Default Errrkkk ...

that is one handsome bike, but for 20k i could buy a roadliner and hit the road for a year.



bling won't do you much good if it leaves you broke.



question: is victory a union shop? if so, that would explain it.

Really?



Where?



And, (I almost hate to ask) exactly HOW did he lunch the tranny on it? Hawks have a pretty robust transmission; better than many bikes with twice the horsepower.

Chiming in a little late here, but...



So, if changing the bar fixed the handling, then that means that all the handling ugliness you guys *****ed about was because you couldn't help but pull on the outside handle in a turn because it was so far away! I ran into this issue on the Road King I had a while back, and found I really had to think about relaxing my outside arm on that bike to keep from messing up the turn.



Oh, and black is the new chrome.

Until they make something other than cruisers, they will never get it right.
