Default Hello from Maryland!

Hey everyone,

Nathan from Maryland here.

Today I had one of the most anticipated deliveries to my front door I've had to date.



Not only is she my first Victory, she's my first non sportbike motorcycle ever. She's a 2008 Victory Vegas 8-Ball, as I'm sure you more experienced folks already knew from the picture. 5,500 miles, just arrived today from Minnesota. Cleaned her up a bit and introduced her to her new home. I can't wait to get to know you all better and learn about these beautiful bikes!

Any tips for a guy new to Victories for things I should check now or look out for in the future? Cool accessories people like to do? I'm in the dark at this point.

Hey all,

Just picked up my '08 Vegas 8-Ball.



Anyone around the Bowie area? I know there are a lot of bikes that meet at the Glory Days here, I haven't had a chance to check it out yet though.

Welcome Nathan, a good lookin ride you picked up! I just spend some time up in MD with my company and dropped into Victory of Southern MD. Great group of folks there and a good reputation from what I heard from a couple other VIC riders I met up that way. I've heard good things about Chesapeake Cycles as well. Thought I would throw a couple dealers your way. You will enjoy the forums here! Great group of folks and ALOT of knowledge. Safe ridin!!!

Tim

2) conquestcustoms.com
3) kewlmetal.com
4) cycleopsusa.com
5) buywitchdoctors.com
