Yes, a special edition motorcycle predicated on a legendary whiskey
By Gary S. Vasilash
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
“In 2019, 4,733 people operating a motorcycle were killed in traffic crashes. Of those motorcycle riders, 1,383 (29%) were drunk (BAC of .08 g/dL or higher).
“Motorcycle operators involved in fatal crashes were found to have the highest percentage (25%) of alcohol-impaired drivers than any other vehicle types.
“The 40-to-44 age group had the highest percent, 40%, of drunk motorcycle operators killed in 2019.”
Which leaves me mystified about this:
“Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, and Jack Daniel’s®, America’s first registered distillery, along with Klock Werks® Kustom Cycles have partnered to celebrate American craftsmanship with the introduction of the Jack Daniel’s® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse. Marking the sixth year of the bold partnership and limited-edition series, the 2022 Jack Daniel’s® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse draws inspiration from Jack Daniel’s® renowned Tennessee Rye whiskey – each product embodying the same spirit of innovation to break the mold and exemplify world-class craftsmanship.”
Somehow it would seem that there is a large separation between motorcycles and alcohol of any type.
But evidently this is far from being a novelty (“Marking the six year of the bold partnership”), and something that is beneficial to the firms involved.
Whether you ride a 2022 Jack Daniel’s® Limited Edition Indian Challenger Dark Horse or a low-power Vespa:
Don’t drink and ride
