Hi there, new to the forum but not new to Victory. I've been riding a Kingpin since 2004 and just recently traded it in on a new 2012 XC. I miss my Kingpin at times, but the XC definitely meets my riding needs better these days. Commuting to work is a great excuse to ride the bike without ticking off (err, I mean taking time away from) the wife!

Guess I could post a picture of my new ride for my second post...

Here she is on her maiden voyage. I've made a few changes since then, but she's still pretty stock looking at this point.

Welcome tonygiotta.Nice upgrade.
I know what you mean about the Kingpin. I ride my friends CR once in a while. My Pin has way more power and rides different too. But the Cross bikes sure handle nice, and the creature comforts are great.
I am looking to move up to either a Vision or CC this year, but will definitely miss the Pin. Maybe I can keep both.

Hey Tony! Its me - So-Crates from ******.net! I bought your Kingpin passenger pegs off you! Im having them powder coated black this weekend to match everything else on this bike!

How ya doing bro? Ive found this site is a little more enjoyable that The ***...I tend to spend more time on here...

Had my baby girl, so I am not out riding nearly as much as I would like to. Cant wait for summer...she ought to be old enough by then for me to leave her with a sitter for a few hours and go enjoy an afternoon! Lets ride soon!

2003 Vegas - straight pipes, Big Sucker air filter kit, black powder coated everything - foot controls, handlebars, clutch and brake housing, fork lowers, luggage rack, wheels, digital speedo with powder coated housing. Relocated key switch, red plug wires. Mustang solo seat. LED ring blinkers in front. Black DEI pipe wrap.

Congratulations on the addition to the family so-crates! My little girl is 9 weeks today. Snuck in a little ride to nowhere the other day while she and mama were visiting friends. I learned from the first one, more riding opportunities will begin to appear after a few months. Hang in there!

Oh, and in case you didn't notice... you're not allowed to mention the "other" forums in here.

Thats awesome man! Mine is 4 weeks tomorrow! Have some medical appointments...and then I am sneaking out for a ride!!

I noticed after I posted this that the mention of other forums was censored. Kinda cracked me up...
Cant wait to hook up for a ride and trade pics of our little women!
