About the Author

Michael Dapper was a Polaris employee when a locked war room in corporate headquarters hosted discussions that led to the company entering the motorcycle business. He was there when Al Unser, Jr., rode into the spotlight on a pre-production V92C in 1997, and he received a personal call from the corporate office the day the brand died. As a freelance writer, Dapper wrote all forms of brand communications for Victory throughout its 20-year run. He also worked for the brand at rallies and events nationwide. He has ridden versions of every Victory production model and has completed seven Iron Butt rides on Victory models—including the High-Ball. Lee Klancher's adventures in journalism have sent he and his camera out to climb Mount Triglav in the Julian Alps, explore breweries on four continents, and ride backcountry motorcycle routes in the Bolivian Amazon, the Australian Outback, and on the island of Hokkaido, Japan. He has appeared in Men's Journal, Draft, Motorcyclist, and dozens of books and calendars. His favorite subjects are independent craftspeople who earn their livings working with their hands and doing what they love.
