Tinman's True Victory

April 25, 2018

Well on this next Bike Bio, a motorcycle that will give any Harley Davidson a run for its money...or may just end up being "Victory-us"! Seriously, this bike is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Its a 2013 Victory Cross Country Factory Custom owned by Mark "Tin-Man" Lites.

 

 

 

 

 

A former carpenter and retired NY State Police Officer Mark is now commander in chief/President of Reign Riders CMC and a devoted man of God. Oh yeah, he also enjoys a good cigar.

 

 

The 2013 Victory Cross Country Factory Custom is black with silver flames with factory custom forged highway bars and kicker speaker system.

Mark had some serious performance goodies installed to make this bike fast and mean but he didn't settle for just anything you find in a catalog. Not for this Steel Horse! He had the tri-states best speed shop and Victory Motorcycle specialists do the work. For his baby he trusted the folks at Lloydz Motor Works out of Pine Bush NY adding Lloydz Hi-Flow Air Filter, Lloydz adjustable timing gear, Vance and Hines Hi-Output slip-ons, a Dynojet Power Commander V and personally tuned on the dyno machine by Lloyd himself. This motorcycle was dialed in perfectly and runs like a champ. It sounds like one too!

 

 

 Okay! In case you were wondering, "Whats up with the pic of a Victory in front of a Harley Dealer"? I took the opportunity and did a quick photo shoot of Marks Victory during a charity event we attended which was hosted by Hudson Valley Harley Davidson.  A special thanks to Mark "TinMan" Lites for allowing me to take the photos of his beautiful bike. He's got a great season of riding ahead of him... and we will be there as always, right along side him.
