Over 83 mph on a V-Twin cruiser! It must have been terrifying.

Now, see, if the bike on the showroom floor looked like that, and ran like that, I'd buy one!

166mph on a Victory cruiser is scary in my book!

What- no mirrors, no lights, 'sporty' exhaust, a handlebar that's maybe 18" long, a vestigial rear fender and geared to the moon? And an engine that is 'engineered' to produce a lot of grunt for at least a couple of miles?

I dunno; why don't they have them on the showroom floor...?
