Default Experienced rider looking at the Highball

Been a lurker around here for quite a while, and have recently started looking seriously at a Victory. I currently ride a Buell XB12STT and have been wanting something that I can just relax on and ride.

Default Good Choice

The Highball will definitely give you the more relaxed ride you are looking for. Make sure to take a test ride to see if you like the ape hangers. The Boardwalk is probably the most laid back ride in the Victory lineup and the Judge may be the easiest transition coming off of the Buell.

Neat thing about Vics is they are Jekyll and Hyde bikes. They are happy to relax or romp...cruise or carve. I used to keep at least two bikes in my garage, at one point I had six. Today, I have just one cuz it does everything I need my bike to do and it does it sooo well.

Default very smooth

i was buggin for a new ride so i tested a buell xb12scg, handles well of course but the vibs like my 70 bonneville i had. i had an 06 sportster highly upgraded tested a NOT to super glide, rode a 13 hammer, i could not believe how much better although a firm ride, i purchased it + love it!!! engine is light years ahead of any harley except the v-rod, as stated ride them all and take your pick, preowned bikes can save a lot as well, i got a killer deal on mine trading my sportster at a harley dealer!!!
