Jarland prepare for the rush of demo riders at the Victory Truck in

8/8/2010 5:25:00 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time Early morning in Vanocker Canyon: Got out early before most
of the bikers and took leisurely ride (50+ mph) through one of the
canyons near Sturgis. The roads are well maintained and offer great

Chris Calaprice of Road 2 A Cure riding to all 50 states to raise
money to fight pancreatic cancer. Chris was diagnosed with the
cancer 6 years ago. He and his wife have dedicated themselves to
raising money and awareness of this cancer. He needs your support.
If every biker donated just $5 each, it would help their cause
immensely. Please visit his website at http://www.road2ACure.org
8/7/2010 6:29:45 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time Sturgis Hospitality :Imagine my wonderment when this
innocent young woman held up this sign (the sign says free beer)
yet she doesn't even have enough money to afford clothes. What a
great town! She also had group of friends in the same situation
that would wash your bike at the same time you were drinking her
beer. They wanted $30 for 'sick aunt's surgery'.
8/7/2010 5:53:48 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time 2011 106/6 Kingpin :Notice the new accessory Cobra pipe.
Because the transmission is now quieter, Victory can open up their
pipes on cruiser models and still comply with SAE sound
regulations. The Cobra pipe sounds awesome without being obnoxious.
And the bike is FAST!!!!

Just outside Gateway CO.
8/7/2010 5:40:17 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time
Lead by Victory's Robert Pandya, we took dirt roads through the
mountains, tossing the bikes into the curves as if on a motocross
8/6/2010 10:04:40 P.M. Pacific Daylight
Spent today riding from Gateway CO to Ft Collins by way if Glenwood
Springs and over the Rockies via Estes Park. Swapped my white
CrossCountry for Crossroads. The Crossroads' bags were specifically
modified for this trip. Victory engineers made them into styrofoam
lined coolers for keeping beverages cold...in this case water. Each
sidebar holds at least a dozen water bottles plus a bag of ice and
even has a drain plug.
Nine bikes made the trip,some taking the direct route over the
interstates, others like myself took the scenic route over the
mountains. There was thrilling riding taking many of the twists at
60+ mph and required full concentration.. All tolled, we put on
about 450 miles today. We've landed in Ft Collins forth night and
will ride on to Sturgis tomorrow. Spirits are high and the bikes
are performing brilliantly.
