No matter what, thats a nice looking bike!



You want ugly? Heres ugly!


I don't know what that is but, I want one in black and another in white. And then tons of scrap metal so I can make a B.A. MadMax type bike!

Looks like a late-model Goldwing.

You can say that about pretty much any Victory product.

Nup. A couple of simple mods and they're great dirt road cruisers.







I was in Oz last year for a few months and did 10,000k on one. Handles well on rough surfaces. I sold it when I left and now regret it. I'd have another. Best BMW I've ever had out of 7.

About all it takes to ugly up almost any bike is to put those short stubby mufflers on it. I can't help but wonder where that fad came from, hopefully it doesn't last to long.

I'll take two as well.

This is where we start telling Honda that we'll buy two each if they'll just build the darn thing.

Then later, we'll back off because the gas tank only holds 9 gallons and there's no electric windshield.
