For so many people in the Northerly climes, it has been a long and hard few months. Victory Motorcycles gets it. Weeks and weeks of little tweaks and poking around on the old scooter in the garage while the snow falls and the mercury stays low in the thermometer.

On February 28th, Victory is encouraging you to start your bike up and use the last Sunday in February as a day of explosions and burning rubber. Take the opportunity to get your bike warmed up and twist the throttle until that rear tire starts smoking. #NationalBurnoutDay is the hashtag that is being accompanied with this message. I assume that means that they would like you to take photos and video of your smokey burnout and post it to your favorite form of social media.

The winter is always long and dreary when all you want is to have the wind rushing past you on the motorway. Cheers to National Burnout Day and may all of your Sundays be smokey and awesome!

Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell brought the noise to Motorcycle Live, Birmingham, as Victory Motorcycles and partners Rewaco unveiled his new hand built trike.

Victory Motorcycles at rocked the crowds at Motorcycle Live on Saturday 22nd November by unveiling a unique trike commissioned for Motörhead guitar legend Phil Campbell - who’s responsible for delivering some of the dirtiest, sexiest, most fist-pumping riffs and licks in the history of rock.

Victory Motorcycles and Rewaco collaborated with Motörhead’s European sponsor broker Jonas Sveberg, who has managed every step of the build to create Phil’s unique dream ride. A truly one-off machine which delivers the heart and soul of a Victory High-Ball cruiser with its thunderous 106ci (1731cc) Freedom motor and slick 6 speed overdrive transmission.

The High-Ball was adapted to meet Phil’s wishes by leading trike builders Rewaco, in Germany, with the addition of a modified CT1700v custom rear-end. The hydro-pneumatic CTAF chassis combines the advantages of a rigid axle and independent suspension without sacrificing ride comfort. Phil’s trike is dressed in flowing sculpted bodywork with twin high level exhausts and all rolling on chrome 17” laced wheels.

This unique ride really can bring the noise. It features a built-in, top of the line, MG10CF Marshall guitar amp, enabling Phil to bang-out his fat sound by plugging in and chucking out a riff anytime, anywhere – including live at the show, much to delight of his gathered fans!

Seeing his new machine for the first time and plugging in his guitar, Phil Commented “Amazing guys, I can’t wait to get out and ride this baby, I know everyone will want one – but, mine is gonna be the...
