What An Awesome Friend
A few weeks ago I was at a biker event on my CCT. This was the first time a brother from another motorcycle ministry saw my bike without the trunk installed. He and his wife both rode Victory's for many years. Sadly, they both traded them in shortly after the January announcement from Polaris Industries. Yes, that's right, they're both now on Harley's. I don't fault them a bit.
Anyway, he asked if I had the Victory Lock & Ride backrest to which I said no. He said "I have one, with the luggage rack in chrome. You can have it all for $50.00." I said you could sell it for decent money on eBay or on the Victory forums. He said he'd rather I have it. I saw him tonight at another event we both go to on the 3rd Sunday of each month. He brought it with him figuring he'd see me their. Oh yea, I gave him much more than his asking price. It was raining pretty hard and we were both in cars instead of on the bikes. I installed it when I got home and cleaned off the dust from sitting on a shelf in his garage. It looks brand new! It's the original 2 screw unit that was recalled but I don't really care at this point. It's unlikely Polaris would exchange it for the new style at this point anyway. But I'm thrilled to now have a Lock & Ride passenger backrest with the luggage rack as well as my CCT trunk. I've had my trunk off since I installed the Victory extreme saddlebag audio kit. I love the look but I do miss the storage space when I make a grocery store run.
All the best,

"That's a beautiful Victory!"
"Who makes it?"
Who turns Victory into defeat? Polaris Industries, that's who.
