Default West Vaginny

Just returned from a great couple of days riding it's east side and a little of western Virginia. Only saw a couple of Victorys beside my own. One was a fellow on a White XCT tooling around Charleston and the other was a guy on yellow 96. He was riding with his father who was piloting a Yami Venture. They were from Pennsylvania. He picked the proper color:



He said the only problem he had with it was that at 28k miles the counter shaft stripped. $300 later he was back in business.

For those who haven't had the opportunity to ride out there, there is a lot of this:



and this:



and these:



And if you come up the mountain at dusk, you may have to swerve to avoid a few of these animals too:



This was the first time I've had the bike out on really good roads with the Mrs and it cut through them like warm butter.
