You're not helping. Or are helping. Take your pick.
I went to the Victory Truck test rides at my local dealer. Thought the Judge would be the bike for me. But the sucker has the worst cornering clearance of any bike I had ridden. On just normal turns the bike scraped the ground. I then rode the Cross Country and once moving it felt like a sport bike compared to the Judge. I tried to get the CC to drag and couldn't do it.
The current Classic is rolling into history. The new models rolling off the truck are the Stone, Special, and Racer. And yes, its more nimble and lighter (kinda go hand-in-hand).
Fixt that for ya.
Strange, I rode one at Daytona last year and didn't scrape anything. I rode a Cross Country as well and while it was a good bike, I didn't find it nearly as fun to ride as the Judge.
The bike I kept scraping boards on was the Kawasaki Vacquero, That thing seemed dangerous to me.
I think the styling is really good - it's classy and timeless, not overdone like the Stratoliner and Roadliner. I like the newer Victory's, but I think they cost too much. I like Kawi's 1700's and the 2000 LT, which may still be a possibility. Looking back at old comparison tests though, the Honda got better reviews. Much better. I like the Triumph Rocket 3, just not sure I would want to live with something THAT big day after day. Suzuki? Well I have sworn off Suzuki's, but to be honest, the M109R SE really blows my skirt up. I have heard of lots of people having clutch problems with them, and I doubt Mrs. B. would like it.
Like I said, I like the styliing of the Honda VTX1800 line. Never heard an owner say one bad word about them, other than they can be a bit thirsty (true of all big cruisers, right?). And they're Hondas. They should last forever, and blow my buddy's $45,000 Harley into the weeds. And that's important!
and then there is this. It was one of the first RR's I read when I started hanging around here, and it has really stuck with me. This guy took an old fashioned overweight out of production Honda for one heckuva ride.
I've ordered it but have to wait a few weeks but I want it today
Why must we always have to wait for new toys?
Today, a well farkled xrl650 that I'd use to explore the desert.
Did you sell your MegaMoto...?:huh
Does anyone else see some style similarities?
The thinking man's hot rod.
you really seem to have found your unicorn then just ride the snot out of it, don't let it sit!
I wish we could get bikes like that here.
