Default Shopped Harley, Bought Victory

Hey Guys and Gals,

I'm a brand new rider in the mid Florida Atlantic region. After completing the two day MTII riders course I shopped for about two months looking for the right Harley. Long story short, I couldn't deny the awesome good looks and reviews of Victory Motorcycles. I ended up with a 2007 Vegas 8-ball having just 8k miles, it just so happened to be around the block from my home. The stars aligned and I made it mine. I've had it a week and have probably put about 300 miles on it so far. I don't have a single complaint or regret about this bike. I'm here mainly to meet other enthusiasts, get help with parts, and friendly conversation. Cheers!

Enjoy the Victory ride! I took a used HD Ultra Classic out and disliked the vibration at idle, the air filter that left no room for my knee, and the high price. Taking my Kingpin for a spin around Lake Superior this week.

If I found a used HD without loud pipes I would be an HD owner. Recently got a 2010 KP.
