While I've never owned a Vintage Indian I had the privalage to ride a friends 52 Cheif. With that big sprung saddle and todays better rodes a 1000 mile trip wouldn't be a problem. I had a a 48 WL 45 cubic inch Harley with a sprung seat and hardtail frame and it wasn't as smooth as the Indian and the only concern I had on long trips was keeping oil in it. But back then every brand of motorcycle leaked oil. I had a servicar transmission on my WL so I had reverse. That was years before the Goldwing even thought of it. It was tricky with the foot clutch.
