    Marks original comment about radio stations did not say they were "online biker radio stations." I made an assumption that he was talking about conventional over the airwaves radio stations like 99.9% of people listen to, here in the USA. 

    I clicked on 1 link, Biker Heart Radio and it is a poor quality radio station based in South Africa.

    Harley Liberty is a site devoted to the 2% Like the HA, Mongols, Pagans, Bandidos, etc.

    Are these the places we want to market too? 

    As far as trying to divide the club, that is crazy talk.

     

    How amazing that 99.9% listen to over the airwaves radio stations....that 0.1% seems to still give some of these radio stations thousands of listeners.  And you clearly haven't checked out the full list or REALLY checked out what they are all about.....but then you always know best!  So maybe you can explain what have you done positively to promote the club, even in your local area?  Then the rest of us who are TRYING can learn from your boundless experience and energy.

    Mark, Care to share a link to these online biker radio stations? I have been riding for over 30 years and never heard of such a thing. I polled my riding friends here in So. California and not one had ever heard of one. I would like to check it out.

    Spending 5 minutes a day promoting the VMC to the 27,000+ members of the Victory Motorcycle Owners Group would be priceless and free. Then you have the other pages for the various models.

    The owner of the page is a former president of this club. We have talked many times and there is no problem with promoting the club in that group. 

    This club either evolves or slowly dies. It's that simple. I just don't understand the stance of some closed minded members.

     

    Too busy to write a long list of biker radio stations…I presumed you would know better than me.  Here are just a few off the top of my head, so apologies if I get any names wrong…I am surprised you didn’t know there was even one! 

    Biker Radio

    Biker Classic Rock

    Biker Hart

    Harley Liberty

    Then there are news video stations such as:

    Bikers Inner Circle

    Black Dragon Biker TV

    Insane Throttle

    And there are some others in Europe such as Biker F M in UK….

    and the list goes on!

    Anyhow, there are more but I am too busy these days.

    Don't know about Taiwan, but to do radio in the USA would take 1000x of the Clubs whole years budget. And I don't know what radio stations you would put it on.

    Why did you think I was talking about Taiwan?  I am friends with hosts of two US Online biker radio stations and have written several articles for one of them before. The other offered a live interview spot last year but it wasn’t my place to accept.   Zero budget effect.

    Shouldn't all photo's go to the historian or coordinated thru the V2V chair?

    Thanks - I am picking the photos up from here.  For some reason I can't open the videos.  

    I do think we should have been hitting the motorcycle press and radio stations with announcements - I had suggested it some months ago (in fact I have been nagging about this since last Fall) I drafted a press release in an attempt to ease workload for others, so maybe it was done and I am not aware.  Too late now for the V2V, except for LCs/Regions trying to get something in their local press in the last few days - again, maybe this is already happening.  Not too late for radio stations though.  And not too late for our Anni year in general (almost, but ....). Knowing how far in advance the mainstream magazines work it almost certainly is for them, although they might squeeze a mention in their general news pages.  We should be broadcasting to the world that it is our 20th, about the V2V, the Nats, regional and local events, including overseas - V2E across Europe, the Scotland and New Zealand events, e.g., events all over the world to commemorate our official 20th year.  I believe the Marketing Committee will be reporting at the Board meeting in July, so perhaps we will hear what has been achieved then.

    THAT IS AN AWESOME DESIGN!  I so wish we were taking part but not this year.  We'll be sending good vibes for great weather with no stress for everyone participating!  Looking forward to the pictures!

     

    Yes, I also love the design……wish we had these shirts in the Store to purchase for those of us who cannot join the event, but we could still somehow support it.

  6. Posted before, but here are some of the previous V2V t-shirt designs.  (PLEASE let me have a photo if you have one of any of the missing ones).

    It is fantastic that the Club will be running this for the 21st time this year.  WELL DONE Viv, all the Leg Captains, and all involved.

    UPDATE: Event Site and Registration Link HERE!

    Hi everyone!  I’m Rose, and I am both the President of Sin City Victory Riders, Chapter 17 in Las Vegas, and the Event Chair for the 20th Annual VMC National Meet.  We are very excited and honored to be afforded the opportunity to host this prestigious event, show off our beautiful city and surrounding areas, and show our Victory Family an Epic Time!  

    In an effort to consolidate all questions and answers into one easy to find, search and reference location, we will be answering any 20th Annual National Meet in this thread alone.  We will be posting in other forums with similar instructions linking here.

    As much as we want to put it all out right now, we have been advised to pursue a more methodical timetable.  As such we expect the website to be up and operational in its first revision in 3 to 6 weeks.  Q&A here after the website goes live will be much more responsive.

    Persons that will be officially responding to questions on behalf of the hosting chapter will be:
    Myself 😇      President                 “Sweet Pea”
    Danielle        Vice President       “mom3moos”
    Levi                Secretary                 “theflashman”
    Phil                 Spokesman             “PrometheusVII”

    In closing, I hope you guys are as exited to come out to Vegas as we are to be hosting it.  We all look forward to seeing you when September rolls round!

     

     

    Bumping this Video - great job all of you!

    Hi all not sure if this is the right place to say this but i am organising with my fellow members here in New Zealand a ride and meet for the 4 July witch is a Sunday down here. i have been told by a person who should know about things (llama) that this is the day VMC got started and as down here in NZ we will be the first to see this day in the world i made this the date. Now as we are 3 inlands here this caused a bit off a problem so the meet part will be done by a phone link up with photo's of a well known land marks with our bikes and hopefully us in them and i will post up. There are not many of us YET down here so i think this is posable . I hope this is okay by all on here please let me know if i am wrong and i will try to work though it .As always stay safe and say upright😇. Thanks Kram😎

    Great idea Kram .... go for it brother!  

    Can’t wait to see the photos and hear about how it all goes.....I am sure we will chat about it many times before then!
    (4th July is the birthday of Victory motorcycles, not the birthdate of the Club.)

  9. Even though I can’t join you, I am genuinely delighted.  Well done and thanks to all who have stood up to make this happen.  It is an integral part of our history and something no other FB based group or club can boast.  
    I am also delighted to tell you that the Europeans are also pushing ahead with the very first V2E, which will run through parts of France, through Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and northern Italy.

  10. Thanks again to Gene Hunt and Bob Golden for helping with this.  We are just missing four designs from the 20 years we have run the V2V.  Please see the previous post where I made up two collages of the photos of the 16 designs which Gene and Bob sent me.  Can anyone help with a photo of the missing four?

  11. It seems that you are taking all sensible precautions, responsibility and care.  Being the other side of the world I make no more comment than that.  After all the hard work you have put in I hope the event can safely go ahead, but conversely if the terrible decision has to be made I hope you will use all your great planning to host the 20th Anniversary event next year, and I hope to be there for that.

    Good luck.  Stay safe.

  12. Many thanks to Bob Golden for digging out his collection of V2V t-shirts which has helped us fill in a lot of gaps. We are so close now to having a record of all the various designs, 16 out of the 20 V2Vs - can anyone help with pics of the missing years please.  If you can please send me a PM.  Thanks.

    Hi Mark. I`ll be sending you a few that I dug out of the black hole I have found in a closet. Ha.

    That would be greatly appreciated Bob.  It is kind of interesting for those of us who weren't there (or is it just me that gets a kick out of such things?!), and hopefully brings back memories for those who were.
