Default Bike week in Daytona will never be the same again

Wonder how the 100,000 Harley riders will react to this?

Well, it does blend in with the asphalt. Shouldn't be too hard to sneak up on the drunken Harley pilots.

Love the quote from the article that says, "Because every Victory Motorcycle delivers industry-leading power, braking, and handling, VPM does not need to make any performance or handling modifications to the motorcycles it provides to law enforcement agencies."

I'd be curious as to what the "landed" price is on a VPM compared to Harley Davidson. My guess is that the savings to the city is going to be substantial.

Wondering how many of the HD owner police officers will make the switch after driving these Vics.

“Every other year our agency ordered new motorcycles, and we were at the mercy of whatever new advances were made to the bike itself, which usually wasn’t much,” said highly decorated DBPD Traffic Unit Officer Jason Kilker.




OUCH!

Rossmeyer used to lease them at $1 each per year. That may have changed since his death.

Interesting. I do have a question though. Tyler PD runs Victory now, and they are all badged as 106. I wonder if all the Vic police bikes are from VPM. Evidently not, or the package the local PD has just kept the 106 cheese wedge to lower the questions.

I guess a PD package can come in all flavors, however the Vic is a much nicer handling machine. BTW, the police in Tyler seem to like them a lot.

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