It's all relative, isn't it? The last 16-inch-wheeled Victory we rode was the apehanger-equipped High-Ball just over a year ago, and I am happy to categorically state that for all-around riding and general comfort, the Judge is a distinct improvement, largely due to the deletion of that 15-inch-high appendage. Instead of a handlebar that hangs you out to dry for the sake of style, the Judge has a normal, flattish one that makes the effort to meet you halfway. Its footpegs have also moved an inch or two rearward (Victory calls them "mid-mounts"), which is a step in the right direction. And where the High-Ball made do with a solo seat, the Judge provides passenger accommodations. Aside from those things, restyled bodywork and paint, and retro wheels and tires, the song remains the same.
