Polaris just announced that they are cancelling the Victory and going to concentrate on the Indian.

I wondered if that would happen. Both Victory and Indian are chasing the same market share so it makes sence to avoid competing with yourself.
Still a shame though.

Somehow this reminds me of Custer's Last Stand; Victory eludes the calvary; Indians win.

But, hey, the Indian brand has had a similiar success rate as the Chicago Cubs. So anything can happen.

I might be in the market for another motorcycle next summer, maybe. It wouldn't be an air-cooled V twin though. Maybe another BMW K1100 in decent shape. Might even look at an old Goldwing, I'd love to find another GL1100 Standard. The scooter will stay though.

I saw an Indian the other day, it was beautiful. Most of the Victory's look cheap.

That sure looks a lot like the one I had. Does that one have a windshield, mine did but I can't remember what kind. I can't remember exactly when I sold mine sometime between 2006-2008. Unfortunately I needed the money for another project.
