I wonder if Mark Blackwell still has those wooden cloggs John Penton gave him?

Well it's not like they're going to wear out, besides who would get rid of anything John Penton gave him?

They have? Where did you get that info?
I made it up, of course.

Seriously, I didn't mean that in an immediate sense, like they'd made gains last year, just that their overall pattern since their start has been going that way.

Cool

I know of two Dealers near Tampa that have closed their doors. One of the shops my prior co-worker was employed at. He used to bring over different Victorys for me to test ride from time to time. One model he brought which the name has escaped my memory, after about ten min I noticed the bike pulling hard to the right. So I put it in neutral at about 15mph and let go of the handle bars. It almost made a right hand turn? When I got back I asked my buddy what was up with that, he replied "you have to get the shorter pipes so its more balanced?" I thought to myself what a joke?

All Iam going to say is you better intend on passing it down to your kids kids, I have alot of people that try trading them and their even willing to take a hugh hit, and that still isnt good enough. "Bought it for 23k, it has 5500 miles books says its worth 17k and I'll take 14K? When I reply where only willing to go 12k on it, sorry?

I kind of liked the original V92C. It had clean, simple lines.

I guess no one else liked it, though. They had to gussy the bikes up to get them to move.

Has anyone actually seen one of the new Cross Roads or the Cross Country? The local dealer hasn't got any in and couldn't tell me when he would. The dealer here is moving lots of bikes though. I've seen a lot of Vics on the road around here, even a Vision or two.
