    The kid could teach grandpa a thing or two, and it sounds Ike Victory agrees.

    Well, I hope the kid does good. Vic’s could use some new flesh and bones.

    “Well, I hope the kid does good. Vic’s could use some new flesh and bones.”

    Yeah like those fresh ideas that come have been coming out of Harley-Davidson…

    I remember when he was a kid on BBO. The Ness family seems to know how to mix family and business and raise respectful children unlike another family we all know. 🙂

    I want to see the bike! Hope he can knock it out of the box. L&R

    Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey to you, maggot.

    I only hope that this “Ness” can build a scooter that someone over four-foot thirteen inches can ride. Those ness boys seem to be a bit vertically challanged, and design their motorcycles with the short-legged rider in mind. I can’t wait to see it. Here’s hoping it’s a new bike and not a custom of an existing model.

  8. 8 Brandon Jan 12th, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    I understand it’s just a one-off custom from an existing Victory model.

  9. 9 Jim Jan 12th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    $100 says it will be just another Vegas with gay-ass graphics like all the other “Ness” badged Vic’s.

  10. 10 Seymour Jan 12th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Oh brother….

  11. 11 Sollis Jan 12th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Jim i say its not gonna be another Vegas with gay-ass graphics like all the other “Ness” badged Vic’s , and i want that 100 bucks by January 22

  12. 12 Captain John T. Awesome Jan 13th, 2012 at 12:11 am

    When is Victory gonna smarten up and ditch the Ness boys? So much ugliness has been perpetrated on some perfectly good motorcycles by these people and it must end.lol

    Victory makes a good machine…………………………they have no………………….soul…….

  14. 14 BobS Jan 13th, 2012 at 8:37 am

    No machine has a soul, only people do. Victory does make a great bike and as mentioned earlier, I find Zach’s decorating much more appealing than Arlen’s. And while I know all the Ness’ do make some nice stuff, with regards to Victory they are just decorators putting graphics and shiny parts on Vic’s designs.
    On Jan. 20 Victory is unveiling a “new” model. On Jan. 21 they are going to unveil Zach’s one off of the new model. Much like they did with Klock Works last month.

  15. 15 Brett Jan 13th, 2012 at 9:02 am

    Victory may make the best bike in the known world, but their service & ability to repair their bikes & have part readily available is about as bad as it gets…..guess that’s why you should stay away from bikes made by an ATV company. I have little hope for what Polaris can do with Indian. If Victory was a stand alone company, they would be looking like Big Dog right now.

  16. 16 BobS Jan 13th, 2012 at 9:11 am

    Sorry Brett, but as a rider and a stockholder I know otherwise. Of course a smaller company doesn’t have the parts, accessories, or the dealer network of the big H’s, but Victory is operated as a stand alone and is generating a net profit. So even if Victory was not owned by another company, they would still look like a rising star, not Big Dog. And I’m not just a cheerleader, I have complaints too. But as a stockholder I weigh the good and the bad.

    Soul is HD marketing. A marketing plan copied w/ success by ducati under the term “passione”

    Just like when I get marketing kaka from HD every month about new stuff for my bike to get my “independence”

    Let’s see: Victory builds air/oil cooled V-twin cruisers and touring bikes. Those are the largest segment of motorcycle purchases. Victory’s are superior to Harley’s in power, torque, reliability, ride, handling, braking, stability, maintenance, and any other category. AND, Victory’s are built in Iowa, with 20% MORE American-made components. I like Chevy’s, but that doesn’t mean I hate Mopar…. Just cause you love your Harley, it doesn’t somehow require you to Hate on Victory. Competion makes everything better for us buyers. And why hate on the leged, Arlen Ness? Of course his designs are flashy. That’s the era he came from. He’s THE pioneer of custom bike building. Love him for what he is: the OG of custom bikes. You don’t have to like flashy paint or bike accessories, but ya don’t have to hate on the MAN. -Oh and He and Cory don’t just customize for Victory. They have worked on the designs of every bike Victory has produced since the Vegas.

    Can’t stand people talking sh-t on the internet. c’mon people, can’t we all just get along? LOL!

    please be flat black with red and white pin stripes

    I’ve got high hopes for this bike. Victory seem to be doing all the things that Harley should be doing.

  21. 21 Robert Pandya Jan 14th, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    With a little insiders knowledge on this project – I can say it will not be for the inseam challenged. The Victory team will be filming the final build-up of this bike all this week before the reveal of the bike on Saturday – and Gunny WILL be there to pull the sheet off. No sheet.

    Working with the Nesses on various projects has been great for the Victory brand. And while we wish we could publish the names of a surprising number (and variety) of builders who ask us to sponsor them on projects every year, we can’t. There is a great deal of passion for the engineering and the ride quality of our machines within the company and Victory and Polaris know that we don’t build machines for every rider. Nobody does. We build machines we like to ride and as more people try them out, more riders discover where we are coming from. How the rider feels looking at and on the motorcycle is the source of the “soul” of a bike – not the metal and rubber.

    If you feel good – ride it.

    If not – ride something you DO like.

    “We build machines we like to ride…” That is why I bought stock. PII has performed almost as well as my bike!

  23. 23 viz Jan 15th, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    They need to call it no balls since they dont have the balls to do anything different

  24. 24 Blackmax Jan 16th, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    I’m in agreement with vtwinrider, if you don;t like it, don’t ride/but it !! It’s a simple equation! But even if it’s not your cup of tea, you don;t have to go and “bad mouth it or everything they try to do.
    I’ve talked to Zach a couple of times, about getting a hold of a Victory (especially the High Ball).
    So I’m looking forward to this effort. I’m not a fan of everything they’ve done with Victory ( I’m not a big fan of either version of the Vision nor of even the Cross Country Tour) but I’m willing to bet that Zach hits this one out of the park! (Notwithstanding the Gunny)
    Again I know what my next “Bagger” bike is going to be, make mine a Victory !!!!!

  25. 25 Deano Jan 21st, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Judge this one yourself. A bike should be personal. My first Victory was black with some nice Ness additions. If you didn’t like it, I didn’t care. But it did make kids cry (or thepipes did anyway). My second Victory is a flagship Vision. It will be personal when the paint shop have finished. Oh meant to say, my wife rides a HD.
