Default Hi from NM

Hi all,

I've been riding a 2009 KP low, which I love, for about 2 years now. I started on a Honda Shadow 1100, which was a great starter bike, but when I was looking for a larger ride I was turned off by the fact that Honda used a lot of the same hardware on their higher level bikes. I also wanted to go American, but didn't care for looks of the HD's; I also got turned off by the attitude and prices at their dealerships.

I'm also a member of a couple of other Victory forums, but it's always good to get more information rather than less. I've noticed a few folks from one of the forums over here as well.

Keep the shiny side up,
Darrin

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!

For sure! I'm starting to see more Victorys down here since LC Power Sports moved to their I-25 location. If you need service, I'd recommend them.
