70 degrees wow...we had 60 today totally not normal... it's usually 26 degrees during the day. Too much salt and sand on the roads to venture out riding. I went from a Buell 1203cc to the Big Vic...that shouldn't be a problem...just getting use to the size and turning capabilities will be interesting. Take it easy dude...and be careful out there.

2012 Vic Hammer 8 Ball
Touring seat with passenger backrest, Cobra tripro 2-1 Stage 1 exhaust system,
More to come...
