Ron Hornaday Rides New 2009 Indian Chief Motorcycle

NASCAR Truck Star Ron Hornaday Rides the New 2009 Indian Chief Motorcycle.

Ron Hornaday, three time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion and twice voted most popular driver, recently took delivery of his 2009 Indian Chief Vintage at Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, the first Indian dealer in the nation. Chris Bernauer, general manager of Indian Motorcycle Company and Mark Moses, owner and general manager of Indian Motorcycle Charlotte, were on hand to congratulate the new owner on his choice.

"As a popular, respected and very successful race driver, Ron Hornaday could have any bike he wants. We’re thrilled that he chose the Indian Chief", said Chris Bernauer. Mark Moses had an additional perspective "We met Ron Hornaday a short time ago, but it became clear very quickly that he is a personable, passionate man who loves fast cars and motorcycles, just like us. We are honored to call him our customer and friend."

Ron Hornaday’s top-of-the-line black & burgundy Vintage was built to his specifications and features optional painted rims, black leather saddlebags and seat with fringed leather. Hornaday said "This is one beautiful bike and I’m looking forward to getting out and doing some riding. I’ve owned lots of motorcycles over the years, but this one is very special…a great combination of power and classic design. "

Hornaday mentioned that one of his favorite photos is that of his father seated on an Indian Chief, just before he sold it to go into the Army. (Ron Hornaday Sr. was himself a racing legend in the West Coast Stock Car Racing community who passed away just before Christmas last year.)

Moses added "We all wish Ron and the #33 team the very best this year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He’s won the series three times and finished second by a scant 8 points in 2008. We look forward to seeing him in the winner’s circle."

Indian Motorcycle was founded in 1901 in Springfield, Massachusetts, and is universally recognized as America’s First Motorcycle. Today’s Indian Motorcycle Company is located at Kings Mountain, North Carolina. 2009 Indian Chiefs are all new, and as a high-end premium cruiser, production numbers will be limited to maintain exclusivity.
