I totally agree. I really like the design of the victory engine with the 4 valve per cyl, overhead cams, gear drive primary, simple oil change, stator location, starter, etc.
I do wish Victory would have cleaned up the controls a bit especially for the cruise control and audio controls and incorporated them like Harley and Triumph Trophy. Thats just me being nit picky tho. The main thing is that it is reliable with decent power and handling while being comfortable. I commute a lot to work on my bike which is 165 miles round trip so reliability and comfort is a must on my next bike.
