Default New Victory owner to be

Hi Everyone, Just test drove my first Victory today and to say im sold is an understatement.....what a fantastic bike, rode two 8 balls, a 2007 and a 2009.....guess which one im buying end of this month?...deposit is down and will pick it up March 30th.

This is my first bike since i came to the United States from Scotland and looking forward to riding the many roads America has provided.

I also hope to be a regular on here as I believe good forums have a mountain of knowledge that can be useful..and also not so useful sometimes. And with the upcoming riding season about to start hopefully im putting lots of miles on my Victory.

Cheers!!

Welcome Flying Scot. If you have the bug, definitely go for your Victory. I have 4 different bikes in my garage right now and am evaluating a possible Victory purchase with a trade. It seems to me a good choice but I am a bit anal and will spend lots of time trying to ensure that I have fully evaluated all options before I make any move. That is my own perspective, not necessarily the correct one.

Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles

What kind of BS is that? That means I will see snow tomorrow when I had expected to be visiting local dealers and doing test drives of Visions. Maybe your forecast is just wrong. I really want to do those test rides. If it is wrong, get out and ride today.
