Default Looking At Buying Ness Victory? WHAT IS THE 1st THING TO DO!

Hi there ...

Just been to show room today and like the look of the Ness Victory 09?

I'm 6'4" Tall and wanted to get a gauge from other tall riders how they felt in the saddle after a long ride cruisen?? I'm test riding next week.
Plus is there any other watch outs anyone would like to share around this model bike??

many thanks.

Cheers

Pipes and intake is the most common first mod. For you height you would want some forward controls.

Email Brian, he is 6'4 and he makes the modified mounts.

I have one. Really, really like it. I am under 6' but have let a 6'3 friend ride it. He was more comfortable on it than my Heratage Soft Tail Classic.
It is pretty fast but I had My localmDealer and Lloydz do a bunch of upgrades on the engine and tougher clutch because of 65% increase in hp and tq. Had engine bored and stroked toa 114 CI, heads worked over, larger fuel throught body, new adjustable USB fuel computer, hotter cam, Barssanin 2 into 1 short pipes forced air inlet and more efficent air filteretc., etc plus led turn signal front and rearthat you really can't see unless they are flashing, verticle licence plate, led lights for engine and a few other things including a second seat beside the beautifully stiched that comes with it to take my better half comfortably with me.

I rally like the removable windshield and saddle bags (I have nitrous in one). It takes only a few seconds to remove them or install them.
I guarrantee if you feel comfortable on it for you longer ride you will love it!!!

Please let me know what you do.

Steve

Love NZ. I own radio stations and years ago I sold a product that I manufactured for radio stations in Christ Church and Auckland. Love your country. My consulting engineer just returned a week ago form there. Great Sailing and very pretty country. I bet it is a beautiful place to tride too.

Yes I have a 09 Ness - It's great looking!

I am 5'9" but I have let a 6'2" + use my bike and he said he was very comfortable on a 100 mile ride. I rode a Vision. Little hard to get used to the "JETSON" look but was the most comfortable bike I have ridden. It was like being in a very comfortable Lazyboy recliner on the road with two wheels!
