Victory 2009 Hammer

Victory Hammer S Anyone ever rode one?? I have a friend that loves anything made by Victory, drives his every day. Just got me looking and wondered if a person could actually turn this almost 700 lbs beast around in a 12 acre field? I love to know cause i think this one looks pretty darned nice for what it is!! But i drive a Big Mexican Woman

I havent ridden the Hammer, I have ridden the Jackpot. Very cool bike but as much as I like cruisers I dont really care for the Wide tire handling (200+) I think both the Jackpot and the hammer come with the 240 rear. The jackpot really wanted to stand back up going around corners. But then maybe I am just used to the skinny tires on my FXR.

I think the hammer is a 250 rear and has a 18 x 8.5 wheel, that wider than most non sport car wheels

According to Cycle World they say it handles quite good for what it is.

Personally I really like it. It's just out of my price range.

Not much of a blue person but I like the way the lines on the bike flow and the way the engine looks inside the frame...pretty sweet

Big Iron is any bike I'd wrench my back picking up: Over 500lb.

I like it! Actually Victory is number 1 on my list when I get another cruiser someday.

I didnt mean my post to be negative to Victory's in general. I really like them actually, The Hammer may handle better than the jackpot, I just didnt care for the super wide tires reluctance to hold a line. I I was getting one I would get the kingpin, inverted fork and I believe a 180 tire in back.

That's about the coolest V-Twin cruiser out there if you ask me.

I'd like it and would really like to HAMMER DOWN on one but at that price I'd have to win the Powerball first.
It is very cool!
