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.
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.

After dragging parts on the Street Glide in some nice curves today and reminiscing about my SV days I am, and have been, lusting after a Ktm 990 SMR as the next addition to the stable..... but then I think about an Adventure R. What's a fella to do?

Thanx for the tip & yes I did go to Bert's, its a great place. I was actually planning on going to the victory demo in october that they have in southern california. If that doesnt work out Ill certainly head over to Brea

I was out riding my old 1980 Wing tonight. I really like riding Gold Wings.

This makes me consider trading the ZX-14.
