Default What Harley Owners think about Victory

The longest threads here are Harley threads. Wonder if the reverse applies? A Victory owner asks in HD Forum..

When I owned my HDs that was probably my least favorite forum. I preferred the V-twin forum and the shark tank. One thing I did notice about the thread you linked was that comments were all about appearances, not content. HD fanatics just don't like the way our bikes look, except the one guy who didn't like the AZ Victory series on you tube. 8 pages of "I think its ugly" before I gave up reading. I guess a garage queen must be pretty at all times regardless of other factors.
Run it may but shine it must.

I have had a ID over there for a while now as a buddy of mine had a RG so I went ahead and posted a little something to give them some target practice...

Yea most the comments we are the red headed stepchild. Guess they don't like our taillights. That's alright they don't have to like my bike. I pay the bills, what I like is all that matters.

Mostly curious around here. A few have been crabby, but they probably are just that way. Most have lots of questions and compliments. Well, at least as long as I was around. LOL

I would be surprised if your thread lasted very long.

I've taken a lot of grief from a few close friends who ride HD since buying the Victory. The Harley Davidson marque has become a philosophy over the last couple of generations. A company that in the past has been mis-managed to the point of near extinction and has arisen from that to become what is perceived as a premier top tier manufacturer. The majority of those who ride HD really don't care what's inside nor how it works but revel in the fact that they are now able to afford one or at least get a bank to finance one for 72 easy payments.

Personally I've never been one to want to have what everybody else has. Although I quit going to Sturgis a decade ago I remember walking down the main drag the year that the 100th came out. I couldn't imagine coming out of a bar or a shop and trying to find which one was "mine".

Well it's up 75 posts now. I would have gotten a street glide but I feel like there's a million of them out there. I just wanted something different.....and yes I heard about it from my HD friends!

With all due respect....why do we care ?

If we for example drive a Ford...do we really care if the Chevy guys agree with our choice ?...obviously they don't....

Personally I do not need to justify my purchases with the approval of someone else...no matter what the item may be....jus-sayin'

I read every post of the 8 pages on the HD forum ... Just as I suspected Victory gets no love from HD owners .... My only reply is , and no disrespect to my many HD owning buddies on THIS forum , But I am 46 , been riding since I was 16 , I have never owned a HD , never wanted an HD , I have never liked anything about HD , and compared to the looks of a Victory motorcycle , they look antiquated and clunky . If I was ever given one or won one in a contest , it would be up for sale in less then a nano second . Every one I ever knew that owned a HD , including my Father were complete hunks of crap , and shook like a dog shittin razor blades , and leaked oil all over the garage floor ... Lest I say , I will never own one .
