Hey all,
Just picked up my 09 KP a week ago. It had the swept pipes on which sold me on looks right away. Kinda bummed to find out now about the performance of the pipes (or lack there of). I had been looking for a Road King when I came across the used Vic at a local metric dealer. The price compared to the HD along with the fact that its injected made it an easy sell for me. That and the fact that at opening night for Gettysburg bike week the ratio of HD to Victory was about 500 to 1. It's nice to not be like everyone else. Now, I can't wait to start wrenchin on 'er!:)

Nice lookin' bike. Congrats!

I know what you mean about the HD thing. I did a charity ride this weekend. About 90 bikes, probably about 80 were HD, and just 1 Vic ... me. thumb up
