Mike Valle
Mesa, AZ
'04 Victory TC With A 2005 Motorvation Spyder Rig
Mike works as both a philosophy professor and a mechanic. He put this sharp rig together himself at Victory of Mesa. The Motorvation Spyder's traditional lines are a great match for the classic good looks of the Victory TC. With over 28 thousand miles on the clock he has obviously put his machine's touring capability to good use.
Richard Von Luft
Placentia, CA
'06 Yamaha Road Star Silverado
Richard's spotless Road Star Silverado has been his trusty companion while exploring the back roads of California. His clean machine came loaded up with all the goodies that make touring easy but he has outfitted his Road Star with passing lamps and engine guards. With the addition of Tourmaster sissy-bar luggage on the back, this trip to Death Valley was a breeze.
Chuck Lopez
Tri Cities, WA
'08 Black Victory Vision Tour Premium
Chuck has gone full bore with his Vision. Taking an already top of the line touring bike and having fun with it has been his goal. It's loaded up with lots of extras; he added an LED light kit, the stage 1 level 1 exhaust upgrade with a remap and new intake, Garmin Zumo 550 GPS system, black Arlen Ness dash/bezel and an iPod upgrade for music on those long trips. The whole bike is set off with a ton of chrome upgrades with more still to come. Of course, once those upgrades are done it will take Chuck even longer to field all those questions about his Victory.
