I live two miles from Randy's Cycles. My wife and I rode my Jackpot to Lake Lawn on Lake Delavan this Sunday. There were two other unrelated Victory cycles there. I have a great back roads route to the Lake Geneva/Delavan areas if anyone ever wanted to get together a group ride.

Not in the slightest.

The VTX, like pretty much all Hondas, are great machines---damn near bulletproof---and mine was no exception. That said, I've put about 1500 miles on my Vegas and every indication is that the same level of quality and reliability is present.

Hey guys....south suburbs here (Orland)....season's pretty much over, but looking forward to meeting up for some rides next spring. My 1st Vic should be arriving this week, hoping the weather cooperates so I can at least take it around the neighborhood and get used to the JP's 250 rear.

Cool. Good idea riding around the neighborhood. That's the hardest part to get used to, slow corners. Highway riding is a breeze. Won't take you to long to get used to it. Enjoy!
