Hi new Victory rider here, I retired from the Canadian Army in October and just bought myself a retirement gift with the help of the Full Throttle Salute, a 2013 Vegas 8-Ball. I live in the Toronto area and unfortunately I won't get to play with my new toy till winter is over. Bring on Spring.

Thanks guys.
DakotaRider I wish mine was in the garage at least then I could go out and look at it LOL. I've left it at the dealership till the spring.

lunaticrider where in Ontario are you from?

Dave E same question where in ON are you? what did you do in the CF? I was a vehicle tech.

Pckrfan yes I am hoping for an early spring too. To bad about our Packers, bring on next season. I have been a Packer fan since birth, Dad named me Vince after Lombardi so I never even had a choice LOL.

Cheers
Vince
