The TCVR Motto Since July 4th, 2000

It is right above.

Rides, Gatherings, Events, Rally's & Friendly BS
This is where we share our passion for our Victory's. Help others with their machines and organize to ride, ride..........ride.

When I first started the TCVR we were infants. All other bikes had groups to go to for camaraderie, but we had no where to find other's that loved their new Victory's. Harley riders had HOG groups us Victory riders needed a place to meet other riders to share tips and resources and to go for rides. Now that we are orphans we have those needs even more. A place to call our own.

When you signed up to register you had to read this.

This site is for the owners of Victory Motorcycles in the Twin Cities Area, to share our passion for our Victory's and help others with their machines and organize to ride, ride..........ride.

Thinking we should have a TCVR 20th anniversary ride/party.

Great idea!

Also this group is great and I've met a lot of great people, friends and family because of this group and the commonalities that tie us together

Hey everyone. It's been a while since I've checked in.

I still have my 2001...while I racked up a lot of miles in those first years, getting married in 2006 and starting a family really changed my riding from literally riding every second I could to rare times each year.

And as I've mentioned in the past, a few other issues really added to the situation--the closing of Warner's (still the most amazing dealer I've ever seen), the decision to end the brand on the part of Polaris, and the loss of some Victory friends over the years. I'm not bitter--life is life, but they all impact you.

We're to a point where I, or my wife and I, can consider taking a ride leaving the boys at home--something that is starting to sound REALLY good with all of the COVID-19 isolation.

So, an anniversary ride might be fun...perhaps to Osceola (like the old days) or to Spirit Lake. And it's pretty clear that we CAN social distance on motorcycles...but we probably can't all go somewhere to eat and visit like we did in the past.

Hi Chris, great to hear from you again! Agree with all of your points above as well.
An anniversary ride is an outstanding idea. I certainly would like to be part of it.
While I REALLY like my Vision, I still also love #434 and still take her out to stretch her legs from time to time.

I wonder if Mies Outland would let us meet in their large parking lot(s) on a Sunday when they are likely closed. Maybe we could arrange to have a food truck on site and maybe someone could load up some beverages on ice in coolers.

Sparky,
Thanks for all you have done. While I might not be able to make your Anniversary ride, I will surely be there in spirit!

To tell the truth I do not think I will be comfortable by July to join a ride. We have been pretty much staying alone or for sure keeping 6 feet of distance. We are in the age bracket that does not seem to survive getting this virus. Suck to be old but it beats the alternative and I choose to ride another day.
