    I saw an 05 chopper last week for $7k sold the next day, called a dealer about a Victory Kingpin Thursday morning around 10-10:30, sold by 1pm. Weather is nice, bike week is around the corner, bikes are selling like hot cakes. Maybe I'll go see the "cough, cough" HD dealer.

    It was the first time I looked at a victory and the price was right. I looked around some more and sure enough looks like some people are jumping of the wagon.

    Some people just don't have the balls. Not sure what they are worried about Victory is still making parts and dealers will fix em.

    Well, I would think they worry future value. Victory supports parts for 10 years, what then? It is sad, I kind of liked that Magnum something. Their "Street Glide model"... For a tall guy it has much more room in the cockpit than Harley

    If your worried about the value of your motorcycle in 10 years your doing it wrong.

    I agree Eric, and if the right deal comes around I may pull the trigger. Love my Pit even though it needs work, a softail bike would be nice for longer trips and a BD bagger is out of reach right now.

    Yes, but one has to understand that the value will drop way faster than of HD or even Big Dog. In 5 years time if you trade the bike there may not be many buyers around... If you know and accept that you most likely can make a great deal now. You can't compare BD, it uses s&S and rest of the parts can be replaced with custom parts... Not so much with Victory

    That being said, like I turn 60 and have only so many riding years left... Would I get one and not even plan to ever sell it... if I still can ride in 9 years, I could fix the bike and ride the rest of my riding days with it.
