Default How folks!

New Victory owner here! I've been an admirer of the Victory Magnum X-1 since test riding one almost four years ago. I thought it would be my future bike. Then Polaris closed the Victory division and I thought that was that. The years have gone by and Harley and Indian have been whipping out the same old stuff and I kept thinking about how perfectly that Magnum had fit me, not to mention the fact that now so few people actually have them now. Whenever you go out these days there are endless rows of black Street Glides and Road Glides. I decided that if I were presented with a good opportunity I would buy a gently used Stealth Edition 2016 Magnum X-1. Well a couple of months back I found a guy in PA who was selling his beloved X-1 with only 3000 miles on it and I quickly made a deal and bought it. I have since put about 1500 miles on it and have gotten tons of compliments on the bike! I hope I can get lots of tips and insights from the members on the forum so I can keep riding this awesome bike for many years to come!
