  1. Here's a postcard I found, dated 1964, from Victory Drive in Craig, Colorado. This was part of US Highway 40, our Victory Highway.
  2. Anyone else fill in the missing years?
  3. Anyone remember which year this was? I am sure there must be some good stories about how you guys n gals got this photo achieved too. (Sorry the resolution is so low on this pic)
  4. Super - thanks so much Mike, and for that snippet of history too.
  5. Here are the front of these t-shirts - again, thanks to Gene for the photos. Note, the 2015 t-shirt was only printed on the front and was blank on the back - see above. Years, as per above. We'd love to see photos of the t-shirts for the other years.
  6. Thanks to Gene for these pics of various V2V t-shirts he collected over the years. Who can add to this with pics of the other years? Here's 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and last year's historic 20th running of the event - 2019.
  7. Here's a Club historic pic for inspiration! From V2V1.
  8. Awesome - so good to put names to the faces. Thanks Daffy.
  9. Planning is underway for a unique event in Europe in 2020, so whilst it is not yet set in stone I thought it worth mentioning for any members in Europe or thinking of visiting next year. The idea (made by one of our American members) is an event in Europe based around the 75th anniversary of "Victory in Europe" (VE Day) (8th May, 1945). Uwe, our keen German member, has taken the lead on looking at possibilities. Currently the idea is for a number of start points from different European countries, converging in Berlin for a gathering there, ideally at the Brandenburg Gate which has become something of a symbol of peace in Europe. There is already a busy calendar for Vic enthusiasts in Europe for next year, including an international rally in Austria (9 July), and 31 Jul - 2 Aug the very popular and fantastically well organised "HardBall 5"event in Luxembourg which is organised by our very dedicated Luxembourg Chapter. Uwe, do please correct anything here if necessary, and keep us updated. I know from our emails that you have some real challenges, but it would be a fantastic addition to the European calendar if it happens. The VMC has valued members in Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, France, Portugal, UK, Switzerland, Lithuania, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, Finland, Denmark, the Czech Republic.....and please forgive me if I have missed anyone! (Hey, we need a presence in Austria and the Netherlands!)
  10. More memories for some - here are two pics, one from V2V 2003 and one from V2V 2008. Anyone recognise the characters? Amazing to think the Club ran the V2V for the 20th year in 2019. Awesome guys n gals! (Sorry pics are so small, I have tried to enhance them as best I could - if anyone has any better quality pics they could let me have PLEASE send me a PM.)
  11. Chuck, I've gathered quite a bit of detail on past V2Vs. I could email that over to you if it might help. Let me know.
  12. I for one remain hugely excited about this. We have so much to be proud of, and so much to look forward to. We are THE Victory Motorcycle Club, the Club which has been there from the start, indeed helped with the development of these wonderful machines. Even though I am on the other side of the world, I am proud that we had the 20th running of the V2V, that we have such awesome regional rallies, that we had yet another successful Nats this year, and I am excited to see the historic 20th Anniversary meet discussed now and I can't wait to hear proposals made and plans unfold. The VMC - Where the Ride Never Ends.
  13. until

    Next time, raise a coffee cup for me!
  14. Loving the fact that we have members who are already looking forward to next year’s V2V......now THIS is what this great Club is (should be) about!
  15. Thank goodness....it is refreshing to get away from the other nonsense that's going on and to remember why we exist as a Club in the first place!!!
