Default www.victoryhid.com out of business??

So, I'm finally getting around to ordering a new headlight and found out that https://victoryhid.com/ is now out of business (as of June 9th). Anyone know where I can get an HID? Thanks!

I thought maybe Cross Roads sold that business a couple years ago. Or at least he tried to sell it.

All the best,

He tried to sell it. It was a part time thing for him. I guess it was no longer worth keeping up the stock with Victory shut down and the LED bulbs becoming more popular. I too would like to know where to buy another one if the one I have burns out.

I stopped advertising the heat shields I make for the same reason although I will still make them if someone wants them. I only made 6 or 7 this year. Most were for veterans or police.

I bet RicZ's lay down license plate holder have seen a big decline in sales too.

I know it's a pipe dream but I sure wish someone would start making the Victory's again. Someone other than Polaris but they won't sell the name because then it would be competition for their Polaris Indian line. Sadly; motorcycle sales, particularly big bikes, are down and probably not going to go back up. E-bikes are the next big thing and the young people just aren't into bikes or even cars like previous generations. They like their XBoxes and other video game machines better. They can't seem to grasp the difference is like watching a video of an ocean vs actually going to the ocean, walking in the sand, and actually getting wet by going into the ocean.

I'm happy to say I know there are lots of young people who still like to actually live life rather than see it through an LED screen. I just wish there were more of them.

Yeah thats sucks but hard to blame him. My first thought was...why didnt he put anything up to help those who have the system maintain it? Why keep everything secret?

I'm hoping he can enlighten us all. I don't use his HID anymore but there's a lot of people that do.
