Victory Riders Network

The online community for riders & enthusiasts of Victory Motorcycles

So you purchased a Victory, hmmm did you make the right purchase? Did you get the model you went into the store to buy? Do you love your bike? Are you having a great time with your bike?

I have had my hammer for a few years now and I couldn't be happier with my model and my purchase.  I couldn't be happier with the service I get in store. Scotty, Grant, Jamie, Mel and all the tech staff always give me the thumbs up of welcome when in the store.

But I didn't buy the bike so I could get a coffee, even though it is nice to be offered one every now and then.

My work restricts my time in the saddle, but when I get the opportunity I love getting out to ride. I have met some great people along the journey and that's what Victory introduced us too. The journey is important, the  different Victory model bikes, owners and their partners. what a fantastic group Victory motorcycles introduced us into.

When all the current crap disappears the fact that we all ride a quality machine, eye catcher's and stand out machine with people we know have similar ideals in motorcycles is what it is about.

As owners we cannot speak too highly of our machines, even with the negativity of the site. The bikes still are top of the tree. The people we meet and greet, top of the tree.

If you can't get a big cheezy grin when your on your Victory, if you can't give a positive spin on your victory ride, if you can't give a positive spin on the fun you have had on the rides. Best you sell your victory and buy a scoota.

Tell us all why you purchased your Victory, what's so special about it, whats your story, I love my Victory and as we continue to grow as a group and spice up our machines, the heads just keep turning. I am truly thankful for the opportunity to ride a quality machine and meet people who I consider are the top of the tree.

Now I have a little different story about the Dunlops on my Vision, I like the way they handle on dry roads, great feel/feedback in cornering & all other aspects, 90% of our riding is two up fully loaded as well, yes I agree they are ordinary to poor in the wet "but so am I" LOL so ride accordingly to the conditions knowing what I can expect from the Dunlops. On replacing my Vision Tours Tyre's "I get about 9000k out of a set" I put a lot of thought/research into changing the brand 'but' I've got so used to the way the Vision handles on the origional Dunlop Tyre's, including many miles of fairly hard ridding, I was reluctant to change from Dunlops that I've got so comfortable with, I guess if I had the opertunitys to do a few miles on another brand prior to a big Ride and dial in so to speak I may change in the future but again I'm pretty happy with the Dunlops at this stage.

Just had a set of Avon Cobras fitted to my Jackpot, and right from the moment I rode out of the shop I knew they were completely different to the stock Dunlops, these tyres actually let me lean the bike into corners and I didn't have to steer it through them. On the weekend I came down into a fast left hander and discovered halfway through it, that there was water on the road and the whole apex of the corner was wet, with the Dunlop it would have meant panic stations but the Avons just swept through the wet road as if it was dry. I find the ride a lot more positive and am even more happy with the bike now, as I didn't think it was possible to be more happy than I was. Avons are a dearer tyre but the difference in the ride is worth every cent.


Wayne thanks for this info. Seems the Avon Cobras are very much favoured from my research.

What I like about them is that with the wide 250 Dunlop tyre the base of the tyre is markedly flat, but with the Avon, it has a much more rounded profile and enables the tyre to have a much more useable surface on the road.

Nice Looking Jackpot !

My story starts in 2005.  I had never rode a motorcycle, so I was looking for an American icon HD Heritage Softail.  While working at the firehouse where I am a volunteer, a fellow firefighter pulled on a bike I had never seen before.  After talking to him a bit, I found out it was a 2002 V92 Cruiser Deluxe.  I also found out it was for sale.  All the Harleys I had been looking at were in the early 90's with a lot of miles.  This bike was in my budget and only had 2400 miles on it.  Needless to say, I purchased the bike.  I am so happy that I ended up with the Victory. Today, I have over 40200 miles on it.  I have been in every state on the east coast of the US, and met many fellow Victory riders. I also have many friends I have never met face to face on a web site called Victory Riders Network.  It's amazing how a motorcycle brand can bring so many people together from so many different countries, and life styles.  We may all have different views of the world, but we are all still family, a Victory family.


Well said Rick, and its great to read your story and be welcome in your family

Cheers mate

I bought a Harley sportster. Kept it for just 12 months only then traded it on a Victory. The bike I should have purchased in the first place. Handles better, much smoother ride and, I can see in the rear view mirrors at any speed.

And of course the power and good looks are awesome as well.

Good to hear your happy with the Judge Steve, all good reports to date, and yes they do look and perform fantastic.

Enjoy your ride



Ju,st finished watching the DVD "Why We Ride" what a fantastic documentary, the enjoyment, emotion history and raw pride of riding bikes. The stories of how and why people ride, from the young to the ageless (Sorry Trevor) the stories are endless but entertaining. I have ordered additional copies of which will be up for grabs later this month. Keep watching the VRN for the details on how to get a copy.


Stay up right


The Cat and The Bat, back on the road, coming to a city near you!

Noice !
