Indian Motorcycle featured on ABC News

On Monday, November 9, 2009, ABC News will film a feature on Indian Motorcycle Company, highlighting the revival of this historic brand amid America’s struggling automotive and motorcycle manufacturing industry.

Good Morning America’s Bill Weir will ride a 2010 Indian Chief as he joins Indian Motorcycle on a trip through the North Carolina mountains to Deal’s Gap, the famed "Tail of the Dragon" hailed by many as the best motorcycling road in the USA. Motorcycle historian Dale Walksler will ride a vintage 1944 Indian Chief and provide expert commentary on American motorcycling history.

Good Morning America is ABC’s morning news and talk show produced live from Time Square in New York City. On the air since 1975, the Good Morning America is among the top viewed shows in morning television, and has won several Emmy awards.

Good Morning America’s weekend anchor, Bill Weir is an Emmy-winning reporter who travels the world to uncover breaking news and global trends. He was among the first reporters on the scene during Hurricane Katrina, and was the lead reporter in ABC’s coverage of the war in Iraq. Weir’s domestic reporting tends to focus on innovative ways to solve many of America’s biggest problems.

As America’s first motorcycle company, Indian Motorcycle began producing motorcycles in 1901, and paved the way early on for many other American motorcycle manufacturers to flourish during the earliest part of the 20th century. Once our country’s largest motorcycle producer, the Indian Motorcycle Company became defunct shortly after World War II. The iconic brand resumed production in 2008 and has since released seven models including the 2010 Chief Dark Horse and 2010 Limited Edition Chief Bomber.
