That site's rating are fueled by user ratings. Being that boulevards, Vstars and Dynas are just about the most prevalent cruisers on the road the ratings make sense. Remember- Victory owners are still a pretty exclusive group.

I don't know about the Superglide, but the new Switchback that I demo'd was crap. I'm not too thrilled with what Vic is doing with their cruisers either, but they are far better than that. Hard for me to believe the Switchback shares a lot of the same internals with the Harley touring bikes. It feels far slower, doesn't go around corners particularly well, and vibrates on and off all the way thru the rev range. If that's typical of their new Dynas, I don't know how the hell they are rated so high unless it's a popularity contests and the SG has the most owners.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! That is it in a nutshell. Its based on owner ratings, so what bikes have the most owners get the best ratings.

The C50 makes sense, those things are everywhere. They are also cheap, dependable, and easy to ride.
