Default Picked up my first Victory

Rode 60 miles through a rain storm to get it, but it was worth every second

Only has 8k miles on it. It idles a little rough when its cold but I tracked it down to the Throttle Body Adapter having a little crack in it due to dry rotting. The bike needs a little work but I'm still happy as can be.

Congrats...I'm waiting to get mine. Deal is done, paperwork is signed, they are detailing the bike. All I have to do is get back stateside. About two more weeks, and this tour is over. I can't wait for that first ride out of my driveway.

I have to tackle that adapter too, hope to run down a thread or vid on it. I have the manual, but with all the little fiddlybits for throttle linkage etc, seems like a job where there have been lessons learned by others.

Congrats!
