulous fit and finish make this Indian Scout look like it just rolled off the assembly line.

    I cast my vote for by far not the prettiest but the hardest working truck on this site and a truck I think about every time I cut my grass as I'm bouncing over the ruts it made in my yard. Wes gets the vote

    Default Thanks for your vote

    I appreciate any consideration for my 1941 Indian 741 to be MV of the year 2018. She came to me civilianized but not too badly butchered (pic #1). Did I mention she has matching serial numbers? Frame up restoration all done myself (pic #2). She's not the biggest contender but what this gal lacks in size or horsepower, she makes up in preservation of history (pic #3). It would be a true honor to see her win this prestigious award.

    Well this was a tough one, but in the end I had to go with the track, I have a perverse love for tracked vehicles! I voted for most of these on their monthly go around and it was a tough choice

    Hello!

    Actually, one should abstain from the vote because one can not decide at all.
    But it should also have a nice motorcycle the chance of winning the main prize.
    That's why my voice gets the Harley.



    In German:

    Eigentlich müßte man sich der Stimme enthalten, weil man sich garnicht entscheiden kann.
    Es soll aber auch mal ein schönes Motorrad die Chance auf den Hauptgewinn haben.
    Deshalb bekommt meine Stimme die Harley.



    Greetings from Germany,

    I apologize a lot, of course I meant Indian and not Harley.
    I've also read it, but as a German you have always automatically with an American V2 engine Harley in the head.
    In addition, at the moment I have flu and almost 41 degrees fever, so my thinking is a bit limited.
    Thanks Migginsbros for the hint.
    I am a stupid Kraut.




    In German:
    Ich bitte vielmals um Entschuldigung, ich meinte natürlich Indian und nicht Harley.
    Ich habe es ja auch gelesen, aber als Deutscher hat man bei einem amerikanischen V2 Motor immer gleich automatisch Harley im Kopf.
    Außerdem habe ich im moment Grippe und fast 41 Grad Fieber, deshalb ist mein Denken ein wenig eingeschränkt.
    Danke Migginsbros für den Hinweis.
