I like it. Old meets new. If I didn't live on a $3K bike budget I would consider it.

I like Victory bikes. This "High Ball" bike doesn't make sense to me, though, because the whole Victory line is clean-cut. And the muffler shape is way too plain. It looks like a high-brow bike trying to slum it up. Poser bike :) But if you like it, there are worse ways to spend your money.

Every one comes with a year's supply of whiskey!

If it's Bookers then I'm in.

More power, more torque, and costs less than a Harley? Still, a shining example of another mfg chasing the big dog. Woulda been way cooler if Victory had put this out before the Cross Bones.

Can't imagine too many buying these. Aren't all the original "old skool" bobber type riders in the nursing home by now?

Seems to me that getting replacement tires over the years will be a moderate PITA too.

No thanks. Gimme a Hammer S though :D

I'll look into it when I get a chance, but I think the 'Apes' may be illegal in Florida if they are fixed in their highest position.

Last I looked, there was a maximum of 15-1/2 inches from the seat height to the handgrips. Those pictures look like it's a lot more than that.

Otherwise, my feelings about the bike could be summarized by: Eh.

Victory seems to have a Ball fascination.

Comes with detachable tea bags for light-duty touring.
