Unloading: Bikes

The HFL guys were (justifiably) tearing shreds into the Victory Core for it's claims to be a "performance cruiser" despite it's lack of rear suspension, and the boasts about break-through technology which is in fact centuries old. The criticisms are certainly justified, but it's a factory concept: it's primary function is to create noise in the press and the public and it's doing that quite well. Plus I happen to think it looks pretty good (if not performance orientated or ground-breaking).
