Hey all...
after a long hiatus of 20 plus years I decided to get back on a bike before I get too old to handle one. I got a Honda VLX600 to get the rust off...grew out of it in 2 months. Decided it was time for a much bigger bike..in my search I came across a 2008 Vegas that I just fell in love with. The lines of the Victory motorcycles and the sound hooked me right away. Summer cannot come soon enough.

What got the fire going again for me was attending the Bikes Blues and Bbq rally in Fayeteville, Ar. in Sept. I'm glad I made the jump again. I almost bought a Harley (mostly from urging from friends) ..so glad I'm stubborn and didn't listen..
