    Harley has sold unrefined crap for years based solely in heritage and name. They may have evolved some, but still in all, they sell in spite of them selves.

    Good to know the prophets of doom are wrong, especially since I am getting ready to purchase a CCT!

    Victory is not going anywhere (unless, of course, Polaris changes its mind!)

    Only if you consider weekly regular. Always a lot of gloom and doomers.

    Could not agree with you more. There are a lot of people that like the bikes, a little effort would do some good. Some asses do need a pink slip, there are a lot of people who would be more than happy to have a Victory bike instead of a Harley or Indian!

    Get the CCT, it is a great bike. The CCT has just as much. Okay, so it doesn't have the power windshield, saddlebag lock deal and keyless start. Big deal. How many people own cars that have less "bling" but keep and love them forever. The bike performs has power, handles and is comfortable. In the end, do what is best. Either way, enjoy your ride my fellow rider.

    Does it matter if Polaris sells more Victorys? I personally like my Victory, and I especially like it that you don’t see that many on the road. If you run into another person who is riding a Victory, you are most likely going to start up a conversation with that individual. In my opinion, if you see another Victory on the road you share a little comradery with that individual since there are not that many Victorys. I’ll bet that if you are driving down the road and you pass another victory going the same direction, you will most likely give them the thumbs up, or a “V” wave. I’ll even bet that after you pass them and wave you will most likely have a smile on your face.

    Harleys are a dime a dozen and they are less likely to have the same comradery as Victory riders may share. If they pass another Harley rider on the highway, I am sure they will wave, but I doubt they will have that same smile.

    Agreed! Who gives a big flying flip how many bikes Vic sells? I love mine, and that's what matters to me.

    Mark4Jesus don't panic interent forums are full of negativity because the people that don't have a complaint our out enjoying there fine Victory. If you look at who is doing most of the negative posting it's the same few people. Not that they don't have some valid points and there isn't a product out there that couldn't benifit from some improvement. For the most part I think most people are satisfied with they're Victory. There have been threads on here stating that they have the highest customer satisfaction rating so they can't be that bad.

    Sadly, yes, for some. Some just aren't happy unless they're complaining and/or finding fault. The sky is NOT falling at Victory Motorcycles. The truth is: Victory will outlast us all and do well for us and for future owners.

    Do they need to make a few changes, and are some of the complaints valid? Yes, most assuredly. And they will make changes going forward.

    Every single motorcycle forum I've ever been on is very similar. I haven't been on an H-D forum for a while and thanks to the link provided regarding this topic, I can see that nothing's changed their either.

    Ride and carry on.

    VISION, BABY!
    That link was awesome!! They had the exact same complaints as I see here.... including the classic "oh, not another death of HD thread!"

    I wonder if the Indian forum has crap like this? Hmmmmm.....
