Default new member from memphis

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.

Welcome aboard!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.
Riding: 2011 Cross Roads & 2016 Springfield
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!
