    Who doesn't love a good burnout? The Octane wait is almost over.

    I do not like the smell of smoking rubber and I haven't done any of that stupid stuff since I was 19......... So I guess I am the "who" you referring to in your post......

    I think there is going to be a lot of very sad people out there when the OCTANE is released, A small rebadged Scout isn't going to do it for me, regardless of how powerful it is. I dont like riding with my knees behind my ears. Victory really needs to bring out something that will compete with and handle like the Diavel, Superduke, Vmax, and the like. Then they will be in the world of Power Cruisers.....

    I'm personally not going to get rid of my XR unless I can find something much better than it is, and they don't exist currently.
    If Vic ever makes a new really big badass touring machine that makes me go "I need it!" then I might get one if it's not out of my price range.
    Meantime I'm happily dropping coins into this one making it all the harder for them to lure me into another contract.

    Octane is too small for me to ride at 6'3". I was honestly hoping for something that would rival ducati hp. 0-60 in a little under 4 and a 12 second 1/4 mile sounds pretty similar to s Vegas with a stage one on it.
