Default Hello from central ohio

I am Kyle and from Columbus Ohio. I recently picked up a 2004 Vegas Arlen Ness and love it so far! It is my first fuel injected bike and it's weird buying something and not immediately pulling the carbs and rebuilding and syncing them. I hope to gain a lot of knowledge through the forum and eventually be able to share what I've learned with others.
Is there a collection of stickies or compiled info about our bikes on the forum?

Congrats on your entry to the wonderful world of Victory. These bikes are easy to work on - maintenance, not repairs - they never need 'em. If you got the manual with it, read it cover to cover. If not, get one on line. Very important: The oil level is read with the bike VERTICAL. Others have come on here with problems caused by reading it on the side stand. There are other things unique to Vics and don't hesitate to ask, we are here to help you out of your money.
FYI--Before VisionJohnny chews your ass, do up a profile and signature. That will not only save your butt, but help the rest of us to help you.

No Victory did not number this 2004 models, but they have there own special VIN number and was the first time Arlen Ness joined with Victory to produce this model. It was a promo version before it was introduced in 2004. I read some where 500 were going to be made, but I believe that many weren't made do to sales. The cost in 2004 was 22,000.00 to 23,000.00 out the door. My bike cost 22,083.67 on the west cost. Ask questions as the members here will have the answers.
