    Still looks like you are trying to make this a political thread. Don't you have any other place to spew that crap? Intolerance is forcing your views on others who may have different views. Keep spreading your hate and you will get this thread shut down. Just like the others.

    No new iPhone for me, used my stupid free money for GUNS, AMMO and ALCOHOL, LMAO. Eventually the free money, which isn't really free, is going to run out and people who are depending on it will come to realize, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

    I know this is “the demise of motorcycles” thread but the whole covid thing created higher sales of everything, boats, bikes, cars, trucks, houses, I mean literally everything is selling like ice in hell, am pretty sure I saw our towns homeless guy driving a new 3/4 ton crew cab 4wd diesel denali trim truck the other day, maybe not, it was dark, I was half drunk & had poked myself in the eye but he did get a new “cabin” tent & some new shoes “jordans” I think, point is low income people can not say their being held back due to lack of jobs because almost every single company is hiring & anyone who wants to work, can work. I was never much of a current events kinda guy but since covid made life a lil better I started listening a lot more. We went to 11 different states during 2020, all for leisure except two round trips to TVS in Iowa, those were for my mental health. Is great time to sell stuff as full blown retail is the going rate, we’re enjoying this up cycle, use ur money wisely & watch it grow like a mofo, get out and ride today

    The install of lloyds 505’s, air filter, the Maximus was installed & bike was dyno tuned by Rylan. Was an absolute pleasure meeting the gang @ TVS, great people that staked their lives behind Victory and now Indian, Gabe & Nick have since moved on to other things & Rylan moved from that big shop just off the 4 lane in Adel ( I had visited ) to a new shop he built beside his house. I’m thrilled to have had them do my bike and see a guru’s shop in person, twice ( drop off & pick up ) Victory had / has lots of great, dedicated people from independent shops & bike owners to remind Polaranus for many, many, many years they built a great product that’s reliable, quick & sexy as hell
