    I think Kuryakyn makes these for Victory but maybe somebody in the know can confirm that or not?

    Lol, that’s a good one. Or how about, “if you can read…you probably ride Victory too.”

    So I bought this bike for 2 up riding (didn’t everyone) and Victory tells us that they will have a fix sometime next spring so hang in there, and thanks for your patience. (Not this guy….and his girl). I am trying to think of how a car company could get away with telling it’s loyal buyers that they can’t use the back seats in the Mini-Van for 6 months but hang in there a fix is coming. I paid more for my bike then i did one of my cars and to be “brushed off” like this is inexcusable in any business. I called 2 dealerships to try to get a more detailed explanation of the failure mode. One never bothered to call me back and the other said they weren’t sure and that Victory hadn’t explained what was meant by the “mounting points”. Can they inspect the so called mounting points take the luggage rack off and allow us to still ride with backrest? No answer? How is the standard “truck pack” mounted? Can they take of the backrest and the luggage rack and replace it with a loaner truck pack? no answer? Again…………….inexcusable!
