Default What do the MC clubs ride now that we have a choice?

I was curious if the clubs still adhered to Harleys only now that there is another American mfg.


After half a century riding Harley-Davidsons, Barger - an Army veteran who was raised during World War II and taught to buy American - now straddles a bike from a different U.S. manufacturer: a 2008 Victory Vision he purchased for $1 from legendary custom builder Arlen Ness.

No it is not just Harley most clubs have an American made policy at least here and in Southern California. At least if your talking about 1% clubs and more strict or older M.C.'s

That is funny because there is no American made bikes, just bikes that are assembled in America with a large portion of American made parts.

I'm in an MC and ride the only Victory. I dragged a prospect to the dealership when the demo van was there and now he's looking at one as well.

There isn't suddenly another American manufacturer. Besides the 15 year history of Victory, since the 80's there have been a couple dozen S&S and Revtech boutique builders and a slew of unique builders: Indian, Ridley, Confederate, Boss Hoss, Excelsior to name a few.
Victory is crafting a page in the history of American motorcycling. What it isn't is the only other chapter in the book.

We mostly go where we have to go

Didn't the 1% clubs define the words Custom and Chop Shop ?

As in, probably mostly Harley parts, but not all defineable...

We require American bikes only. But we aren't a 1% club. I'm not the only Victory in the whole club but I'm the only one in the chapter
