I read this morning that the TV show will introduce Victory's to the lineup next season. Something about getting tired of giving Harley free advertisment.
I say its a dam good idea and I cant wait to see how it all plays into season 5.

@sutterink: Introducing VICTORY & other great US-made bikes on SOA in S5. Tired of giving Harley free advertising. Time to give folks an HD alternative.

Looking around I found this pic



Maybe they will have Lenny the Pimp (Sonny Barger) ride it



I am not a 1%er and my knowledge is limited to TV, websites, and seeing them at rallies. To the best of my knowledge, 1%ers don't ride anything but Harleys.

The overwhelming majority of them do. However, they're only required to ride an American motorcycle. So, Excelsior-Henderson, Victory, Indian, etc. I still find it funny that the major players for mass produced motorcycles in the US (i.e. US companies) are all from the north. HD is in Wisconsin. Indian was based in Massachusets, now MN. Excelsior Henderson started in MN and then went to Chicago. And, of course, Victory here in MN as well.

The H-D guys on the facebook page say that Sonny Barger only rides a Victory because Arlen gave it to him. :ltr:
If memory serve me well at all....
Somewhere i saw a video interview with Arlen and in it he said Sonny came to him and asked for a custom built Victory, and that they had been long time friends.

Now i need to try and find that link to make sure.

If you read sonny's book you will find out he does not like the motor company at all.

It's just about money$$$ if HD isn't paying for a little free ad time why not see if Victory would like seeing there bikes in a TV show.. Maybe Triumph wants a little of that hmmm ..
