All the Victory dealers in my area allow test rides, and there's one local Yamaha dealer that will allow you to test ride any of their used vehicles. Most of the others won't, though.

A room for the night too!
That is a peach of an offer.

I wonder what assurances they require that you are a serious buyer?

Anyway; I have been on the XCT and the Vision Tour.
I really like the Hammer and the Highball; but I think they would be nice "around town" bikes.
For an out of town weekender; I would take the Vision.
I know; George Jetson, blah blah blah.

But, that is one sweet handling bike.

I was looking at a Hammer from a private owner , he let me take it out, nice bike. I was really considering it but that fat back tire was more work than I wanted to do on curves. I liked the Vegas 8 Ball I took out on there test ride event. I have a couple riding buddies that have the Cross Country's one is a convert from a HD Road King.

That 106 does get with it and I believe the reason Harley went to the 103. Engine tech wise Victorys is up to date vs HD but that HD will hold it's value much better ?
