I would buy an older Harley more as a toy but not as a daily rider. I still like the looks of stock pans and admire the very early sportsters as well as the later cafe racer xlcr but i think Harley lost its passion for motorcycling. However if i was looking for beef jerky, toilet seat covers, billiard tables and supplies, wheel covers and floor matts, pet supplies and coffee and beer with a bar and shield logo i would shop at a Harley dealer.

I'm not a Harley or a Victory owner, but I can tell you Victory builds much better motorcycles than does Harley. Harleys are nothing more than overpriced cult bikes.

I'm 39 and have been riding for the past 15 years.I have owned many bikes, and ridden many more. I sell Harley's for a living. I have had the opportunity to take a Trade in home (05 Vegas) and get a good feel of what the bike is all about. If you want to compare Harley and Victory you need two separate scales. Harley is bound by tradition and Victory is not. Harley has tried to put out a more modern power plant (V-Rod) with luke warm results. If Victory did that now I think they as a company could get away with it. A lot of it has to do with they way the buyer and company come together.

One thing I noticed with Victory is their use of clear coats on their parts. Triple tree and wheels. They are so easy to clean. Try that with Harley wheel. A very thin clear is on there that wears off fast.
I understand what each camp is trying to achieve. Harley just enough protection to cover it but let the natural finish shine through. Victory More protection that does hide some of that beauty. You may see Harley riders cleaning their bikes more often... there is a reason for it. Harley Paint it a little thicker and softer. That means you can rub out minor scratches easier. Victory is more like automotive paint thinner and harder. A little tougher to get that scratch out without going through the clear. Both are nice bikes. Just two different tastes in styles.
