I'm soooooo afraid. Tipper doesn't like you from what I've heard and is threatening to sit on you the next time you show your face.

Harley is not the real deal, Indian was making motorcycles two full years before Harley. Indian is the REAL DEAL. Except they did not have the government to bail them out.



Now Harley clones the jap bikes with their liquid cooled Vrod. They also copy the rubber mounts, fuel injection, etc...



I laugh every time i hear this 'clone' talk nonsense. WHO CARES!?!?



Victory has some nice bikes. Just admit it.

Ummmmmmmm. Indian is long dead and departed, around 1954. Any relationship between the original Indian and the new start ups is purely coincidental.



Unless those imported rebadged 60's Royal Enfields were Indians too. Trying to keep up on the ins and outs of the ownership of the Indian name is a bit confusing.



Sort of like GM "re-introducing" the Malibu after 20 years. Once again, there's no relationship between the two lines except by name.

No. You can't get the optional 8-track tape player any more.

Default 8-Ball?

8-Ball? Well, I guess it's as good a name as, say, "Vegas Dark"

So now we can add delusions of grandeur to your list of psychoses.

Yes. You're an even sadder little man than I thought.

Maybe someone forgot to tell you, but Indian went out of business before you were born. Welcome to 1954. The Japanese government bails out Honda every year with government subsides, but you never cry about those. I bet you didn't even know about em. Live and learn maybe? Which bike did the V-Rod clone anyway? I mean if they cloned a "jap" bike, which one did they copy? I did say Victory has nice bikes. Maybe you read these quotes:



"I think Victory bikes are nice....."

"Enjoy your Victory. I'm sure they are nice."



See? Maybe if you actually read and comprehended what I actaully said, then you would actually make some sense. By the way, still looking to buy that Harley that you hate? I mean they do suck and all, but you are going to buy one for cruising and lookin' cool?

Default Re: 2005 Victory Motorcycle Lineup

Maybe I am missing something here but does no one else find it odd that they tell you how many amps the charging system can put out but do not say a word about HP or torque? My guess is they are all lame!
