Thumbs down Anyone else having problems with a 2015 bike?

I have a 2015 Victory Magnum I just purchased in Aug. This will now be the second time that it is going in the shop for repairs. The first time about 3-4 weeks ago, I went to start it and the thing wouldn't start. In fact it kept trying to start over and over again with the switch in the off position and the key out of it. Weirdest thing I had seen a bike do. Ended up that the starter relay was fried and fried all the wiring along with it. They fixed it and I was on my way. Now I have another problem. Had trouble getting the bike started for my ride home from work. Finally got it started and half way through my ride (0530 nice and dark out) the head lights start flashing on and off, the check engine, battery and abs lights would go on and off, the radio was turning on and off and then the dash would shut off and the engine would just die then turn back on in a few seconds. Did not feel safe riding it at all. They are coming to pick the bike up now to take it to the shop and hopefully fix it for good this time.

Just wondering if this is an anomaly or if this is something that others are having problems with as well.

Holy shit Brother , only thing I can think of is loose battery connections , but with your bikes history I shudder at the thought of guessing ... Good luck .

For such a new bike, that's kinda shocking to hear all the trouble you've been experiencing with it so far..

Checked all connections and wires. Nothing loose or anything wrong with the wires that I can see. Already checked that stuff out. Really not happy with this. Starting to think I made a bad choice.

First problem hit just before I hit 500 miles and now this and I am just about at 2500 miles..... Complained to Victory and they opened a case on it. Gonna try to get something out of this because this is ridiculous. First time took 2 weeks to fix and this time who knows. 12 weeks of owning it and probably 3-4 of those weeks of that it will be in the shop.
