Any one on here stunt their Vic? I feel like all are more geared toward the bobber look but none are PBM.

Pardon my ignorance but what do "stunt" and "PBM" mean in the context of motorcycles?

G'day,

PBM= Purpose Built Motorcycle

Stunt= Wheelies and all that stuff.

Pretty sure OP is a troll.

That's was a serious question. I tried looking it up. Found the factory team do burnouts and a wheelie but that's about it

Why would you "stunt" a v-twin?

Yeah sure I'm sure it was a serious question mate ....

It may be safer doing endo's and wheelies then riding in to work .

They are all purpose built motorcycle led. The purpose on mine is increasing torque and power for the purpose of less drag on the motor at highway speed for better fuel economy. I'm up around 52mpg, average, where as my truck gets, at best, 19mpg.

Why wouldn't you? They have all that torque!
Your own answer as per below, ha ha i suggest to take a bagger for your stunts ?? Can you post a picture of your bike please ?

Dang that sucks man. Honestly dude I wouldn't waste my time with a xc cuz you end up the laughing stock of the bagger world. So it's like the laughing stock of the laughing stock. Get something you can still have some fun with coming off a gsxr. Try a Dyna

Yeah rode the XC and the Electra and the road and an Indian chief. I felt like the XC was the short bus of all of them. Can't handle turns without scraping floor boards through it

Personally, I think stunting should not be done on public roads. If you "have to" do it on public roads, don't do it on major highways or where there is lots of traffic. I don't have any sympathy for stunters that get hurt when they crash into other cars while stunting.

I don't know if I am ready to try that **** again...I rode sportbikes back in the day then had to take a ten year break and now I'm back on two wheels with this vegas. I wouldn't mind getting back into wheelies, but I think I would need a spare rat bike to practice with...don't want to wad this thing up just yet and the slightly forward controls make it a bit more hard to do, i would think.

...check out Redlight King's video, Born To Rise and tell me that **** doesn't look like fun.

Isn't 52 mpg really on the lean side. Is your highway speeds above 65 mph
