Hi all, I just picked up my New (hardly used) Judge yesterday. I got an amazing deal from some poor fellow who was in a tight spot and HAD to sell this bike after setting it up with the pipes and parts for stage 1 and only drove it 1,000 miles. Barely broken in. I wasn't sure about the orange oops I mean Nuclear Sunset paint but it is growing on me.

I was looking for a Fat Bob, I have been a Harley guy for ... a long time and owned a Softail and a Sportster. (still have the Sportie). I read a review about "Fat Bob vs. Victory Judge" and the Judge came out looking quite good. I've been aware of Victory of course, but never given it much serious thought.

I visited my Harley dealer to check out a used Fat Bob listed online, which was of course at their "sister" dealership, which for a mere $300 deposit they would bring here. I said why don'r I just drive over there myself? He didn't like that idea. Next he tries to up the ante by showing me brand new ... which I already told him was not in my budget. He shows me another new dyna $1,000 less. I said "what about budget don't you understand? besides, I don't want the dyna custom I want a Fat Bob." I went to the second dealership a couple days later, and the one I was interested in was gone. The salesman acted bored and pretty much brushed me off when I told him I wasn't going to buy a new bike, I could afford the '09 FXDF used, but not a new $15,000 bike.

I saw the ad for the Judge and read some more reviews. Went to look at it. The X-Bow exhaust looked awesome. All the Black with the orange looked just like I like. It sounded quieter (of course) than my Sportie, but nice and throaty on acceleration. The ride is smooth, the balance is perfect. But a big factor was the salesman, not pushy, enthusiastic about the bike, knowledgeable about his product. He also negotiated generously (for a salesman anyways) SOLD!!


Now I've put about a hundred fifty miles on it and know what I need to do. The bar is pretty much of a reach for me, and I don't want to extend wires and buy longer cables and I think there is enough to move the bar 2" closer with these:
What do you think?

anyways, keep the rubber side down, ride free.

Thanks BB, I love stories about people converting to things and ways that are better than what they have known for years. Welcome to the Victory side. Now you can find your bike in a crowded parking lot. I can empathize, I am also a convert and lovin' it.
