I rode one at Wike Beek myself. If Fonzie's a convert, I guess I'm a Pagan. My arms were numb 10 minutes in, and I couldn't wait to get off the thing at the end of our Tour de Daytona.

Maybe 5' chrome sissy bars and King 'n Queen seats will be the next great "retro-vention." I can hardly wait.

Its.......A FACT!

Sat on one at the local dealership and my first thought was what the hell were they thinking. I own a Vic and love the bike but they were way off the mark with this one.

I'm not cool enough to appreciate Victory styling. Not a single bike in their lineup that appeals to me.

Well they ain't touring bikes there Morbo... king and queen seats are coming back btw.. I've already had a meeting with another American builder's styling department. Best you rustle up a queen and some advil!

Like Vics, like the 8-ball but High-ball not so much ... Still I'm sorry I missed Daytona this year.
