Default Late to the party....

I'm sorry but this morning was first time I've put eyeballs on the 2016 Victory cruiser line-up.......They are Kick-Ass! I love what Vic did with them this year and I'm totally drooling over the Vegas

The Vegas is bitching! However for me everytime I look at a Highball I want one. I have no idea why, I've NEVER been an apehanger kind of guy but for some unknown reason it was love at first sight. I actually had to talk myself out of it when I bought my XC. I looked for a Hardball but couldn't find one until AFTER I bought the XC. I don't want apes on the XC, for me, it ruins the lines of a very beautiful motorcycle.
My motorcycle is my transportation so the locking hard bags are a necessity. I'll test ride a Highball every chance I get and my face is frozen into a stupid grin every time.

Someday I'll own a Highball and I'll put 1 piece alloy wheels on it and paint it screw me red with some tasteful yellow pinstripe and a brown leather saddle and absolutely zero chrome. That's the ticket!

I always thought the highball would look sweet with a solid wheel. It's not a long haul bike to begin with, so who cares about crosswinds!

Here's one they had setup in Sturgis. Really like the wheels, matching frame color, and dark custom look on engine and trim.

You know what I'd do with the 2016 Vegas....?
Get rid of those ugly, quiet cans and install a Lloydz ATS...Then ride it everyday on all the short trips I don't take the XC on now, to work, the gym and on a lot more quickie runs to nowhere.

I still love the high ball and gunner. The high ball was the first victory I rode that made me say "I will be buying a victory soon" and then was having a tough time deciding that or gunner after loving the ride on the gunner. When an unexpected windfall came around I moved up to the XC but I still love those two rides. Surprising since I am not a fan of apes but the high ball was so comfortable.
