At least he seemed to like the engine.

Not what I got out of it at all. He did not like the chrome for sure but neither am I a chrome fan. What he did say was if you are in that market you are probably looking at HD, you should definitely give the Vic a look, you'd be crazy not to. When you ride sport bikes then yes cruisers do not corner as well.

If everyone liked the same thing, Earth would be pretty boring. I personally like the Boardwalk much better than the KingPin, but that is why there are different models...

[EDIT] Forgot that the KP is discontinued after I typed this, but I still like the BW lol

The KP was no beauty queen, but it was a damn functional motorcycle.

If I want beauty queen, I'll get a Harley. To my eye, Vic's imitation is not in the same league.

I looked at the Boardwalk before I pulled the trigger on my KP August of last year. I personally thought the Boardwalk looks terrible. I remember thinking to myself that not a single person would buy that. To each their own right? But what's with that hideous seat?

I wouldn't walk across the street to piss on a Boardwalk if it was on fire, but I feel exactly the same way about the Harley.

I would buy a Yamaha (Star) Raider before either one...





Good handling, powerful out of the box...
