So yesterday I took a couple hundred mile round trip for a fish sandwich. Along the way I stopped and got some gas. It was pretty pricey so I went with regular. I've done it before when it's cool out or when high test isn't available and never had any problem. The bike has a pretty low compression ratio, so I find it kind of surprising that Vic recommends it, but they do as I recall.
Anyway, it was reasonably cool and I wasn't running it hard, but at one point I did ask it to make a quick pass and as it approached redline I could hear it start pinging. I filled her back up with Premium today. As I did I got a question that keeps coming up when I get off it. "Hey dood, who makes that Victory? It sure is a pretty bike."
"And they shall know my name is Victory, when I lay my vengeance upon them."
