Max,



I never argued with your posting or assertions, I simply pointed out to you that it was what people were joking about, not your comments on the condition of cruiser tech. -Sean

I dig how the swingarm pivot looks to be lower than the axle soon as you sit on the bike. Does it bow down like a trained elephant soon as u apply a little gas? That's cool.

After being outta town for the week, riding the Fat Lady, aka ST11 in the N GA, E TN and W NC Mts - eat your hearts out! - I feel I must weigh in on this Victory bidness.



I don't care for crusiers and think Harleys look just flat out tired -but I've said that so many times in this forum that I'm sounding as tired as cruisers look.... But the Hammer. Hmmm, not yet. Maybe when I'm 60+...maybe.



I agree with whoever suggested putting that motor into something other than a crusier.



I'm also showing wood over wanting to ride a Rocket III...but then I bought a Kaw KZ1300 new back in '79 - and liked it!



So there!



And JohnnyB...isn't the word you are looking for - "manout" - except spelled different and correctly? I forget.



Signing off from retrograde orbit about the Plant Zero....

And before I fall back into perfect parabola of an orbit..if they'd just put those Hammer footpegs under yer butt where they belong for proper control of vehicle dynamics; fixed the riding position, etc., then dang!



Of course it would be a muscle STANDARD then, not another tired cruiser.

As Homer J. would say "...stupid 250 rear tire..."



Have so many of us really lost so many brain cells (I suspect overexposure to reality TV) that something so ridiculously impractical, nay, dangerous could be viewed as a product benefit strictly based on the fact that it looks tough?



(To myself) Well, yes, stupid.



Victory keeps hollering that it's the largest rear tire on a production motorcycle. And some people will buy, or seriously consider buying, on that fact alone.



Ladies and gentleman, we have finally reached Bizzaro World.



But we really should have known, shouldn't we have? I mean, there are plenty of suckers who are paying $30K+ for "customs" that are little more than badly- engineered, badly-assembled, kit bikes with fancy paint.



Bored doesn't even begin to describe how I feel.

Well, people pay thousands more for a Toyota Land Cruiser with Lexus badges on it. Talk about paying for nothing!



No one ever went broke understimating the taste of the American public.

Yeah... that really took off after Biker Boyz eh?



Cruisers are never going out of style.



The fact that multiplication doesn't mean that basic addition is somehow out dated.
