    As we've learned, there's been at least one situation regarding a duplicate number issue regarding a 2011 Cory Ness Cross Country. This situation was brought to light by pure accident when two VOG Members realized they had the same plate number. In case you haven't read about this, here's a link to that thread:http://www.thevog.net/forum/thread/16530/cory-ness-xc-group-duplicate-limited-edition-badge-issue/

    I'd like to ask all Ness Signature Series Owners (All Ness Models) to take a moment to tell us a bit about your bike as well including a photo of the numbered plate in the post. The information should include:

    1) Year
    2) Model
    3) Color
    4) Signature Series Number
    5) Photo of numbered plate

    Please note, that even if you don't own a Victory Ness Signature Series bike, if you happen to see one around or at a dealership, please take a moment to snap a photo of it and include it on this thread.

    Allow me to add that we don't have to limit this to only the Ness Signature Series bikes, so if you have another Victory LE (Limited Edition) model, please add it to the list.

    Let's hope the duplicate number issue was purely an isolated incident, but if there's other duplicates out there, let's attempt to identify them in a controlled manner.

    If Victory/Polaris follows these threads then they may concider the following:-

    Perhaps it's time Victory/Polaris produced an internal specification for these plates, if only so they make a consistent plate. If this is done, the plates may perhaps all look the same, in future:

    "Plate material, size, thickness/gage, font styles, font sizes, depth of engraving/embossing, print & plate colours, layout of text & logos, specifications for the logo & signatures used and master copies kept."

    This is generally standard practice with most manufacturing companies and should not be very difficult to implement.
    Come on Victory, we all love your bikes, put some love into the manufacturing.

    I'm guessing but the numbers look like they may be added separately from the plate manufacturing. The font shade looks lighter and different from the rest.

    If I may, I am going to comment here from a dealers perspective. I agree with having a thread and guys posting pictures and so on about the number plates. But, I would like to see the banner on the front page of the VOG removed because of one main reason. A new potential Victory buyer comes to the site and is immediatly turned off by a negative on the main page. I love this site and what it has done for Victory, it's dealers , and it's customers. But, on this one, I cry foul. Sorry Andy, just my two cents.
