I’ve ridden them plenty, and can attest to Victory’s claim that it sports some of the finest ergos in cruiserdom. The floorboards on its touring bikes are the largest in their class and allow the rider to practically kick back and put his feet up – but it’s the tough-as-nails Judge that nets the brand’s top score on Cycle-Ergo.com, with a knee-bend angle of 120 degrees.
Even more than the knee angle, though, the muscle car-inspired Judge relies on a 25.9-inch seat and forward handlebar placement to stretch the rider out. It’s a comparatively aggressive pose for a cruiser, but one that rides with long arms and legs should find favorable. And it suits the bike perfectly.
