Default !!!!! I don't understand all the hype !!!!!

Ok, ok maybe its just me but seeing the High Ball which is nothing more than a lightly modified 8 Ball. Why all the hype from Victory? Did they do this when the 8 Ball was introduced being it was an all blacked out Vegas?
Most people here know I'm a HUGE Victory cheerleader and even though I like the look of the High Ball, what a waste with all the hype from Victory but then again I'm one of the suckers that bought into the hype and watched the live feed.

Yeah, this was way too much drama with no substance. I like the bobber as it provides a new variation to chose from, but it's nothing more than yet another sub-model.

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

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

There was some chatter on Huze' blog about Victory possibly building a sport bike like Buell got interrupted doing. I can't say that's a bad idea if Victory REALLY wants to offer more than variations on cruisers. I'm impressed with what Triumph has undertaken in just 20 years - they have something for virtually every taste. And they still keep producing more new product. Victory needs to work at "branding" so outsiders will recognize the bikes and logos. There needs to be another TV show like "along Came Bronson" only this time, its a guy and a gal on Victorys, saving people in distress.

2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

Default Poor casting

You know, Victory could have done alot better in the presentation of the new Highball. Is that the BEST they could do with the emcee of the program, a giddy blond bimbo, who giggled her way through the entire program. Their PR department should all be, as Donald Thrump would say, YOUR FIRED! As for the new bike, its cool.

At first I wasn't all that impressed but as I look at it a bit more; I'm seeing it in a different light. I've thinking that I might build one more bike from the ground up or get aHarley Dyna to mess with but I like the stance and suspension along with the power of this one much more than I did at first. It's growin' on me. We'll see. I'd have to get a windfall to get it anyway right now.

I think Natalie Jackson was hot in a slightly slutty kind of way. But then that's how I like my women; a little on the slutty side.

You guys missed the part where she was simulating a BJ with the microphone and someone told her that they are live. This was about 4 or 5 minutes before the presentation. LOL
