Very sorry to hear this and I wish I had something to say to help you feel better but I think we both know it's something you will have to work through as a process.

Please do stop in and say hi when you can. You will be missed.

Better stick around here with us, even if you don't have a Victory anymore, those folks on that Vultus forum don't like to talk much.

Prayers for you, your family, and friends.

Condolences on the loss of your brother. Mine died in '98 and I still miss him greatly.
No Vic, no worries! Keep on hanging around and do a show and tell on the replacement bike.
Where did you post the leftovers?

First off, you had a shitty week and I am so very sorry for your loss. I will pray for you and all involved. I hope your friend heals up.

That said, I do hope you hang around. The folks in this forum are a great bunch. I no longer have any motorcycle and probably will never ride again. I was a victim of a hit and run on my XCT on New Years Eve. I am still recovering. I have a broken knee and still hanging around here. Why? These people are like family. They have not turned their back on me and still are here for me. You may not have a Vic anymore, but you still have us! So, I hope you keep coming in as I do! May God bless you in your trying times.

Condolences to you and your family on the loss of your brother. Hope your friend has a full and speedy recovery and his/her mother recovers. Prayers offered for all.

And, you don't have to ride to maintain an interest in bikes and the friends you've made riding them.
