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 scenery.

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.

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'.

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!!!!

Lead by Victory's Robert Pandya, we took dirt roads through the mountains, tossing the bikes into the curves as if on a motocross track.

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 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.

Track the V2V Relay Live!!!

The 10th Annual V2V Highway Relay: June 21, 2009 to July 4, 2009 This year is the 10th Anniversary of the V2V Victory Highway Relay, a 14 leg cross-country ride celebrating the original Victory Highway. Conceived by Spike Durkin in 2000, the ride has become a major annual event for the Victory Motorcycle Club (VMC). To help support this event and spur more involvement, The Victory Riders Network is sponsoring a special webpage to track the ride in Real-Time! We also have enabled tools for V2V participants themselves to share their journey from New York to San Francisco with readers direct from the ride! A dedicated Victory-Riders group "V2V-X" contains a Map of the relay, a Comment Wall, access to real-time tracking (the ride captains were supplied a special GPS tracking device for this event), as well as options for riders to post comments, photos & video, especially for those with smart-phones or laptops along the route: Follow this historic event live at
