Default Sorry Guys! (Switching to the dark side)

Just wanted to say Thank You to everyone on the forum. Everyone has been so nice and helpful. My wife can't stand the Vegas and I completely understand. Its an amazing bike for me but not for us. Stopped by the Victory dealership and looked around but not much help or enthusiasm from anyone there. Went to the HD dealership and they rolled the red carpet out for us. Sat on a bike and next thing I know they are rolling it off of the showroom floor and Im running it down the interstate. I road three bikes Saturday. I decided on the Road Glide. 0% financing for 5 years also was a huge bonus and the wife was really excited another huge bonus! I just listed the 8Ball on Craigslist.

I'm glad you found a bike you love , what bothers me is hearing about more lack luster service at a Victory dealership ....

I used to own a Yamaha Royal Star Venture and so I am still a member on a Venture forum. I am friends with many of the members there. In the past 3 years I've seen several of them "jump ship" to a Harley product. Also seen a few switching to a Victory.

What a person rides is irrelevant ... the fact that you ride is and that you enjoy your ride.

As for me, if I had the bucks I'd probably be riding an HD also simply because I've always wanted one ... that said, I was at the Vic shop yesterday (who now is also an Indian dealer) and almost had an orgasm over the new black Roadmaster!! OMG that is gorgeous.

Keep the rubber side down and good luck. Don't think it matters what you ride or even if you ride as long as what you are doing works for you.
Enjoy.

You usually pay more for that kind of service, but good luck with the new bike.

Take care and have fun with your new bike. Just curious though; did you ride any of the Indian TS111's?
