Cool New Victory Rider 08 Kingpin 8 ball

I'm Easy, just purchased my Kingpin last weekend. I'm new to the motorcycle community and Victory ownership and so far I'm enjoying the experience. If anyone has some good intel on fairings and hardbags for the Kingpin please share.

Welcome from So-Cal. I'm also fairly new to motorcycling, but here's a suggestion: Before you get a fairing, ride your new 'pin. Ride it a lot. Then ride it some more. I thought I would need a windshield or fairing, but I've learned from my riding that a full face (modular) helmet actually suits my needs better. For me the big issue is cross winds- in which windshields don't help a whole lot, but they can cause extra buffeting.
So ride and ride and ride some more before you decide what you need to do to improve your riding experience. Then do the mods that suit you best and continue to ride the crap out of your 'pin.

I've been pretty happy with the hardstreet hard bags. Google their website, don't look at the rebranded ones that victory sells.
