What about Indian motorcycles? Is it OK to own one?

Really? Down votes for posting the etymology? Please forgive me for offending you with readily available historical information.

Yeti Cycles Will No Longer Use the Term 'Tribe' in Marketing
Here is the Etymology of 'Tribe' in case you are curious about where it comes from: tribe (n.) mid-13c., "one of the twelve divisions of the ancient Hebrews," from Old French tribu or directly from Latin tribus "one of the three political/ethnic divisions of the original Roman state" (Tites, Ramnes, and Luceres, corresponding, perhaps, to the Latins, Sabines, and Etruscans), later, one of the 30 political divisions instituted by Servius Tullius (increased to 35 in 241 B.C.E.), of unknown origin. Perhaps from tri- "three" + *bheue-, root of the verb be. Others connect the word with the PIE root *treb- "a dwelling" (see tavern). In the Biblical sense, which was the original one in English, the Latin word translates Greek phyle "race or tribe of men, body of men united by ties of blood and descent, a clan" (see phylo-). Extension to modern ethnic groups or races of people is from 1590s, specifically "a division of a barbarous race of people, usually distinguishable in some way from their congeners, united into a community under a recognized head or chief" [Century Dictionary], but colloquially of any aggregate of individuals of a kind.

Video: Old-School Meets New-School in 'Since 1977'
My first bike was a Diamond Back BMX in 1986. It had a polished chromoly finish and Araya rims. My Brother had a Hutch. Such a sick bike. I kept it in my bedroom next to my RAD (movie) poster.

@endlessblockades: I screwed that up too. Saw Vinay's 'Heroine' and wrote it the same way. My bad.

@vinay: It's probably a loose reference to the Guns & Roses song, "Mr Browstone" which is a song about being hooked Heroine. Not sure if they thought this one through enough...

First Ride: Privateer 161 - An Affordable-ish Race Ready Machine
I'm VERY curious how the 80 degree seat angle feels on long climbs. Is it really better directly over the pedals? It also looks like it makes the cockpit (VTT) a bit on the short side while seated. Just saying....

Totally agree. The composition, angle and b&w just looks sick.
