Default Greetings!

Hello All!
Im a 35 year old female and I have a 2011 Victory Vegas 8 Ball.

Long story short- I wanted nothing more than for my husband to ride so I could be a regular passenger! But after 15 years of marriage, it was apparent that it wasn't going to happen..... So about 1.5 years ago I signed up for the motorcycle safety course and got my license. Everyone told me I couldn't handle it, but I bought a 2008 Honda Shadow 750cc as my first bike..... I did beautifully - it only took me a month of MAKING MYSELF ride daily before I wasn't shaking when I got off (lol).... And in less than a year, I bought the Victory. I LOVE MY VICTORY. I love it even more that the insurance agent says "are you sure??? Because the big Harley's are like 1300 or 1500cc" when I told her 1700cc engine.

Happy to be here! Love MY American made bike!
Gloria

A soggy welcome from the Pacific Northwet, Gloria. Ain't nothing to dislike about a Victory. That from a guy who's been riding over 60 years and hated cruisers until his body needed a lower seat height. Now I won't go back to what I used to ride. I love the riding and the eatin' in the SE.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:
