I'm not the kind of person who bashes other people's bikes.....hell some people treat them better than their own kids....anyway isn't it amazing how Harley owners seem to have an enormous chip on their shoulders regarding Victory bikes. I've noticed they never miss an opportunity to take any little cheap shot they can while at the same time I also notice when we're around a bunch of bikes it's MY VICTORY most people stop to look at and comment on and just walk right by their same ol same ol bike that looks like every other bike parked on the curb. OK I'm done venting now. Love My XR!!!!!!
