I believe that Arlen is "On Record" (at the Press Intro some months ago) as having "absolutely NOTHING to do with the styling of this Motorcycle"..........

Experience with poseurs, not experience being a poseur. Did I piss you off somehow? Sure didn't intend to.

Bike design should be innovative and done by engineers, not artists. Performance and function should be the priorities, style and bling follow last.
Design should be done by engineers? Perhaps they should do my ironing as well.

Y'know Chickenman; I think I already like you.

And not just 'cuz of your handle, or the pic of that svelt supermodel you use as your Avatar..............

Don't mind longride; he's just a bit cranky 'cuz The Kook has been playing well with others lately, and longride hasn't had a chance to give 'im a good beatdown since MO-Two-Oh came online.

Yikes! People gave Terblanche (?) flack about the 999. This thing is disproportionate and looks like an a combination of two or three competing ideas. I will bet that thing is a real thrill in a crosswind.

Heh heh. If only you knew. The moderators have nothing to do with it.

If you crashed on that thing, it would be on Mars.

I like it--very cool-looking. I'm surprised to see so much negative response to such a unique design. Then again, I was never into cruisers. I don't like how it's mileage sucks and how the side compartments don't hold very much. I went to HD's website, and comparing this with their touring model, I can see how they're looking to the future, and not to the past.

It kind of reminds me of the Honda PC 800, but cooler looking. If I did tour, this bike would definitely be on my list of possible purchases.

Thumbs down 2 yays 11 pages of nays

Well so far we have to people that kind of might like it, and eleven pages of people hating on it. I have to say I like the 999 doesn't bother me a bit. As for the Rune it's not bad I like stuff that is kind of out there, if someone gave me one I would ride it. This thing on the other hand is hideous. I wouldn't even park my bike next to it. I feel sorry for Victory they are making some really cool bikes that have great styling. This thing is going to end up costing them a lot. I can't understand why someone didn't stop them. Everyone working on this must have had blinders on.

My "Vision" a huge kick in the balls for Victory.
