    Do you have a estimate on how much taxes you would have to pay if you win? Thanks.

    1. Ryan

      You’d have to claim the value of the bike on your income tax. So add $29,000 to your annual income, and then figure your taxes out. A lot of variables come in to play on that so every ones tax liability is not always the same.

  2. Armand

    Sure is a bummer that you have to be a U.S resident.
    I am from Canada and would have no problem donating for a chance to win a sweet ride like that.

    Hopefully that is fixed soon

    1. Shane

      I agree with Armand pity you don’t allow Canadians to enter

      1. Jim Wohlgemuth

        That makes at least three of us Canadians feeling left out.

        1. Raz

          Yes my friends, here is another canadian (Me) missing out. It’s a shame.

      2. Jim Wohlgemuth

        That makes at least three of us Canadians feeling left out.

        1. Jeff Sullivan

          make that 4.
          Fortress America strikes again!

  3. BobbyB

    How many tickets were sold for last years raffle?
    $5 isn’t bad, but if 1 million tickets are sold not sure I want to enter.

    1. Morgan

      I agree with BobbyB

      How many tickets are being sold?

      50k to 1 odds?

    2. Dorene

      A museum is benefiting.

  4. Glen Pannell

    Everybody seems concerned with how much taxes they would have to pay if they won. I personally would like to win, but it is where my money is going means more. It’s the national motorcycle museum. I ride and love being around bikes. Museums make money off of donations to survive. If I win the bike or not, I still feel like a winner.


    I guess we don’t buy any victorys up here in Canada , since we can’t even participate in raising $ for a museum that as bikers we’re all involved in. No ticket to buy- no come to museum ? I guess !

    2. Ryan

      I live in Canada as well and I would love to win a new Victory, especially since we have no prize taxes here. We have to pay tax if we win in Vegas or something but all we do is fill out a paper and we get every penny back. I have received about 15 emails reguarding this draw. Yes I would like to buy a few tickets. We are building a motorcycle museum here in the Windsor area and I buy tickets every draw for it and I am happy that my money is going to something I can go enjoy even if I didn’t win a bike. I think it is very unfair that we can buy all we want from J&P and whoever else but to get emails saying buy a ticket, oh never mind , not you.C’mon guys!

  6. ricardo otero

    can i participate from puerto rico

    1. BlackVTX

      I would like to know also

  7. Glenn Thomas sr

    I love own this Bike

  8. Don Campbell

    I would love to own this bike, If I win I will sell my Raider and ride this beauty.

  9. Pedro

    I love this maching

  10. Geoff

    If I cant win the bike cause I am not an American resident then I guess I am not allowed into the Museum either. Our Australian Soldiers can go and help you to Victory in Iraq and that other dust bowl not worth mentioning, let alone fighting for but how dare we even think for a second that any one of us Aussies can win your precious “Ness” Victory bike. I guess the Museum is off my “what to see” list when I am over there in August.

    1. Geoff

      Will you take my money if I make a donation?? It’s Australian Dollars..!! oh no.. not Australian dollars… unclean… not the right colour.. (and yes we spell Colour with a “U”) And Aluminium with an extra “I” but that’s beside the point right now…

      1. Geoff

        And we dont spell Machine with a “G” in it….

        1. Geoff

          Somebody stop me…. No I’m Spartacus

          1. Ryan

            Do me a favor eh Geoff, don’t stop-I got a good laugh. I live in Windsor, Ontario, Canada-right across the ditch from Detroit. We can’t even use our money at a corner store. Our money is all different colours and even has see through plastic strips on the bills, plus we have coins for $1 and $2 denominations, that seems to really mess them up. When I was younger I went to the bars over in Detroit and I’ve probably lost about $250 at least because everything looks the same! They think we are weird and yes it is COLOUR. Have a good day eh!

    2. Mel

      Agree with you Geoff 100%. Have cousin & friend living in Idaho. Was planning to go visit him in near foture and drop in at the museum on the way. Fat chance now.

  11. Barry Dardar

    On April 6, 2013 I sent a check #3614, Wells Fargo NA to the National Motorcycle Museum for $25.00 for entry into the 2013 Arlen Ness Victory Cross Country Motorcycle Raffle. Several weeks ago I received five tickets with mail in stubs to send back to the National Motorcycle Museum. Since I had already sent $25.00 for the chances, I filled out the information on the tickets and mailed the stubs back to the National Motorcycle Museum. On July 17, 2013 the National Motorcycle Museum mailed a letter with my stubs stating they had not received payment with the stubs. I need a clarification. I had already mailed a check for $25.00 to the National Motorcycle Museum for entry into the raffle. What happened to my check and why did the National Motorcycle Museum accept my stubs when I mailed them?

    I was under the impression and taught at a very young age that all contests in America (federal law) must have a “no purchase necessary” clause and anyone can apply to win without making a purchase. If that is the case, why are you forcing a donation for a contest, or where can I submit myself to the contest without providing a donation?

    1. Jason Strickland

      Raffles held by charitable organizations such as a museum, school, or non profit are exempt. This is not a contest. It is a raffle. You pay for the ticket, not the prize.

  20. Robert Centro

      Come on Robert Buddy… “ONE AND ALL” ??? Serious riders one and all…?? as long as your from good old US of A.I guess.. get over yourself..

  22. Patty

    It is a great cause. I ride for charities all summer long. I believe in giving back and love riding with other like minded people. I currently ride a 2012 Victory Crossroads, traded my Harley for it, LOVE IT!! It is a dream ride, I could sleep on my baby. I would love to have another Victory especially an orange one, my favorite color. The dealer I bought my bike from is small, in my town ad i like to support local businesses, so they only carry a few bikes in their showroom. I would have lovd a diffeent color bike, perhaps red or orange but I ended up with black. BUT the color is nothing compared to the ride, I am a Victory Girl, I have crossed over..:) Enjoy riding everyone.

  23. Laura

    I live in Canada I would have no problem donating..oh well :(

  24. Jim Bell

    Why do people from other country’s complain about not being able to purchase tickets ? I don’t remember them offering me a chance to buy tickets on anything from there country????????

  25. Duane

    I’m originally from Anamosa Iowa, but I spend my winters in the Philippines. Would be awesome to win this nice little treasure. However I will not return to Anamosa until mid May, which makes it difficult to pickup or fill out additional documents. The last thing I won in Anamosa was at the annual Pumpkinfest, but I left before I could find out what I had won in the raffle. Remember the main purpose of these raffles it is a donation. The tax issue is not the blame of J & P Cycle but IRS. Pretty awesome you can select what method you wish to enter, most of all you need not be present to win.

    Happy Holidays to all my whores and bitches…

  26. Dan

    I was planning to buy a half dozen tickets, but at checkout the only options appeared to be using bank account information (sorry, no way!), or mailing it in. Is there really no Paypal or credit card option, or did I miss it?

    1. cush

      As per Iowa Section 99B.17 we can only accept personal checks, money orders, or electronic checks for entry donations. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Tattoos were covered up, Rosacea, birth marks – it seemed to be able to do a fantastic job
    at covering without actually looking like makeup. Mix it
    until the mixture foams and turns into a paste like consistency.
