Default After 2 years away from Victory..

Well, after 2 years away, I’m back with a new (to me) Magnum. Man, I missed the Victory bikes. I have deliberated and went back and forth between the New Harley’s, new Yamaha’s, and Suzuki’s. My wife found this and said “This one”.

Glad to be back!

It’s nice. After 23 years together with the wife, I think I’ll keep her around.

The crash still haunts me and I almost bought another Highball. But this is a different beast. Not quite as ballsy but good enough.

Now I just have to find some stock mufflers in Canada that don’t cost an arm and leg.

At first glance I thought the XC had the same part numbers.


Check the dealers for take-offs from an upgrade. They usually go in the garbage but if they have space perhaps someone hung on to a set.

Put out a wanted ad in Kijiji. If your existing ones are after-market and you're just looking to get back to OEM offer them up for trade.

Check the bike wreckers.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Appreciate that Canuck. I literally just brought the bike home yesterday. Did a quick call around earlier last week. Some dealers wanted ridiculous amounts for take offs. I just contacted the ad you sent me.

Stock mufflers on it already, but I have an idea I want to try.
