Daytona Bike Week is coming, and you can bet you’ll see a lot of outstanding Victory customs around town, at Victory Custom Row
and at the Victory Ride and Victory Reception
Turn the clock back to last spring. One of the coolest things we saw at Daytona Bike Week 2012 was the audio system Virginia Victory rider Curtis Holloway had in his Victory Vision 8-Ball. Curtis worked with the staff at Kyle Buckner Designs in Danville, Virginia, to install the incredibly powerful audio system in a bike that didn’t originally have audio and didn’t have a trunk, so it had no rear speakers.
Curtis installed the system’s rear speakers and powerful amp in the bike’s side storage compartments, and the covers of those compartments were cleanly drilled to allow the sound to flow out.
When we saw the system at Bike Week a year ago, Curtis was awaiting mesh inserts that would provide weatherproof protection for the speaker openings in the covers.
He used his iPhone and its music playlists as the audio source. The phone sat in a beautifully integrated docking station on the bridge that extends between the seat and the instrumentation, so the phone was secure and close at hand. The bike had no stock audio controls, so Curtis added a convenient volume control knob on the left side of the bike, within easy reach by the seat.
The bike also had a Ness custom 21” front wheel, and we’re eager to see Curtis and his bike again this year to see if he has customized it further.
