    I know I shouldn't;
    but I keep looking at bikes and arriving at the same search pages "Victory motorcycles"!!

    I have a newly sorted T120 2016 which has been teased back to life after an off (someone else) and not even put 100mls on it, but here I am looking at Victory bikes??



    I feel like I am looking at porn while missus in bed; heading for a painful divorce!!

    Is this just lockdown fever or do I need to see a shrink or possibly less alcohol?

    I need help guys coz I aint got no money (although Zopa like me I think-emails every second day)

    Oh dear, lock down fever for certain, while OK to look DO NOT TOUCH the wallet or plastic!
    Victory motorcycles were shut down by Polaris industries in Jan 2017. You could end up with an expensive ornament

    I know I might have a loose screw or two, but the Victory that I liked was the Highball. I cannot explain why ...J.D.

    Yeah they appear to be what a Harley could be if they allowed a development engineer to get to work back in the nineties.

    They look pretty, my brother in law sold his for something like £15k and saw it recently sold for something like £30. Parts were guaranteed for 10yrs, but there is no saying that wouldn't get extended or licenced on, suspect they will hold classic interest. I think they should have traded as Polaris from the beginning and evolve through big scrambler to road.

I wonder if it would have been more successful trading as Polaris from the beginning and have have the range link to the quads through big scrambler to road. More like KTM.

    I thought they were a viable option if you wanted an American cruiser but did not want it made out of an old air compressor connected together by old plumbing parts like a harley. ...J.D.

    Having hired them stateside compared to the Harley the engine to me was streets ahead and much easier to work on , its was a shame Polaris industries stopped production but they wanted to concentrate on the Indian brand

    Yup seen that one before was interesting and shows what can be done if you are prepared to evolve!!
    Unfortunately Harley and its enthusiasts in US will probably be the death of the company just like ours in 70/80s
