Default Two accessories I never thought I'd see

I never thought I'd see these two items from Ma Vic. I always thought it would be good advertising and HD has done it for eons... A trailer hitch cover and a window sticker set with the updated Victory logo. I know we could get non-official stuff like that off of e-Bay, but these are genuine Ma Vic stuff.......Part numbers 2863609 and 2863590. Picked them up at a Victory dealer in Calgary. I can take pics if you wish....

2013 AG-XC:
Gustafsson +2 Euro Flip
JWSpeaker 8695 LED Headlight
Ma Vic (Black Tri-Ovals/S1 Package, pull backs, derby covers,
heated seat, bag bars, shorty antennae)
Ness Rad III mirrors, Avon heated grips, Wolo Bad Boy air horn
RICZ's LD PL8 bracket and lotsa blacked out stuff
GOODY'S fork mounted lowers (3M'd)
Bag graphics & inner fairing, Bad Boys Design Peoria, AZ.

Artificial intelligence is absolutely 100% NO MATCH...............for natural stupidity!

I like my XR but I refuse to give free advertising to any company. I have always chuckled at the guys and girls running around with a HD logo on the back of their Camrys and Accords. A Vic logo on the back car glass just seems to be trying to hard to be like HD as well.

I agree with you about the advertising to a degree. I certainly take off the dealer stickers from the vehicles I have owned in the past. Same with the motorcycles...... But somehow, with the HD logo out there everywhere, and when people still ask me what a Victory is and who makes it, I thought I was doing my part for brand recognition by doing some advertising....the hitch cover was made in Saskatchewan, decals from Korea and there were 7 of them. Decals $17.00 CDN and the hitch was $30.00 CDN. I think they look great on my Ram.

So I'm curious, do you not wear any clothing with a company or team logo on it? No NFL/NBA/MLB etc? No beer shirts or shirts with bands, hats with the name off a golf ball manufacturer or even your buddy's business? If you have any of those, you are helping promote the business. It's not free of course, they paid to manufacturer that stuff.

I ask because I make my living manufacturing that stuff and I'm darn glad that there are millions and millions of people that have no problem wearing someone's image/brand/message.

I would put the Victory stickers on my car- if for no other reason- just to annoy the aforementioned Accord drivers with HD on their cars.

I don't mind the free advertising in exchange for letting other bikers know that I took the road less traveled. In the unlikely event that my sticker sells another Victory to someone that maybe I can ride with- good.

Sorry- but the whole "what's in it for me" thing is kind of silly to me.

I removed the Vic badges from my bike for looks but I have to say that on almost every ride someone asks me what model harley my 8ball is. Amuses the heck out of me. I always let them know that it's a Vic and talk a while if the situation permits. Victory gets plenty of free advertising out of me in this way but I choose not to wear logos if I can avoid it.
