I've test ridden Victory bikes and Indians... and after I got off of both from factory test rides, I realized real quick that I still liked my old R* better.
Sure, they had better rides and better brakes and all that, but they felt rather "soul-less". They were TOO good. They didn't shake enough and make enough noise. They were too big, and too heavy for my tastes.
In short, they were TOO much like transportation APPLIANCES, and not enough like a rugged, old school, rumblin' motorcycle should be. But, hey, that's just me... I'll keep my Road Stars; run 'em, service 'em, and repair 'em 'til I can't ride anymore!
