Welcome to the Victory Forums.

A couple of pointers. Please take the time to read the “Sticky” threads in the “Victory Forums Rules and New Members Introductions” forum. This will help you out a LOT with the Victory Forums.

The Search feature is your friend! You will find the answers to a lot of your questions by using it.

If you are asking questions that are of a technical/mechanical/electrical/performance nature please place them in the “Victory Tech and Performance” forum. This will speed up a response. Placing them in the model specific forum can delay a response.

Welcome to the site Your 8 Ball looks great!

I'm new here too and I'll be new to Victory in another month or two. I have three dealers lined up, two in CT and one in NY, just need OTD pricing from each and then I pull the trigger.

My dealer is a slug...seems only wanted to sell the bike...trying to get a response from him is trying to et a pig to fly....This time having Lloyds do the work...He is down in Pine Bush NY...and he is very well known in the world of Victory's...Victory's biggest flaw is in their customer support or rather the lack of it.....Hell if I wanted to get ignored I would have gone to Harley....

Hey Mike,
In 05 I bought my bike from Northernmotor sports.The service there was pretty good. It sucks that Dorshels closed. I do my own oil changes,brakes etc. I have been down to Valley View,and they seem like really good people. If I ever needed anything major, I wouldn't hesitate to check them out. I hope that helps.
