Default New from Wisconsin

Hey everyone I'm new to the Vic forum, new to riding, new to victory motorcycles. Just plain new.

Last October I purchased my first bike, a 2007 Victory Vegas(silver/black w/ black wheels and swept exhaust). I took a rider safty course shortly after, and got a few rides in before winter set in. I have an intense itch to ride now that the weather is starting to warm up, so I've been searching the internet for anything Victory and came across this site. I have been looking over posts for a couple of weeks and figured it was time to say hi.

I love this site already, there is a ton of knowledge here and the shop manual download is great(almost bought one off of ebay).

Just saying hi, and thanks. I'm sure I'll be posting a question or two this summer.

Jessie

Welcome aboard, Jessie!

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!

Welcome. I too just got my Victory. Picked it up 2 weeks ago and try to ride everyday. I just finished the Rider course with Ride Chicago. Good course, was fun. Rode the KP to the course, got on the Nighthawk then back home on the Victory. What a change.
Will be headed to Minneapolis on the 2nd of April.

Welcome 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.

A soggy welcome from the Pacific Northwest. The more you ride that Vegas the more you're going to like it. Victorys are like that. I call them the thinking man's cruiser.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
