Available on tap at the Victory Hotel next time you're passing through.

ha ha :ltr:

GOOD tread this is..... I never seen a Victory Hotel YET but keep my eyes open ....

I love your handle bars.... I was thinking to go for the 2" bars

http://www.burleighbars.com.au/bars/2inch/custom_2inchRollerBars_Victory.html

but they are just below $ 1000 AUD and that is quite a lot.....
I just googled Victory Hotel and there's quite a few, just on the first page that came up there's one in Brisbane, Adelaide, and Gympie.
Ill try and get pix of my Victory outside the ones in my state and post them up.
The Burleigh Bars, yes they aren't cheap that's for sure, but they are the Best, and I think the best bike deserves the best bars money can buy.
Personally I prefer the 1 3/4" like on mine as they match the rest of the front end, a bloke I know with a bike exactly the same as yours just had a set fitted, they look Ace!....I'll get you a couple of pix during the week and maybe if I have a word with the Boss over there I can get you a bit of a discount.

Just googled ""VICTORY HOTEL INDONESIA""

And there are MANY also hahahah :ltr: sooo funny, something brewing in my head now......


I just measured the tubes and they are 1.75 " so yes it should look cool ?? Still I like 2 " maybe looks more aggressive, my swept exhaust is 2" also hahahah but the risers should be 1,75 " as the triple tree holes are NOT 2" & how about any brackets if needed to "bolt" / "attach" anything on the bars in the future ??

I like to be hunched forward. but with the Jackpot now I already changed upright the stock bars and still leaning backwards, so I feel my position would be more comfortable hunched forward....

maybe next year I will buy this 1,75 ' or 2 " and send the guy a picture of desired riding position .... maybe drag bars are best for me as I am 193 Cm tall

YES PICTURES would be cool ps with the guy sitting on the bike so we can see his riding position....

OK here's a pic of Jay sitting on his Jackpot, by coincidence he too is 6 foot 4 inches tall, he said he likes the position of his "Roller Bars" which are the same as mine and stock cables still reach.
Now as you say you like to "hunch forward", and I mentioned this to Dave , the owner of Burleigh Bars he suggested "Knuckle Bars" or "Drag Bars" but neither of those come in 2 inch, just 1 3/4" as I understand it .Something about the 2 inch '304 stainless' not taking the required bends for the "knuckle".
As usual they were all very busy there, but I did manage to show Dave this thread, and asked about a discount for you and any other forum members who desire "Burleigh Bars" .
He thought about it for a second, then said,
"Tell 'em $100 Aust. off a set of BURLEIGH BARS for anyone on the Victory Forum!"
So there ya go!

Yeah its a great discount, I was a bit hesitant to even ask about across the board for all Victory Forum members and thought Dave would maybe go $50, but $100 off is unreal!
Ill ask Crossroads about a permanent sticky post.
Daves also interested in the HID headlight after seeing mine.
Hes the reason I first heard of Victory motorcycles hes been riding them for years.

the 'Tweed Heads Poker Run' had a stop at the Victory Hotel a couple of weeks ago, I rode in it on my Vegas,
the only Victory on the Poker Run along with about 99 Harleys, coupla Trumpys, a Valkyrie, coupla Jappas,
Great run and a heavy band playing at the Hotel called "Fat Albert"
a trio of local kids playing everything from Creedence to AC/DC !!!
Went right off!
Here's a few pix...spot my Vegas!
