Default The GPTB conspiracy...

Styling is personal taste evidently I have different tastes than the GPTB and the rest of the cruiser buying public. I think the Victory bikes have a lot more style.. Yamaha is second... i.e they do some original things but don't get credit for it...Everyone thinks HD is the original... and every great styling idea comes from them.. I think that is just propaganda spread by HD via the HOG chapters and GPTB.. witness Buz's remark.

"Better proportions"

"Better styling"



Subjective, but I agree.



"Better engine"



Yes.



"Better ride"

"Better brakes"



And here you were doing so well. Have you ridden them? Have you read a road test of the yet-to-be-released Harley?



"Better value"



The Victory lists at around $13,500. I doubt the Harley will list for more than ten (I'll guess under $9000). Harley's have much, much better resale than Victorys.

Points taken..Thanks for an intelligent dialog...Refreshing...No I haven't ridden them.. I am just referring to the reviews on Victory's vs Harleys. Yes a used HD does better.. That HD low seat height just blows me away..

Giving an opinion on something you have no knowledge of again? Doesn't it get old?

Giving an opinion on something you have no knowledge yes but I don't do that.. I have knowledge of the Victory. I have seen one, touched one, read about one, etc.

No, that was Bill Murray. Billy Crystal is the one that hosts that Telethon. Before that he was the comedy partner with Dean Martin. And as you know, Martin later went on to manage the Yankees.
