Sounds like you guys all ride Harleys or Buells the way you rant on Victorys. My Vs are liquid cooled but I don't foam at the mouth when a bike I don't personally like gets brought up.
Don't Mods need to be slightly less biased than the natives around here?

I don't think it's a dig at Victory per se, but just the opinions of folks who've been around long enough, to see a brand that might be on the ropes, no matter how good it really might be. And you have to admit that touring rig didn't do much for the Victory image.

I wish 'em well, but build another goofy looking bike Victory, and that may be it.

In the interest of fairness, we think you're ugly too.

Nobody cares what you think.

Thanks for the link to Scutigera coleoptrata. I always wondered what those were. I see one every once in a great while; now I know they are "good" bugs that live up to 7 years, don't bite people, and will eat the bad bugs they find, such as bedbugs, termites, ****roaches, and silverfish, and wasps. What's not to like?

I see a few Victory bikes here in the NW Chicago Suburbs, but I haven't seen a Vision yet. Lots of Harleys, but that's no surprise, since I live pretty close to a dealer. On the expressway I see quite a few BMW's, some sportbikes, and less Harleys.

"..but I haven't seen a Vision yet..."

I guess you really need to thank God for small favors.

Ha! The only thing that gets moderated around here are spam, racists stuff, threats and anything else that's illegal. As far as opinions go all are welcome.

Personally I liked the older Victorys. I don't like Arlen Ness styling so when he started designing the appearances of them they lost me. Good bikes though. Hope they survive but with sales currently down 50% that's going to be tough.
