Default Re: What Size Victory? 600? Openbike? Twin?

The C-5 Corvette (5th generation 1997 - present) has VASTLY improved seating, visibility, overall build quality and most importantly chassis rigidity, compared to pre 97 Corvettes. Illustration: a 1998 C-5 Convertible actually has a less chassis flex than a 96 COUPE.

And there we have it...mid range tourque.





I know very well that a good 600 will spank my Triumph's 995cc's, but out on the street where I ride I hate having to keep the thing at 10,000 rpm all day. Granted, it's been a few years since I last rode a 600, but they just aren't on my shopping list. I need/want a strong mid range, decent comfort, and maybe a little euro 'snob' appeal just for my ego. That said, my wallet and my heart are planning to cast a vote for a Speed Triple later this year, although I am going to have a look at a Mille here soon as well.

Just for ****es and giggles you ought to take a Speed 4 for a test ride. Since you already have a big triple, you could get the Speed 4 for when you felt a little more aggressive and like dancing on the shifter. That bike is my new favorite in the 600cc class.

Friend,



I've ridden in Colorado, California, North Carolina, Virginia, West Germany, France, Israel, and South Africa, I don't consider everything east of Denver to be flat.



Gulp, no further flame-bait will be swallowed, Take care and ride that 600 safe, okay?

Default Geography 101

Technically speaking California is West of Denver. France and West Germany are not included in my East of Denver thing. Since I spent some time in Israel, the Golan Heights might count but not really. If you are talking about NC and Va there are some nice hills But nothing we would bother naming out here in the land of 14,000 ft peaks (52 in Colorado alone).
