Default Howdy All

Don't own a Vic but like them. Current ride is a Screaming Eagle Electraglide, a bunch of Muscle cars and street rods, jeep, trucks boats and jetskis.
Have a 70 Chevelle SS 454 WITH THE LEGENDARY LS-6 motor.

Never driven a Victory and would like to know from owners pros and cons of Vic ownership.

I live in Maryland and would like to hear from locals some of the hot spots where Vic owners hang out.
Thanks in advance folks...

Welcome!

Chevelle sounds like quite a machine. I'm a Ford guy, personally, so I hope we can still be friends lol

The downsides to owning a Vic? Polaris quit making them. That's it.

The upsides? Easy maintenance, stone-cold reliability, huge power potential, some pretty unique styling on most models. The Cross bikes and the Vision are probably the most nimble heavy touring cruisers around. 32k on mine, and it's needed a fork seal. That's all. My wife's Vegas has 11k and I had to replace the rear brake pressure switch.

I know we have more than a few guys from New England here, good cats. Can't remember if any of them are from MD specifically. I'm sure they'll chime in at some point.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

Mine:
2011 Cross Roads, crimson red
Lloyd'z ATS, IAV, VFC-III. Vic "High Performance" air filter. Ness Big Honkers. Funsies.

Hers
2015 Vegas 8-Ball

Welcome to the Victory Forums!

Same bike as Luciferiad and pretty much the same sales pitch! I have about 55,000 on mine and not counting wear parts (one replacement battery, one set of for seals, and 5 sets of tires) my only surprise was a $2 fork seal that took a few minutes to replace.

Retired USAF, IYAAYAS!

2008 V-Star 1100 Custom Bobber project

2011 Crimson XR with Forged Highway Bars / Hard Bags / Passenger Backrest, Ness parts including Smooth Layback Plate Frame/Mount / Rad 3 Mirror / deep cut grips / drivers floorboards /shifter peg / brake peg / passenger pegs. Witchdoctor black rack, Lloydz filter / timing wheel / VFC III, 7Jurock windshield, Drag Specialties seat.
