Steve, Justin, and Jared all raced in the 2011 Indian vs Harley Great Race which was a 3 day riding and fun competition that incorporated check points, timed mileage sections and other chanllenges through Yosemite National Park in California. At each check point the riders earned points for his brand motorcycle.
Entries were limited to Indian & Harley motorcycles 1965 and earlier. Steve rode a 1938 Indian Chief, Justin rode a 1947 Indian Chief, and Jared rode a 1948 Indian Chief.
Here are some pictures from that ride. Enjoy!
