Why on Earth would someone want to nod to the Ruin? There's still a new Ruin sitting at Salt Lake Honda that no one wants fer crissakes. Not that Polaris didn't, just why?

Put drag bars on the Street Bob and it looks real sweet.

I rode a Street Bob at the Kansas City factory tour; was impressed with the 6 speed tranny and lighter clutch pull, but otherwise it was just another bland cruiser. I'd rather have the Victory.

#50? Is that reference to how long it is in feet? Like I can talk with my mile long K12RS...

I'm with you on this one. The "new" Jackpot looks more like a chamber pot to me.

I actually like the tribal stuff, seems a bit different to me than flame-everything.



I agree. however, about the rear tire.

You liked it, do you like it now? I don't think most folks today would like it. Point is Victory is doing a great job. It's hard to compete with HD as too many HD brainwashed folks won't even test ride a Victory. If they were open minded enough to try one they would see which is the better product. Now that would be hard to deny.
