Hi guys, my name is Ken Goods and I just became the luckiest guy on earth for the second time!
First... I married the most beautiful woman on earth... quite the feat since I'm pretty average.
Then this beautiful woman goes out to the casino last Friday and wins a drawing for a 2007 Vegas Jackpot!
A little background on the ride. It belonged to the owner of the Polaris dealership here in town and he had it tricked out pretty well and put 2500 miles on it just as a demo running it around town to show what could be done with these beautiful machines. He ended up selling it to the Casino for their promotion. It's never been titled or licensed and I have the original certificate of live birth (Certificate of Origin for a Vehicle)
I'm getting conflicting stories as to the value of the bike and since I'm new to Victories I don't know who to believe. We had to sign a 1099Misc for 19K as the value of the bike for tax purposes. The guy at the dealership said if we decided to sell it that he wouldn't take less than 20k for it. I've looked around (ebay and cycletrader) and it seems that they don't go that high but then again I didn't see one that had everything this one does.
It's got new tripletrees (45 degrees), swept pipes/K&N with stage one mapping, Kewlmetal air ride suspension with the onboard electric compressor, a buttload of chrome, and lots of little things that, as with all bike accessories, cost a fortune.
The bad news is I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford to keep her regardless of how much I want to. I've ridden all my life until about 1999 (I'm 55) and this thing is exactly what I would have bought if I had been able to.
So I'm just looking for some honest, knowledgeable opinions from the guys in the know as to what the value is in case I have to sell her. (I REALLY DON'T WANT TO!!!)
I know pictures would help a bunch and have uploaded some to one of my blogs.

Thanks in advance for any and all input.
Here's hoping that I won't have to let her go and I'll be able to meet some of you on the open road!
