Default new member loving my bike.

Just getting my second post in. I've had ninjas and Vulcans and kx 's and yz's and blasters and ttrs and I just sold my vtx 1800F and baught a victory vegas 8ball last night. I got home at 8 at night unloaded from the truck and couldn't wait so I took it for a spin in the rain. With a temp of 10 degrees I decided I need a windshield. But I loved it gonna take a little to get used to the little differences but I like it.

10 degrees and RAIN? I am guessing here but figure you mean 10C.

vtx 1800F
Powerful bike... sold mine before getting my Vegas.

I am a prolific rider and the gas was killing me. I ain't riding in a 10 degree wind chill though...

Welcome and hope you enjoy your new bike.

Hey dill pickle how does the vegas compare to the vtx you had. The non hydraulic clutch takes a little getting used to. And the engine noise.
