National Motorcycle Museum Victory Cross Country RaffleTime is running out for your chance to win and help support the National Motorcycle Museum and get a chance to win a one-of-a-kind Victory Cross Country motorcycle. The collaboration between Victory Motorcycles and Arlen Ness, one of America’s first motorcycle customizers, has produced some great and truly unique Victory Motorcycles.
Here’s your last chance to win a one-off 2013 Victory, a bike that Arlen and son Cory Ness devoted some serious attention to – over $10,000 in Ness custom parts and paint alone.The National Motorcycle Museum offers you a chance to donate to win this great custom Victory Cross Country. It’s the 2013 fundraiser bike for the Museum, and as the year closes, December 31 to be exact, some lucky person will win it. It could be you!Victory Motorcycles donated a brand new Cross Country to the National Motorcycle Museum, but shipped the bike directly to Arlen Ness Enterprises in California. Cory and Arlen worked their magic on the bike selecting the best components from their catalog, and then treated the machine to a custom paint job. In total, the Victory’s value is nearly $30,000. But this is a one-of-a-kind Ness custom, so it’s hard to put a price on it!The passion for creating great bikes now spans three generations of Ness customizers. Arlen’s son Cory offers, “We are honored to support the National Motorcycle Museum. The Museum is a great example of pure passion for motorcycles. We hope our customized 2013 Victory Cross Country will be the most successful fundraiser motorcycle the Museum has had. We started with the best bagger in the country, added a one of a kind custom paint job and then loaded it up with Ness accessories from front to back. I’m really happy with the how the bike ended up – and the winner will get a great ride.”It takes only a few minutes to donate to win on the National Motorcycle Museum website, and you could be the lucky person to be riding this great Ness-customized 2013 Victory Cross Country!Each year since 2002 the National Motorcycle Museum, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) located in Anamosa, Iowa has offered a great bike that Museum supporters can donate for a chance to win.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
