If the future of motorcycling is in the hands of those two bozos motorcycling is doomed. Their companies have done nothing but lose lately. Odd choices for keynote speakers.

Be nice to have a group show up to Heckle Wince and tell the HD CEO to buy out the Vic line since it's already improved and sleek. Betcha both HD and Vic sales would run to the roof because even HD guys know what the bikes are capable of.

Slap a HD sticker on them and they wouldn't be afraid to be seen on one by their poser buddies. Plus they would have a bike they upgrade easily and have a reliable machine.

Maybe we should protest the Indian name as racist too...lol.

They were a good bike too. Many hoped they would come out with a bagger version. I would have test road one if they did.

Cycle Vision designed the V rod bagger. Only problem the V Rod never had enough power to be a bagger you need to build up the motor
