Default New member from Houston - 2009 Vegas 8 Ball

Hello. New guy from Houston here. I just picked up my first Victory. 2009 Vegas 8 Ball, and man this is a sweet bike.

Ive been riding for about 12 years, but always stuck to sport bikes for the most part. I was ready for a change of pace and wanted a cruiser, but wanted more of a custom look. I looked at the Harley Fat Bobs and the Honda Furys before making my decision and neither of them even came close to the quality, styling or riding comfort of the Victory. My biggest concern with going with something other than Harley, was the sound. I wasnt sure if anything could replicate the awesome growl the Harleys make. Not only was I wrong, but this thing sounds better IMO.

Picked up it on friday and put about 200 miles on it this weekend. Ill try and get some better pictures as soon as this rain clears up.

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!
