Never could understand billet hand grips.

I've ridden plenty of Vics and like them but the styling is so 1998. It was the heyday of HOT Bike magazine and slow races and Ness customs.

Of course, I like H-D's looks which go back to the 30s so call me weird.

Really like the Vic Cross Country - appreciate the balance of features, power and chassis competence. Their style is fine, but I am not so swayed by that. Will probably get one someday, when I grow up...

I really like the looks of this bike. My girl friend says I am still back in the 90s so I guess it's not surprising.. The bike seems styled about right not over the top like the Vision. Love Sturgis the girls look so wholesome!

Darn professional decorum!

By the time I am done with my FZ1, it is likely that the next bike will be a Victory Cross Country bagger. Fighting it, but in the end it appears futile. Good thing the FZ1 is such a solid and reliable bike. The inevitable assimilation into touring barge land will eventually happen. No need to hurry the process though. Well maybe, if such a bike can attract wholesome women like the ones shown.

Oh, my wife would kill me for that last comment...

Wholesome women have many positive attributes. Loose ones, too...

Cory Ness? This bike looks like it was designed by Fred & Barney of the Flintstones. Professional decorum prevents me from commenting on Cory's Ness's signature justifying $25K... on anything.

Big sometimes can be hideous.. if you look up ostentatious in the dictionary... there a pix of this bike.

From South Dakota this bike should've been toured right into the Pacific Ocean.
