Hi all
Picked up my 07 Vegas 8 Ball a couple of days ago and thought I'd say hi. They're not that common here in NZ so its a real head turner in my little town that's mostly full of Harley riders. Initially I thought the handling was terrible but then once I inflated the tyres over 17psi everything was brilliant. Very different riding experience with it being so long and low but now I'm muscling it round corners I'm loving it. Anyway, I'll be looking forward to contributing to your forums and learning from your experience with this awesome bike

Hello from across the ditch. Are there many Victory dealers in NZ, or did you pick this up as a so called grey import?

Hi again. I'm actually in Wellington right this minute. Checking out the Andy Worhol exhibit at Te Papa. First night I've spent apart from my bike and I'm getting withdrawls.
