WHAT WOULD YOU GET?
« on: March 02, 2014, 04:25:35 pm »
I got my center stand recall in the mail. So on Sat., I rode to my local dealer to arrange the work. While I was talking to the service guy I asked if my bike was also on the list for the ecu recall. Yes it was. I should have also asked if my bike was on the cylinder head recall. Anyway, it so happened that the dealership also sells the Victory brand and they were having demo rides. I test rode a victory cross country and I must say, I was impressed with the bike. A really plush ride.
So I'm thinking to myself. If I chose to get rid of the trophy, I'd get me a Victory Cross Country. It's a simpler machine. Probably less problems. And it's a pretty nice ride. Maybe as complex as the current euro sports tourers with all the bells and whistles, maybe they just don't have the capability to make such a complex machine reliable.
So I'm asking.  If you got rid of the Trophy,  what would you get?

My last bike was a Victory Vegas and it was great. I was in two minds wether to keep it. But I am glad I got the Trophy and it ticks everybox. So I see no reason to change now

But I do hold Victory high on the stakes.

I totally agree Coconut... I have test ridden most of the opposition RT1200, K1600, FJR, Kwak 1400GTR and quite frankly I am TOTALLY happy I have made the right choice....

Likewise.  I have ridden ST1300, GTR1400 and nothing compares.  Perhaps when the arthritis kicks in may be a cruiser......
No such thing as bad weather - just inappropriate clothing.

Well I have already done this as you all know. I went back to the CB1300 (not available in the US) as I had had one previously and knew it inside out. It is also bullet proof.

That said, it does not meet the Trophy's weather protection, but has less to go wrong.

I would not consider another tourer excepting perhaps an FJR.

If I had to get rid and only IF, I would go for the new Triumph Speedmaster or the Thunderbird
