Default First time Victory owner

Hey all. Just checking in. Picked up a 13 Boardwalk a few days ago and absolutely love it. Figured the only thing I was missing was a community to be a part of. So, here we go. Living in Colorado, hope to find some peeps to ride with. Thanks for the site.

George Lynch! Awesome guitar player! ... Showing my age.
Welcome! NICE SCOOT that Boardwalk. The fenders are dead sexy! I've often thought what one would look like with chrome version of High-Ball apes and a set of Ironbags from Eauclare Wisconsin. yeehaw!

I too am a newb Vic owner after two Harleys. It's a very different animal.. It's kind of like what Harley would be if it let darwinism set in and actually evolved.. Bunches less gaskets, better engine arrangement, OHC, gear primary, right-hand drive opposite the primary.. etc etc etc.. Too many improvements to mention. I'm sure you'll be pleased for the long haul.

I'd ride with ya but Asheville is a wee bit east of you for a short hop.

Congrats on the Boardwalk, and welcome to the forum. One more post and you'll be a full fledged member.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Thanks guys.
The last bike I owned was an 85 Suzuki GS 550, so I understand what a real motorcycle feels like now... I'm completely hooked. And yes, it was the rear fender that sold me on the boardwalk. Now I just need some $1000 saddle bags lol.
Thanks for the welcome

I'm going to rock a solo luggage rack and roll bag so I can see them white walls. $250 vs $1000. Easy 5 minute install also.

Welcome from Longmont.
I run a Cross Country Tour and no, you can't stow your gear in my bags.

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
