    Yup. I enjoy Apple and Google products but I don’t like the companies themselves.

    Polarass upper management made a series of stupid decisions sucking the profitability out of Vic then shut it down after getting Indian, Slingshot, and the failed electric bike up and running. Vic is the finest motorcycle I've owned and will continue to enjoy riding them.
    And that's all I got to say about that.

    2015 Victory Hammer 8 ball
    I just bought this hammer 8 ball. 2015 with only 3300 miles. I went 1000 miles to get it. I considered a breakout, a new fat boy, the new chief, a 2013 and a 2014 cvo road king. I really like the big tire look. I have a 2016 RGU, a 2016 Scout 60, a honda sportbike and a yamaha sportbike.

    I dont mind taking a road trip especially if there is a bike at the end of it. All these bikes are a compromise, good at what they do but dont do everything well.

    The hammer is still badass. I thought about how much longer can I get parts? But that didn't stop me from buying it. Every bike I own is great at what they do and fun.

    I use my RGU on trips and my wife prefers riding with me on it. I bought the hammer for me to ride locally and the 50-60 mile loops I do thru the countryside nearby. Its a great bike and I look forward to riding it.

    Nice ride.......You'll love it. Love it more with a different seat but sounds like you got enough different rides to give your butt a break. Welcome and enjoy.

    Beautiful bike,

    1. Is that a dunflop on the rear ? Trow it in the rubbish bin, check production dates on both tires, after 5 years trow them in the bin

    2. Your belt is tracking on the right side of the pulley, it has to be on the left side or center of the rear pulley

    3. Check your clutch free play, when your riding you need 1 or 3 millimeter wiggle on your clutch lever, then your good to go

    @jandjp Awesome pics, you wouldn’t happen to know where the guy closest in last pic got his trunk rack from or if it’s an HD rack do you? I was lucky to see a few vics in the wild too

    Hello, Did you get that bike in Monroe Michigan? If so did you see that V92C they have in the showroom? I am waiting for the price to come down on that one. I may get it as a collectors item.

    @senecagreen, that is a badass looking bike! The Hammer looks amazing. That belt is definitely scary though. :eek-50:
