Hey all, just starting looking at the Hammer 8 Ball which brought me to this site. I was looking at the yamaha bolt, harley breakout, and the hammer 8 ball. The hammer really is looking like the best deal for the price. I am a fairly new rider and have only been riding for a year. But I am looking to getting into a bigger bike to ride with my wife. and I hear that Victory motorcycles are great and reliable.

Welcome to the forum Billy.
I think the Vic is a great bike but only you can decide if you really like it for you. My Vision is heavy at low speeds and actually weighs in at about 900 pounds after it is fueled. Even a year after I started riding I would not have been eager to deal with that kind of bike. As an experienced rider I just love it but it took time to feel comfortable on large bikes, any of them.

Welcome to the forum. might as well get the bike that will satisfy you and the wife, the bolt will not do that, although it will make you smile she will not be as happy on it.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker
