As has now become Motofire tradition, we’re staying with our feet firmly on UK soil and our eyes glued to the Internet; looking out for feelers across social media and other channels to get a sense of what the lucky journalists make of the new machine.
Thursday 20th April
The first rides will be happening on Thursday, just as soon as everyone has had a decent night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast. That includes us, so we’ll sign off now and pick this all back up again in the morning, once people have had the chance to swing their legs over the machine.
Just in case you’re in the area of Spain that the riders are though, here’s a helpful guide to the route that they’ll be taking… Twisty!

Wilkins Harley from Vermont, USA have a tidy little walkaround the bike:
If we were going to trust anyone’s opinion of the new Street Rod, it would be from the British-based magazine, American V. We’re glad they’re out on the launch and are really interested to see what they have to say about the new machine.
A journalist from Overdrive magazine is also out on the Indian launch, and if his opinion is anything to go by, it looks like Harley might just be onto a winner,
