    Gotta say ... this is absolute BULLSHIT ....

    This is even worse for guys like Rylan at the Vic Shop that just started building an amazing shop dedicated to Victory. For Polairs to axe Vic like this is just downright dispicable ....

    Yeah I'm done with Polaris industries.

    Now I gotta try to get ride of my CC. I'll never get what I owe on it now. I"m sure no one will want it on trade either.

    Thing that gets me, is the brass was telling everyone not to worry and that Vic was going to be just fine and stuff was coming .. and then they just screwed the entire customer / customizer base. What a great way to start the new year ...

    I just spent a lot of money on a Magnum 2 weeks ago. This is a nightmare. What happens to my 3 year delayed start warranty that they "threw in" with the bike? What a fucking punch in the gut. Here I thought I got a good deal, all I got was a good screwing.

    Ride them till they die. Who cares about trying to sell. I have 40k trouble free on mine and expect 40-60 more before looking for a new one. Sucks I wont have Victory to look at but I am sure I'll find something worth riding.....

    I don't see what the big deal is...most people on here aren't buying new bikes...and it opens up a whole new aftermarket to support the bikes. The same thing happened with the two Yamahas I owner, the V-Max and Warrior Both were discontinued...didn't make any difference ...I think there is a lot of over reacting

    I will ride mine until it cannot be fixed which looks like forever. No use in trading for another brand bike.
