The Last Call for Comments on 13 Nov 2006 inititated a five-day period for
final comments.  Following this comment period, the Big-8 Management Board
has decided by consensus to create the newsgroup

This group will be created on 27 Nov 2006.

NEWSGROUPS LINE:	Polaris Victory motorcycle rides, tech, resources.

CHARTER: is for discussion of all aspects of Polaris
Victory motorcycles, hereafter referred to simply as "Victory"
motorcycles. Topics include technical discussion, ride reports, product
and new model reviews and announcements of upcoming rides.

Posters are expected to abide by normal Usenet standards of decorum (for
example, lurking a while before posting, etc.) and to refrain from
sending, as well as ignore, articles intended to disrupt the group.
Bottom posting or interleaved posting will be the norm. Quoted material
not needed for context should be deleted or "snipped".

Examples of inappropriate posts are the following:

   * Off topic articles, including:
      - Commercial advertisements
      - Personal advertisements not related to Victory motorcycles
      - General discussions not related to Victory motorcycles
      - Money-making schemes
      - Chain letters
      - EMP AKA "excessive multiple posting" spam

   * Articles with unacceptable content, such as:
      - HTML
      - Copyright violations
      - Excessive quoting
      - Threats and/or advocation of violence
      - Binaries, except PGP signatures, X-Face headers, and other
        ancillary meta-data

   * Attempts to subvert message filtering or to pretend to be somebody
     else, such as:
      - Forgery or imitation of a valid e-mail address
      - Excessive morphing/nym-shifting AKA "using sock puppets"

The group will be unmoderated and will not be gated to a mailing list.
