Staff Blog: Pushing the limit

When I picked the Victory Judge up from Victory UK I remember Victory UK's PR man telling me I'd want to start looking for a petrol station pretty sharpish after 120 miles. He also said if the petrol light comes on then I'd seriously be in trouble. With this information lodged firmly in my head I tend to start looking for a...

you need to get a van (or take a plastic jerry can) to follow you one day you're not too busy to test exactly how far it'll go and when that light will come on...

Judged and condemned

Having seen these bikes in reality the only one i can hand on heart say looks decent is the HAMMER S.:unsure:

Mcn LiamM:  The Victory Judge may be a comfortable bike, but i wonder why you chose it as a L.T.T machine? Seems a mystery, but.......Each unto their own. Better than walking though, i guess.:blink:

range?

Liam am I alone in being fed up with new bikes that have a fuel light on within a 100 miles, I know many still have 30 or 40 left in them, but who wants to take the chance on whether or not you will find a garage or not. Is it about weight ( as an extra 5 litres =5kgs) or are engines getting bigger and there is no space over the airbox? or are the manufactures somehow  thinking that will notice the cost of 20 litres is 30 quid and some people put that in their car? cant you journalists start telling manufactures we want to ride not spend out time in forecourts!

MCN LiamM....... Yes, you're right, i guess horses for courses m8,

Victory. I thought, after Agamemnon, it was Nelson's flagship?

Plummer: No, I don't think you're alone, but I don't think many bikes' fuel lights come on before 100 miles. Going from the bikes I've ridden the average tank range seems to be about 150, with some bigger tanked bikes pushing 300 miles.

 

Stressed: Something we agrre on! The Hammer S is a really good looking bike and just as much fun to ride.

My Harley FatBoy will do between 42 and 60 mpg and that gives me up to 250miles per tank.
