Default Rob Here, Pics coming soon

Just made the switch to a Victory Hammer 8-Ball. I used to have a V-Star 950 and loved it, decided I needed more power. I stumbled upon the Victory dealership and went back and forth many times and after a long long look I decided on the Hammer. The look of this thing is great, and the speed and power to match! Unfortunately I still need to grab it from the dealership this friday. Pics will be for sure following.

Default Welcome

That V-Star 950 is a good running bike. A friend of my bought one a few months ago. He has no problems staying with us when we ride. He usually has his wife with him also so he does take it a little easier. Going up the mountains here in Az. he has no problems even with her on the back. He does talk of getting a bigger bike down the road also. You had a very good bike,hopefully the new one is a great bike for you. Enjoy the new ride.

Thanks moose!, and Yes the 950 was a great bike. Ran with no problems at all, easy maintenance, and rides smooth. Truly one of the best looking cruisers I have ever seen/ridden. It definitely can keep up with most vehicles out there, however, I was hoping to skip ahead to my final bike that I KNOW ill end up getting either ways so I can begin customizing this one, and plus a great trade in value with the dealership is always a plus. Thanks for the great welcome everyone !
