Default Victory New Years Resolution

So I received this Victory New Years Resolution List from Ma Vic and was wondering if any could add to this list.

I don't know about adding to it but I would take away:
#3 - My memory is not the best but I can at least remember where I ride my bike to.
#8 - Gunny seems kind of cool but have no interest in meeting him.
#10 - Same as Gunny, don't really care about the Ness's either.
#11 - I can not stand group rides, but one should still give to a charity of his/her choice.
#13 - I don't know many guys who are willing to hop on the back of a bike with another guy and go for a spin.
#17 - Not much on free advertising, especially the the high prices they want for their gear plus it is all made overseas anyway.
#21 - That kind of statement may end up having some people jump to another brand after the test ride!

I would love to go out west and ride some of the roads mentioned though. I am blessed to live in one of the best places in the East to ride a motorcycle but taking a ride up that mountain in Colorado sounds awesome!

Concur with most of TNXR. See comments below:
#3 - Yup, I know where i been. If you want us to use your app make it work with GARMIN and GOOGLE Maps able to download to the GPS glitch free...
#8 - Gunny would be cool to meet but I would want him to sign my copy of FMJ and we talk about Pyle and Joker doing some best clips from the movie or talking about mail call.#10 - Obviously the PR idiots got ahold of this. Who gives a rats ass about NESS and you don't have the common curtiousy to suggest we visit LLoydz, Rylans, KevinX or some of the other mechs that make possible for our bikes to PERFORM. Thats way more important that bling. Again, dumb as PR office
#11 - Im not big on group rides either and should be use your VIC to participate in a charity event. Bike show, performance, or if you wish a ride.
#13 - TNXR you missed the ball on this one. Im all for this. My daughter has some really "impressive" friends that like the VIC brand and would like to ride along with some friends of ours and a couple neighbors. Agreed though as I gave up male two up riding in the 9th grade. Just saying, this has possiblities...
#17 - 100% BS!!!!! Sales got ahold of this one. Check the price on your "clothing", where it's made and MAYBE the threads here on it... Then when you adjusted accordingly maybe suggest it. Personnally, I didnt by a VIC to say I bought the TShirt.
#21 - That is crazy. I still have that urge for a RoadGlide.. Thats what I was looking at when I got into VIC and its still there. Have always loved that bike and if I ride it again who knows what might happen.. Have they never heard of IMPULSE buying.

My 2 cents are:
#4 RIding to Spirit Lake for a tour. Better get some better explination on this as MANY have had issues doing this. Have you heard of the Web?
#6 I like (not because I am a Vet) but also recognize our Fire and Police (sheriff) taking care of the homefront and recognized by Vic. Vic does a pretty decent job on recognizing this and its appreciated.
#23 I am flat PISSED about. Where are their heads at? This is REALLY number 23? Friggin morons! Have they not tracked what many VIC riders have been doing with their machines? Rollin has been publicized in a couple articles and I have seen some other riders on Vics doing some wild stuff that gives credit to the durability of the line's and power plant (yes some have had issues) but if your #1 is ride your VIC more what IBA at the end. Yes, I have become addicted to extended riding especially with the Vision in the stable. Learn more about what your posting guys, the IBA memorial ride does just that and is well documented on the site. Introducing non-IBA riders to endurance riding and a cause to ride for.

So, biggest thought on this is clarification but overall a good start Ma. I just started working some rides for this year and this is a nice touch.

Safe riding all!!!

21. I did this. If the numbers would have worked I'd be riding it. Too soon after Vic purchase. This is the first bike I have ever looked forward to trading this soon. Nice rider, but for 14 HD has punted them out of the door on almost every aspect. Ride (if you are really tall or think you have to ride sprawled out like a deer being gutted, then it ain't for you), lined bags, removable liners with purchase, 3 year warranty, improved power (wasn't prepared to be impressed but was), LED lighting all around, paint, fit, finishes, ergo's (improved), radio, Bluetooth, voice commands, electrics don't freak out if they get wet,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Supposedly the engine in the Vic is better from the ground up, I can't say one way or the other. Pushrods are "old school" but take a look at the shining star for Polaris, Indian.
All the things mentioned and then some, for about $1K more than the XCT was listed and the shops in my area demand, so FWIW,

Resolution#1 should be to get their act together.

I have always been about as anti-HD as they come for many reasons, but they are doing some interesting things all of a sudden.

YMMV

Some people go their whole life wondering if they made a difference, Marines don't have that problem.~ Ronald Reagan

2012 XCT, AFR+ Gen 4, Lloydz air filter. I don't equate noise with power.
I ride with the Force.

I have to agree, HD is not letting the new Indian slow them down. The only downside to an HD for me is that they are just too cramped for my 34" inseam (plus more expensive). My XR is the first bike I ever rode that fit me out of the box. From what I have read the Indians are not designed for long legged folks either.
