I like Victories myself, I think they have some well put together bikes with decent styling and performance. Even the much-maligned Vison is pretty sharp looking out on the road. What they need is more dealers but they probably don't have the numbers yet to support a stand-alone network. Too bad because they're IMO pretty decent bikes.

Well that's true, I don't like them more than Harleys but they're nice bikes just the same.

I kinda' figured you'd buy one and ride it out here, after three or for gunniess's you should be loopy enough to leave the keys layin' around...

Other than the Bad Vision, I'd ride any of these guys out there as long as the fridge of yours is stocked with beer!

Ten years (sniff). It all goes by so fast (sigh). Hopefully, they'll be around in 50 years and I'll still be around. I'll say to the youngsters, "When I was your age..."

I have a friend that works at a Victory dealer. From time to time he brings over bikes to let me ride just to get my feedback on them.

Exquisite(trying to impress longride) motorcycles to say the least. However I rode one model(?)Victory, that prompted me to take my hands off the bars mainly cause it felt like it wanted to pull to the right.
(Exhaust location) So I did,...and it about took me off the road.

Strange I thought, so I asked my friend after returning to my house, whats the deal with it pulling to the right? When he replied "Oh you've got to get the shorter exhaust because those weight too much". I was like huh thats stupid, how much is this thing?
