Hey all!!

Months ago my wife got bit with the bug and started looking for a bike for herself. She took the course, got her license and then the following week bought a Suzuki GZ250. Feeling left out (and behind lol) I decided to do the same and give up some of my other toys to go out and get myself one.

Here a few weeks ago I purchased my first bike since "borrowing" my father's Honda V65 some 20 odd years ago. Have not been on one since and did a lot of shopping around and finally decided on a 2003 Vegas. A lot of people warned me against going too big but when it all came down to it, this bike was the one I felt most comfortable on.

There are a number of customized and/or after market parts on it and I am still trying to nail down exactly what is what so I am looking forward to browsing through all of the posts here and soaking up as much knowledge as I can!

- Michael

Welcome to the Victory Forums.

A few helpful pointers,
  • Please take the time to read the “Sticky” threads in the “Victory Forums Rules and New Members Introductions” forum. This will help you out a LOT with the Victory Forums.

  • The Search feature is your friend! You will find the answers to a lot of your questions by using it.

  • If you are asking questions that are of a technical/mechanical/electrical/performance nature, please place them in the “Victory Tech and Performance” forum. This will speed up a response. Placing them in the model specific forum can delay a response.

Please add the year and model
