I moved off my 2012 Victory Cross Roads and onto my TTSE in 2014 for reasons not associated with the demise of Victory.  It was a couple years before Polaris decided to abandon a fine motorcycle brand (and thousands of loyal owners) for the profits associated with the Indian name.  I guess it worked for them.  But I know a few current and past Victory owners who absolutely refuse to go Indian. Can't say I blame them, tho.

Imagine how I felt when I bought a brand new, last of the line , Triumph Daytona 1200, in 1998, only to find that the discontinued all accessories at pretty much the same time that they sold me the bike (just as they were finishing production at Hinckley).

Never did manage to fit a rack as a result  :010:
