Default victory vetrans badges

I've read that us vetrans could get a Victory vetrans badge. The dealer I purchased the bike after test riding on Vetrans day, (then purchased a 2011 Cross Country)from was not aware of where or how to get one. Anyone out there have the info I need to obtain one?

Thanx...Mike

I'm likely wrong, but I was under the impression that all bikes sold on that Thursday would come with the veteran badges (regardless to whom they were sold). If you only test drove on Veteran's Day but purchased a different day you might be out of luck. Maybe someone else knows more on this topic and they can be more helpful.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Are you talking about the military salute badge? Round pewter color with an eagle and Victory Miltary Salute in white. My dealer had a bag of these andsince my DL says vet, they gave me one.

No, those pins were made available for anybody visiting the dealers on Veteran's Day - no purchase necessary. I believe sgtfixit was asking about the cheese wedge badges (pictured below). Otherwise, if he's asking about the pins, then those are the pins!

Here's the link to Victory's Veterans Day promotion.

http://www.polarisindustries.com/en-...yBadgeSet.aspx

The badges were available to that day only. They were manufactured by Barracuda Custom Accessories (http://store.barracudacustom.com/) so you may be able to get them from the manufacturer.

Good find.

I don't see how the manufacturer (B.C.A.) would be able to sell any since the bikes sold on that they were labeled as limited edition. It would nullify the "limited edition" label. That being said, the Barracuda folks do make custom ones.

Those are them! I asked the dealer about the pin, as well as the badges. He was not helpful on either. I sent email to polaris...no answer.

Not to complain too much, but it would be nice to score one of each. If they advertise somnething...they should at least try to back it up. I signed the purchase order on veterans day. And yes...I'm a vetran of both gulf wars, retired after 21yrs as an AF SP. I spent waaaay too much time playing coyboys and insurgents in the big kitty litter box.

Hopefully you qualify, you should since you signed on the date of the promotion. You may have to send an email to the Victory website. Another thing you may want to try is going to the Victory Facebook page and posting your question for all to see. There are Victory employees that watch Facebook. I think one of them is dshelleny (probably spelled wrong).
By the way I spent 21 years as an AF Ammo troop. Thanks for watching the gates; I hope you never jacked me up! To those unfamiliar with AF terminology that means detained me. . .

Hey, Thanks for serving. Unfortunately Victory didn't make the badges for veterans (which I agree, they should have - you guys deserve them). Fortunately for you, it sounds like you've made the purchase on the right day. Polaris should be mailing you cheese wedges. Don't bother with your local dealer for those.

The pins on the other hand, those were given to dealers to hand out. If your local dealer didn't give you any, try the next Victory dealer. They should at least give you a pair of pins for being a veteran.

Check with different dealers. If you can not find 1 let me know, that is of course you are military or retired military.
I might can get ya 1

Badges are for the cheese wedge
A pin is a pin

Can't help with a badge

The reason I said military or retired military that's the only way I can get 1

2011 Cross Country
If everything fails read the instructions
