grew by about 3% for 2005. This was in Motorcyclist magazine this month. Victory and others will jump into this market just like they did with the cruisers. This is good news for all of us because the manufactures will be pushing the market and bikes forward for more sales. Those companies that just sit on their behind and not improve the touring bikes they make will find there market share dropping or staying the same. While those on the front line of new and improved touring bikes will pick up market share fast.
