Default New Canuck member from Ontario

Hey from Newmarket Ontario. Posted the other day but who knows where that posting went? Anyways just checkin in and wanting to say hey dudes..picked up a 012 Hammer 8 Ball yesterday...nearly new only a few miles on her. Got a awesome deal and after seeing it ...it was no contest for any other bike. Been riding a Buell XB12Ss for a few years it was getting tough to go any distance on her, guess I'm gettin old. Around town it was awesome...sad to see her go. My buds were hoping I'd get a real HD this time...lol. And I was thinkin that way...but no such luck at the last moment I seen the Hammer...and a smile came to my face. That back tire will do that...lol. Anyways hope spring comes quick ...I'm going mental already. Cheers

Thanks Leopard...guess you use Bowmanville Victory dealer if you need anything eh? Just tryin to figure which Vic dealer is the best to deal with. Not that I need service.. just in case I need stuff or advice. On the "other" site a dude had a 012 Vegas in Stouffville area...good to know I have company. I use the gta forum site occasionally. Cheers man.

I just bought the bike a couple of weeks ago from Spoiled Sports in Bowmanville, Dave the owner was awesome to deal with. Obviously haven't needed any after sale service yet, but I've heard great things about them.

That's awesome....good for you. And appreciate the heads up. Probably use them more so than going through the city. It will be quite different ridin a cruiser...use to sportbike riding position with the Buell. Should be fun though...couple awkward moments riding around the neighbourhood and then I'll be good to go I'm sure.

Welcome to the forum Kool. I'm riding a 13 CCT, living in Wasaga. Just moved here from BC. Bike is stored for the winter with the Victory Dealer (Thom Boys) in Owen Sound. Don't know if that would be closer for you.

Thanks BigBoss for the welcome....Cross country could be the next bike in a couple years for me if this Victory is as good as everyone says. Bet you wish you were back in BC at this moment and go for a Sunday ride...lol. Wasaga is cool...wild crazy place many years ago....I know I was one of them. Think Owen Sound is a lil far...but a great destination to travel to and check out some V stuff sometime this coming seasonfor sure. Great idea. Black...great colour choice...alot of detailing though...lol.

The links to the pics are not good. Try again.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
