Someone asked about my riding experience. Well I am an older rider and been riding since I was legal to drive(maybe a little before, but we won't tell anyone about that). Owned a LOT of bikes over the years. I tend to gravitate toward the Sport/Touring type bikes, but have owned my share of cruisers and a variety of other things.
Also starting to dabble with the idea of getting an adventure bike and maybe doing a little offroad fun. Never done any off road type riding so I think that would be fun since there are so many roads that turn into rock, dirt, etc and are not very suited for a lot of bikes.
So I am considering adding some bikes to my stable that suite the riding. I learned a long time ago that no matter how many farkles I put on a bike I was still never able to make one bike do everything well for every situation. So I am thinking about picking up a bike or two over the next few years that fit the types of riding I do or anticipate doing.
Victory made such beautiful bikes I have wanted one for many years. I found myself on an Electra Glide Classic and was pretty happy with that, but circumstances forced me to sell that bike and I haven't owned another cruiser since then. The word about Victory being shutdown and I was pretty sad about it. So I thought I would get what info I could from you guys and decide if 1. the bike would fit me and work for me 2. are you still able to get the support, parts, and things you need for your bike 3. the common issues, items and things I might need to know before buying one. 4. Are there any specific years that I should consider with the Kingpin that are better than others?
Thanks for the responses and the greetings!
