New Bordy owner - Sydney AUS
I've just bought a bonzer new '13 Boardwalk in Pearl White.
This is my first cruiser, I'm more of a head-down, bum-up, Power-Ranger kind of rider. Even though I love that 'other' US bike brand, over here Harleys are like Toyotas, everyone's got one. To me, that takes away most of the appeal, before you even consider the technical advantages of Team V.
I wasn't in a hurry to buy, but when I saw the 2014 colour scheme, I wasn't excited, so I grabbed one of the last white '13s around. I love the modern take on the retro styling of the Boardy, the spine and the chiselled flanks of the tank are just horn. I love the Victory headlamp, too. The only thing I think is missing is a dual ( left and right ) exhaust system, I think the swingarm is a little unsightly on the left side. Obviously, not a deal-breaker though.
I'm a little disappointed that the cruise control is no longer offered for this model ( even though the local Victory website still lists it ), I'm chasing some more noise and I think the engine's really tight, she's not quick, but I didn't buy her for drag racing.
So, all good, looking forward to learning more about what I've just purchased, thanks to all of the contributors on here.
