It's hard to look like a bada$$ when you're worried about wind and bugs.

Depends on what kind of chaps you wear...

Sorry
 
I'm sorry but I just can't pledge allegiance to the flag on this one. I feel bad about it but customizing this type of bike just doesn't do it for me. The geometry is wrong ,it costs too much.It's not a Multistrada.I feel ashamed.

I like a blacked out bike as much as the next, but IMHO this much black goes too far. It's the delicate balance between black that makes the chrome (or satin-ed metal) bits pop. H-D got it right in their new line of bikes. For me... meh.

All right, I can accept that. It could use a few more bits of flash. We plan to change things up a bit in our next installment. It will be more interesting than this bolt-on theme, I promise.

When deciding which components to order for it, I was quite impressed by the amount of stuff available in the Vic accessories catalog. Being able to get custom parts from Victory means you can include the cost of those pieces in a new bike's financing, so you can ride away on a bike that is customized to your personal tastes.

As a Bill Collector, I"m all for people going into more debt.

I have seen the Victory bikes up close. Their fit and finish is every bit as good as the venerable H-D. I'm not sure Victory has nearly as many "bits" to bolt on as H-D, but one can rest assured the quality of said "bits" is right up there, too!

When I have to move on to a cruiser, Victory or Triumph will be my first choice.
