    Most of the “midway” display area appears to be in the same place as last year at the east end of DIS. However, the Indian demo rides are way over on the west end (Florida Hospital Gate). Maybe others are over there too. Harley always seems to get that prime spot by the midway.

    The new grandstand facilities are phenomenal too if you get a chance to go to the motorcycle races.

    Can’t sell without advertising……
    Good to see competition in the market.
    Way to go Indian.
