never thought you’d see a with ape hangers anywhere Fast Bikes, eh. Some of you may been following my adventures a Victory Hammer muscle last year. The Hammer’s back but Victory were to see what we’d make of new-for-2012 offering, the High-Ball.

As the suggests, it’s one of their range with fat retro front and rear and a set of matt apehanger handlebars.

It’s a reach from the depths of the low to the tops of the bars, of which anon. But first, a short lesson.

It’s been well that, when GIs first back home to the good ol’ US of A WW2, a number of them the action and thrills of warfare and handle peacetime and 9-5 jobs. of them got their kicks riding bikes and drifted forming loose-knit gangs.

To their oily old Harleys and perform better (especially in the of an import onslaught from the of Triumph offering smaller, but and faster parallel twins), started shedding weight the big American v-twins by, for instance, down – or “bobbing” – the voluminous and junking the heavy factory seats and lights in favour of alternatives. Ultimately the act of shedding weight was carried to the extreme, by time it became known as and married to further stylish – for the – changes to bars, seats and for sky-scraping apehangers, backrests and exhaust systems.

Why is this relevant to Fast Well, if you think about it was the Yanks’ version of our very own racers, the 1950’s precursors to race replicas. It was an alternative to going fast in a country distances could be huge, in the UK.

Bobbers don’t have to be for beards. The fun for us is seeing if we can maximise the within the High-Ball’s existing parameters.

Although the bike back to those early, customs, the back ’guard been bobbed and the headlight is usual gargantuan bucket. But the feature is the Bad Ass apehanger handle And yes, for those who don’t they’re so-called as you hang ’em like an ape.

I was hugely at last November’s NEC Show people sitting on the High-Ball on stand and listening to them out with all the usual clap about high bars: the blood run out of your arms?”, “It handle” etc etc. The problem many factory customs is the bars are positioned in line the forks, meaning your end up just above your lap and you get off the back at anything above 60

The High-Ball is set up properly with the vertical; you have to lean and stretch for them. At speed torso is supported on a cushion of air and surprisingly comfy provided bike is also equipped forward footrests far enough to brace your legs Obviously ultra-high speed become, ahem, “interesting” and isn’t in Ducati territory, but do your arms pull out of sockets at the legal limit not do you in the first mile.

Instead something else which only occurs riding a high-barred bike. whole demeanour and attitude to change, and horns grow out of head … it’s a bit like how you when you put on your first leather jacket. Bad boys ride Hondas.

What the needs to complete its outlaw is a rorty exhaust. The stock conform to EU killjoy standards so the snuffles rather than Hopefully we can do something about in the very near future.
