I met with @broggyr last night for dinner, it was a pleasure meeting you!!!

I met with @RICZ a while back and had lunch with him, again it was a pleasure meeting you and learning a few things from you.

I almost met @ScabbyDoo when he was in town but it didn't quite work out, next time for sure.

I've ridden with @BenD, @jokerman, @Jamming and @Tarzan.


Lesson here, the best people ride Victory Motorcycles and those people Polaris can't kick to the curb. Pretty cool when a motorcycle builds friendships.

It was my pleasure to have met you too, Vindex. I have always maintained, that since they came out, especially with the Cross bikes, that Victorys are the thinking man's bike. That's why you meet quality people who ride them. One generally buys a Victory for intellectual reasons rather than emotional ones, or God forbid, peer pressure which causes one to buy the wrong bike for the wrong reasons. When I see a Victory rolling down the road, I know I am seeing a rider with good taste and common sense. We are entitled to feel proud.

This Victory family will get smaller, more exclusive and more clannish as time goes on, and I hope to continue to meet many of you.
I was watching a Hot Rod show recently where the vehicle owner had his classic muscle car since it was new, over 45 years, seeing it through several incarnations from grocery-getter to drag racer to yard-art, and was finally ready to resto-mod it to its original appearance but with modern running gear. It gave me a warm feeling to know I could do the same with my Victory if I chose to because it's a guaranteed classic now! I've got all the time in the world to hop it up, drop it down, trick it out, and make it like nobody else's. I really like that idea
