I went to a large dealer in my area and got to sit on a lot of bikes (sadly they don't allow test rides). One of my old favorites (vmax) fell from its throne the second I sat on it. Uncomfortable and funny sitting position...but I did find a new favorite, or 3 lol

the victory cross country (and I the touring version is super nice to)

the Victory Judge

and the speed triple

The part I find funniest was before I got to see and sit on the victory's I couldn't stand the way they looked from online pictures & now two sit at the top of my list.

My buddy just bought a 2-stroke bike, and can't stop talking about the characteristic power surge (aka power band). Being a fan of Honda, and all things old school, I want one of these from the early 80's.

Man, I used to LUST after one of those when I was a kid. My folks had a No Bikes rule, but I used most of my paper route money buying dirt bike magazines and dreaming of the day when I could finally afford one.

Never did buy it, though. :)

Sounds like you might have gone to Bert's. Try the Victory dealer in Brea - they have a demo program, or hit the Victory website and you can get inundated with offers for test rides at a dealer near you. You'll be impressed with the Victory line.

Don't have a good option of the Triumph.
