Had my new Vegas 8-Ball for a month now
I have had my new 2011 Vegas 8-Ball for a month now, and I'm mostly happy. I traded my 2009 Vulcan 900 for it. So far I love the power, handling is great, looks beautiful!
Now my complaints, hated the stock seat, my tailbone always felt like it was sitting on the rear fender spine. I also think the seat is too far forward, and the pegs are too close. I bought a Mustang seat, whack help a bit, I also have the 2" forward peg extensions on order too, they might help me get the feel of my old bike back. I also think the bars are too far back, I am thinking about switching out to the hammer V-drag bars. Once I get that, I think the riding position will fit me better. I'm not very tall, 5' 11", but the bike feels like it was made for shorter riders. Another complaint is the brakes, the front is just weak, my old 900 will out stop it any day.
Regardless, I bought the bike for the engine, but have been pleasantly surprised by it's light handling and overall high-tech features. I am so glad I did not buy the Fury.
