I did manage to rack up a meager 594 miles, which at least gave me more insight into the King's character. First of all, this bad boy's fast, and our Sunday morning ride includes some pretty quick guys on swift motorcycles. One of them mentioned that it took a good twist of his sportbike throttle to keep up with the Victory, especially out of the gate. Of course, in the corners it's a different story: It's slow to turn, a result of the long wheelbase, and it tends to move around at high speed, although I suspect the majority of that is caused by the trunk and windshield. It's not that the Victory handles badly, it just handles differently than I'd expected it to.
