Default Greetings from Cleveland Ohio USA

Actually Parma, home of Big Chuck and Little John as well as Ghoulardi. I'm dating my age but that's ok.

Was thinking of buying a 2005 Victory Hammer Premium with 16k miles on it in "like new" condition.

Figured I'd start off here as I did my basic research. Once I've posted twice I'll post in the Hammer section for opinions/etc.

I'm currently on bike #34 at 56 years of age. Crazy, right?

Anyways, happy motoring and watch out for the cell phone idiots!!

A soggy hi from the Pacific Northwet. Hammers are the favored model of many Victory owners.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:
