i stumbled across this forum while browsing all things pertaining to victory and thought i would join.
i rode in my younger days and after 20 years of not riding i bought a 2003 vegas about 3 years ago.
the following mods were already done when i bought it.
200/50 18 rear tire. mbw signals front and rear. low profile windshield. victory performance exhaust pipes. decals removed from gas tank.
i purchased viking saddle bags this past december. they fit good if i have my passenger seat on but when i use just my solo seat they stick out sideways some. i got to looking and found out that with the solo seat on the bolts pull the bags out due to the curvature of the fender struts. i guess i need to find some small washers to fit in the holes of the struts to make the bags sit level.
i am a short guy and on my toes when i stop. any advice on lowering it keeping in mind my wide tire on the back.
here is a list of thing i have had to repair in the 3 years i have had it.
fuel pump, clutch cable, ignition coil, throttle body cleaned. oh yea, brake pads and rear rotor.
what should i expect to go out next lol. it had 15,000 miles on it when i bought it and now has 21,000 on it.
