It looks like they still have a ways to go -- the schedule doesn't go past March.

I wonder if the Highball is going to be on the trucks before the dealerships get them. They would lose a lot of publicity if they don't have it until April when its officially released.

On a side note my dealership tells me they get constant calls and visits from people that want to see/ride the Highball. There seems to be quite a few people that miss that "April 2011" part of the advertisement...

Default High Ball is in the Fuel It Demo

Just went to Fuel It demo today, and to my surprise, there was a 2012 Victory High Ball available to test ride.

First I test rode a Cross Country, and then a Vision, since my wife was with me and I wanted her to enjoy the ride also. Besides, the first two rounds someone else had put their helmet on the High Ball already, so I had to be patient.

The High Ball was not stock, however. It had Stage II cams, and a set of black "Victory Performance" shot gun pipes. Naturally, she was loud. Loud enough but not too loud. On deceleration there was some loud popping, but I kinda liked it. Handling was great, but since I had just ridden a XC and then a Vision, it took about 5-10 seconds to get used to it. The High Ball felt great, and looks weren't bad either. Before I knew it, my wife whooped out her lil' camera and started snapping pictures.

Enough mumbling though. If you want to test ride a High Ball, see the Fuel It demo, coming at a Victory dealer near you!

CrossRoads,
Thanks for updating on the Highball; glad to see It's on the trucks! Now they have to get a truck scheduled closer to home. So far the closest one on schedule is 4.5 hours away.

No problem. It was worth riding the High Ball. If nothing else, at least to experience the Victory Stage II cams. She was fast!

The hot dogs were cold though, and they had nothing to drink.
