New to the Jackpot

Hello. I am about to buy a new 07 Jackpot and have some questions about it. I have been riding for about 40 years. I started on Honda 50cc minibikes am currently riding a new generation Honda Magna. While I love the Magna, I couldn't pass up the yellow extreme graphics Jackpot in the dealership. The only thing that worries me a little is the rear tire and how it feels in turns. Can anyone help me with how long it takes to get used to this and how well it will eventually handle when I do feel comfortable with it?

Thanks.

Thanks

Thanks for the help. I put some money down on the jackpot, but it hasn't transferered to me yet. The Victory site was down for the dealers yesterday and so I have to wait until Monday.

love the bike, hate the windshield

OK, I have about 2000 miles on the Jackpot now, and love it. I ordered a windshield from National Cycle ( the Dakota) and hate it. I have so much head buffeting it is crazy. Help!!!!!

Bought a 07 Jackpot

So you don't like the windshield? I'm not a big fan of it but I was wondering how well it functioned on the highway and in wet conditions?

In Oahu

rdmiran,

Good to hear from you. I love my Jackpot and just completed more mods to it. I live on Tripler and would be up for a ride anytime. I do travel quite a bit due to my job but I will be home until 10 Jan. Lets go riding before that. I have a small group of guys I ride with (mostly from work) but most of them are off the island visiting family. you can email me at bigramfan70@yahoo.com I saw a 2004 Victory Hammer here on the the Island at the NEX several weeks ago. Talk to you soon.

Is it a Vic dealer or a Polaris dealer?

Unhappy Kona Victory

I called the number from the web site for Kiser Motorcycles in Kona, HI.
they said it must be a mistake they do not sell Victory Bikes ...oh well someday some one will get a dealer in Hawaii...

To Bad

It would be nice if they opened a Victory dealer in Hawaii but I'm sure it won't happen anytime soon since the vic website talks about maintaining the current dealerships and not opening any new ones.
