On Fox News Thursday evening and Friday morning, there were vid news clips of Mitt Romney at a motorcycle dealership in Greer, SC. At first, I thought I recognized a white XC headlight/fairing in the background. The next morning, when more was shown, there was the lit Victory dealer sign on the wall and they showed an autographed hood of some sort of blue ATV (maybe Polaris). No mention of the brand dealership, except that it was Greer, SC.

Anybody here a customer there?

No mistaking the bikes in the back of this shot from this article



He must've spoken twice because here is a totally different setting but the article was about the same event.



The story also has this quote in it.
As Mr. Romney tried to make his exit, the press pointed to a black motorcycle with orange flames fanning up the side, and suggested he hop on for a quick spin. Mr. Romney, who said that one of his sons had owned a motorcycle, laughed and shook his head.

“And maybe put on a helmet,” he joked. “Dukakis-style.”
This story identifies the dealership as Cherokee Trikes and more



BTW, I think there is a bit of a subtle message as to why he picked a Victory dealership. The last article states
A victory in South Carolina on January 21 would put Romney well on his way to the nomination.

Same dealer...

But totally different setting. One I saw was crowded and you could only barely get a glimpse the white handlebar to headlight of a an XC. It was the next day that I saw the sign. thx for digging this up. Still wonder what the connection was? Maybe dealer is Republican office holder, official.

Surprised it went un-noted here for a couple of days.

Thx for Nuthin

Maybe when un noticed, or un mentioned because nobody cares.
Thx for taking YOUR time to notice.:confused: And, maybe it doesn't have anything to do with politics.

Nothing to do with politics? Does that mean he's there to raid dealership, fire all the workers, and sell off the inventory to line his pockets?

He might be safer as a politician!

No, it means that MY interest in posting had to do with Victory, not his politics. I would have been equally surprised had the President shown up at a Victory dealer.

I'm unaccustomed to having political sniping permitted on specialty discussion boards. :confused:

Oh grab a hanky already Gootz. I'm just funnin with ya.

After all, nothing gets me more excited than watching a political charlatan sell snake oil at a motorcycle shop. Sure it's vastly more expensive than synthetic and utterly useless, but think of the comedic possibilities such encounters may spawn.

I have to admit, Sara looks kinda sexy in Harleyware:

Yes indeed as a federal employee Victory rider I'm worried...I live in the VERY expensive north east on a pay freeze that Romney and his buddies want to extend 5 years..but the cost of bread and everything else is going up. I just hope I won't have to sell my XC anytime soon...I'll be damneed:mad::confused:

People have no idea what Romney is about..Ron Paul is much more fair than he..But Romney is who they want and they will have him if he can beat Obama..I do not think he can, but I have been wrong before.

Government employees should be very concerned about Romney coming to office..They just might get the same deal the rest of us have..
Oh No! If that happens, who will be around to enforce gay marriage bans, shutter medical marijuana dispensaries, escort fruit pickers across the border, and most importantly, start us some new unprovoked wars?

Now, ponder for a moment: Why is the price of bread and everything else going up? :confused:

7$ corn and 11$ Beans have something to do with it. Corn was 2$ not that long ago..Farmers are banking real good. Life is good onthe farm.
So, you don't think that printing money that has no backing and borrowing heavily from "friends" like China has no effect on inflation? These are just two of many screw ups that have caused inflation. Go to the principal's office.

I thought you asked about the price of bread, not the value of a dollar..
