Best bike I ever owned is my 2012 XCT.

I thought the slogan, "Ride one and you'll own one" was a gimmick. No gimmick. I rode one and promptly went out and bought one...haven't looked back. No buyers remorse, NO HARLEY HUNTING! I loves my bike!!

Here's a good starting point. Grab some popcorn and enjoy.

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

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

If you have to ask, we may not be able to help.

Go ride both and get what you feel is best for you. If you have to have something, the list is long and subjective, however cost of ownership should be far less than a HD.

You have to love it, so get what you love.

I never can understand these kind of questions. Buy what you like. Ride them both and buy the one you like. I owned a HD and really liked it then I rode a Victory and I really liked it. Both are good high quality bikes and both will be fun.

Blame it on me

2013 Vision Sunset Red

Harley has...
...no room for your feet (teeny-tiny footboards)
...no power (compared to Victory HD's are almost anemic)
...no modernism (buy a 1994 as it will look the same)
...no suspension (2-inches of travel vs. Victory's 4-inch)
...no reliability (see videos above for why the Vics are more reliable)
etc




It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!

Mike comes off like such a jackass. Vic does a better job...
