Default Victory riders are more exceptable to the riding community

HD riders seem to have lots of tattoos, long beards, and wear little to no gear. The Victory riders I see have no visible tattoos, little to no facial hair, and wear somewhat proper gear.

Is this observation in fact true, or have I not see enough Victory riders to form a better conclusion?

I love my Victory and am proud to own and ride it.

I can't speak for everyone but I have a beard and sometimes long hair.... Sometimes I let it go sometimes i cut it off. No tats. No gear.

Honestly I do not see many victorys on the road so its kinda hard to say what average vic rider looks like.

It's wrong to put people in categories based on superficial observations, but that being said, your observations are correct.

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

But will I be the only woman there?? LOL!

For the record, I suppose I don't exactly fit the "victory mold" that I have defined, as I have two tattoos, and thinking about a third! But finding a hidden tattoo can be a sexy thing, right???

Sorry to tell you but I have a beard, and Tats (firefighter ones at that) and am proud of what I do, how I do it and who I do it for...as well as what I choose to ride....it isn't the bike that makes a person a dirt bag.....that distinction belongs solely to the person....And just for the record the word is "acceptable" NOT exceptable......

The majority of riders I see have tats and don't wear the correct gear. I have tats, facial hair and don't wear the protective gear.

CR: Thanks for the pic of Sonny Barger on the Vision. It's always good to have proof.

The X Bones is the one HD I would still like to have. If I get a nice windfall I'd like to get one of those and a High Ball. If I could only have one; it would be the X Bones. Then I'd have two X bikes from very different worlds.
