Default Harley versus Victory

The Big American Motorcycles

Let me start this discussion by getting to the bottom line. Harley is Harley. Only Harley is Harley. Victory is not Harley. Victory will never be Harley.

The other bottom line: Victory's Vision is a darn good motorcycle, with modern handling and great reliability, and a lot of Vision buyer's would be Harley buyers if Victory did not exist.

What's cool about Harleys is the classic design, the incredible low speed maneuverability, the fact that most things can be fixed in a parking lot with minimal tools, the ability to get help and usually parts almost anywhere, and, of course, the patented sound.

What's cool about Victory is that it's American built, has a fresh modern design, great handling, comfort like crazy, electric everything imaginable, and it seems to be reliable.

I spent the weekend with a group of riders on both bikes. They both have that big American V-Twin sound, although the Harley sound remains unique. The advantages of each are what you would surmise, especially if you have read reviews and test rides in the motorcycling press.

Personally, I believe that this is a great new addition to the American motorcycle genre, and that it will not only provide an alternative, but also spur Harley to new and better things, as well.

That was a rather thinly veiled troll for your firm.

Anybody who thinks a modern Harley "can be fixed in a parking lot" must be a personal injury attorney. "Yeah, I used the beer can tab to reset the EFI by shorting pins 4 and 9, then I loaded a new fuel map from my Pez dispenser." What a dope.

Oh yes. Harley is itching to design personal spacecraft too!

I'll bet this tactic worked real well on other forums, but the classy and highly intelligent members here at MO have thwarted the troll.
