[Triumph Motorcycle club] Re:Social functions now muscle cruisers
- Yep Victory dared to make a V-twin that doesn't sound like a Harley
but sounds good in its own right, unlike some Japanese efforts which
have been described by rag writers with such endearing terms as "a
hippopotamus farting under water."
However if you're willing to give up the Harley sound to get a
cruiser with breathtaking acceleration, anything Victory makes might
as well be badged a Surrender compared to Triumph's muscle cruiser.
