Might be the last 10 years of big money cruisers from Polaris. Also a lot less real expensive Corvettes around here too.
Did Honda say the VTX line isn't going anywhere, exciting things are going to happen next year just before they killed it? Bet not.Honda killed the VTX line of bikes (and many others) and they are still great bikes. I enjoyed mine. Polaris killed Victory and I'm enjoying my XCT. Such is life in the motorcycle business. Ride it then move to the next.
I've put more miles on the XCT than I ever did the Honda. Several factors in that but I did not buy the bike to sit still.
Yeah; I never forget either.Did Honda say the VTX line isn't going anywhere, exciting things are going to happen next year just before they killed it? Bet not.
I know full well I piss and moan about Polaris but I'm different than most, when I'm kicked in the balls I NEVER forget the kicker, with so many the betrayal has been forgotten, not by me it hasn't and it won't. Many items are already out of production, Polaris is sh!t and thankfully I've talked quite a few people out of buying Polaris and will continue to do so.
You make a good point.I'm some ways it was deja vu all over again for me. I was riding a BSA when they shut down in 1972, I had a couple of Norton's when they went belly up in 1976. Now days parts availability for Norton Commandos is better than it was in 1975, with better engineered parts. You can assemble one from parts if you want, and can afford it. You can still buy most parts for 70s Triumph Tridents and they only made about 40000 of them compared to about 100000 Victories. Keep riding them, keep fixing them, and if it all gets too much, hunt down some Buell or V Rod owners and cry into a beer with them.
