Iconic Indian Motorcycles come to Vancouver Island
Since Tom Wilson bought Island Motorcycle Company two years ago, the store has
undergone some big changes, and Vancouver Island riders are enjoying the benefits.
“He’s brought in lots of energy and ideas.” says general manager Bill Wellbourn. “He
took us from single-line dealer to five brands, and added second location.”

style and formidable power!
