How do you carve a career out for yourself in the motorcycle industry when your name is Zach Ness and your iconic grand father is Arlen Ness and your dad is Cory Ness?  You do something that no one else in the family has done!

The young man did really good - this bike is truly the BEST looking Victory I have ever seen and could easily be put into production to compete with the XR1200 from H-D.

What do you think? Should Victory put these into production?

I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts on this!
