Hey y’all, picked up my very first bike, a 2008 Vegas 8 Ball, about a month ago. I’m in Central Texas, and have taken the MSF.

Welcome, you have came to the right place. What part of central Texas are you from. I have a friend (Victory rider) in McGregor and ride in that area a couple of times a year.

Riding: 2011 XC
Sold: 2003 Vegas
Totaled: 2003 TC, But it's still on the road.
Sold: 2004 TC
This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

No joke? My folks live just outside of McGregor. That’s the first time I’ve ever heard of anyone else who heard of that town!

I love that area, Tokio Store, Horny Toad Bar and Grill. The bar in Ben Hur and there is a lot of great roads. I have had a lot of great rides down there. Ya'll have trees, hills and winding roads. I have rolling plains, cotton fields and long straight roads.

Oh no, I just took the basic rider course. The advanced stuff is coming, just need to make sure I’m ready for it.
