Nice ride Mike, I'm glad everything turned out okay.

Just for future reference, I always stop my bike in first gear using the kill switch to turn off bike. And parking on a downhill slope I always push the bike forward walking it into gear then putting it on the kickstand so that it can't be pushed a little forward by me or anyone else possibly allowing the kickstand to fold just enough for bike to fall.

Ok, I'm off my soapbox now, ride safe and often.

I absolutely love my new Victory XCT and I know you're going to have many smiles and miles on that bad boy, oh wait it's a girl right?

J/K around, enjoy!

Got her,all good. Late start so I wimped out and took the trailer. Good choice as it was late and I was whipped from a week of business and travel.

Love the bike. Rode only 50 miles on Sunday and it is way more than I expected. More riding this weekend. Will also try to post some pics.

After reading many comments on how the Vision reminds folks of the Jetson's, mine's now affectionately called GEORGE! I know, not a girls name but what the heck.

Howabout Georgina?

Heck, there was a boy named Sue, I guess a girl could be named George. We are living in some strange times right now anyway.

My XC is named Big Blue. Not really a girls name either but she's my beauty.

To many syllables. Need something that rolls off the tongue easily. How about TANG? Short for "Orangutan"? Think about all the similarities and twists of that one.

Not bad. I'll think over that one.
