Hello from Asheville.. Closest Vic' dealer I think is better than an hour away (shamefully). However, while out of town (kudo's to Phil at Victory of Louisville) I got to finally check out a High-ball in person.
Nice nice scoot. It's changed my mind I believe from having Yamaha Raider on the brain for better than a couple years now. The High-ball is set up perfectly for what I'm after, except for maybe some carry capability (which can be done with I suppose a sissybar bag or some kind of quick detach bag). Saw/heard some RPW Slash pipes while there.. Ok I'll take 'em!
So given I have no local dealer to support within an hour drive (that I know of), and a solid quote from a solid dealer, I foresee a trip over the mountain for a couple guys from Louisville to deliver a scoot and get some Smokey Mtn riding in, hopefully before the end of the year. (wood flooring project must happen first for wife-acceptance-factor).
There's my story and I'm sticking to it. Sold on the Vic's and sooooo glad to see the company doing well. After two, I cannot see me buying another H-D. Done with overpriced chinese bikes.
