Default 07Vegas

Hi everyone. I just registered for the forum. This past weekend I traded my 07 GSXR 1000 for an 07 Vegas. It's quite a change as I haven't owned a cruiser in many years. I really love the styling of Victory bikes and as an added bonus I was surprised to find that they are much smoother than the offerings from H-D. Anyways, I look forward to meeting the forum members and hopefully will be able to contribute to the forum.

Welcome to the forum!

I too came to Vic from sportbikes - although I still have the Kawi Z1000 that I commute on (the Vic is a little too wide for lane splitting...)

It will take you a few days to get used to it - and next thing you know, youre gonna be chasing down sportbikes!! I cant believe how well my 03 Vegas handles!! I have no problems catching squids on twisty roads with it...and it freaks them out!

2003 Vegas - straight pipes, Big Sucker air filter kit, black powder coated everything - foot controls, handlebars, clutch and brake housing, fork lowers, luggage rack, wheels, digital speedo with powder coated housing. Relocated key switch, red plug wires. Mustang solo seat. LED ring blinkers in front. Black DEI pipe wrap.

I live in Kansas where the roads are straight, flat, and most of the turns are 90 degrees. Although, when I worked in the high tech industry, I lived in Hillsboro for 12 years. I had an R1 out there and really loved riding all the roads in the coast range, especially out by Vernonia.

It did take a few days. The first day I got the peg feelers on the pavement multiple time. It's getting better though. I'm really loving this bike.
