First you'd have to get those nerds out of the house. Maybe you could slip poptarts under the door of their mother's basement.

Maybe even style the dash area like their mother's basement and then replace the goofy, mile-long handlebars with a joystick control.

I sat on one and checked it out from all angles and it's ugly in a Chuck Barris kind of way. Garish, tacky, ungainly, embarrassing are words that come to mind.
I always like Thew Gong Show. Maybe I'll get used to that Ugly Vision.

Instead of a helmet you can were a paper bag and ride around as the Unknown Comic.

I'm talking about the Hollywood guy that made all the ugly cars. Did I get the name wrong?

OK well if Chuck Barris designed motorcycles, it would look like the Vision.

They don't rely on Corperate for R&D and all the vital aspects it takes to operate Victory. These guys have done a fine job in starting, marketing and selling their products. Good for them. I'm glad that Victory is in this position. EH, Indian, Titan and gobbs of others should have been envious of the job that Victory has done. They actually may be.
Yes, Fuji Industries, the power behind Victory- Polaris. Just another Jap bike, trying to look like a Harley. Feh.

I think for the most part Victory's are pretty cool bikes. I specially like the Vegas, it's a nice clean well balanced design. If I wasn't such a Harley snob I might even buy one, in fact I think the '08 Victory's put most '08 Harley's to shame. I saw some guy riding a Vision on Superbikes last night, they all went to Sturgis to (and I quote) "represent".... any-who, the bike actually didn't look too bad in a dynamic state rolling along at different angles. I guess I should reserve judgment untill I can get a closer look, whatever the case my be I hope they make a go of it as a company.
