Polaris purchased the plant after McQuay left and began building watercraft and other products. They also are building their electric cars at the old Stylecraft plant in Milford. We moved to Spirit Lake in 1975. I do wear full gear when riding, and there are a lot of good riding roads around here. Winter has been cold windy. Not much snow so far.
About Spirit Lake, again. It is curious to me that they would have put the Victory/Indian plant up there. My husband worked in that factory when it was an airconditioning factory in the mid-1970s the one year we lived back there. You have some good local riding in the summer. I've got to know, do you wear a helmet? My husband says he never wore one growing up in that area; all I could think of was "bugs between my teeth"! I hope winter doesn't drag on.
