Picked up the Judge

Put my first 250 miles on my Judge driving around the Island. Hitting as many turns and straightaways as I could. The bike is awesome. Cornering has great ease. I was scraping the peg knobs so I found my limit. The bike overall compared to my V92SC is amazing. You can really feel all the tech that Victory has applied to their bikes. I rode for about 4 hours straight, no pains today. The bike fits me perfectly. I am a tad over 6 and the handle bars and mid controls are nice to ride aggressively. I was only able to get up to a lil over 120 before the next upcoming turn. Trying to max it out to see the top end...

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

I posted some pics in the show off my judge forum.

Nice! Welcome on board! The judge looks darn good in black. I hope one day I can test ride it. I bet there are some really amazing scenic routes to take on the island. Do you guys ride around in shorts, tshirts and flipflops with no helmets? Have fun, ride safe! and keep us posted on your adventures.

Crash and burn....

Well,

I figured out the cornering ability of the judge. Laid the bike down going around a blind left hand turn. The speedo is stuck on 35 mph...so I guess that is how fast I was going. The speedo is not working anymore, which is frustrating. I rode her home, ego bruised and all. Sore, but only some minor scrapes. Nothing to write home about.

The ground slowed me down enough from going into a cattle fence and on to someone's property.

Will post pics later, but after doing a parts survey I am looking at 5 grand for restoration. Was dark when I got home, and the sun is not up yet.

Love the bike, just frustrated on the lay down.....bikes only 5 days old!

Safe riding.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. The bike's fixable, and it sounds like you made it out without much damage.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Thanks....Most of the parts I can replace myself, just concerned about the speedo, is it hard to replace?

Did the tires loose grip?

Did you lift the bike by grinding a hard part?

Did you get on the brakes?

Have you taken an MSF course?

Glad to hear your ok, I imagine that the stock tires are shit + add in the lack of handling ability that the bike has + add in how hard you were pushing the bike to do something it cannot = disaster. Sorry man, ride safe...

[QUOTE=saddlebag;110398]Did the tires loose grip? Yes, there is gravel on the road...

Did you lift the bike by grinding a hard part? - I hit the footpeg and footbeg support.

Did you get on the brakes? yeah once I saw a fence coming up.

Have you taken an MSF course? - yes, in June.

I was going uphill and the road makes a blind left turn going back down. I pushed left and leaning but my speed was probably to fast for the turn. I felt the foot peg or foot peg support hit the ground. I know the footpeg has a feeler, but it is no longer on the bike or visible. I felt the bike drifting toward the outer lane and then the bike just came from under me. I went forward left off the bike.

Makes me wanna cry. It sure looked good in black.

If it's any consolation, my friend fell out of a tree stand while hunting yesterday and broke both his wrists. It coulda been worse on ya. Take care running hard into that which you cannot see...
