Hello everyone,

After about 6 years of being off bikes, I took the plunge today and purchased a 2013 Vegas 8 Ball. I love this bike so far. I just took it up the road and back (I pick up my helmet tomorrow), but I can tell this will be a fun bike.

About 6 years ago, I had a bad accident (my fault, single bike crash). I recovered quite quickly, only to find out shortly after my wife would be pregnant with our first child. Well, riding went in hold for the next 6 years, but I'm back and ready to roll again.

Being used to sport bikes, (I'm 33 now), I think this Vegas really fits my style more, and will be more comfortable to ride.

Take care y'all!

Do a riders course to learn what you have forgotten.
Tell insurance company so you get a discount.
By the way do one for your car to and get more discount.
Its a good way to get some of your money back.

Thanks everyone!

Good advice about the course. I'm planning on it as soon as I get used to the bike. I'm out riding in low populated areas, as I familiarize myself with everything. It's all beginning to come back.

Thanks and ride safe!!
