Good looking bikes. Do the Victory dealers treat their customers any better than Harley does?

Can't say... due to slow sales, Victory dealers are few and far between.

Nah, it's $13000 for the all black 8 Ball. The pumpkin-colored styling exercise is $16.5 k.

Good one, LOL

I like the 8 ball, looks like the kind of cruiser I'd buy if I was in that market, the Suzuki dealer down the road from me carries Victory, so I check them out from time to time. Didn't see the red leather parachute pants though.... musta' been sold out.

An 80 degree riding day in October?.... this morning the windshield on my van and car was frosted, good thing I rode the bike or I'd have have to dug out my ice scraper

I like the newer Victorys also. I wish them success because the more American competition for Harley, the better. Harley is still selling us the engine upgrades right now instead of bolting 'em on from the beginning.



I just read that the Victory line makes up only about 5% of Polaris' total sales so they've got a long way to go. I've seen very few of them on the road here.

Those are very nice looking bikes. I think both are a little pricey though. I have decided to get a cruiser to park alongside my ZX 11 and was seriously considering a Mean Streak or a Road Warrior. Of course, both of those, especially a used one, can be had for half the price of the Hammer.



But, I am still going to check them out when I get home. By the way, those Jawas are pretty popular here on the streets of Baghdad!
