Default New Jackpot Owner

Well, I am a new Victory Jackpot owner. I just traded in my 2010 Honda Fury in on one over the weekend (2007 with 9,xxx miles). We (my wife and I) purchased the Fury on shear styling alone. Too bad we didn't factor in comfort when we purchased it. Within 5,000 miles we quickly realized that any distance at all and we were constantly stopping to stretch out. With that said, my new Jackpot is AWESOME! Way more power, way more "real" chrome and way more comfort (of course the Corbin seat helps). I cannot wait to get into discussions within this forum and truly experience all there is with my Jackpot. Thanks to all in advance!

The Fury is cool. The Jackpot is cooler.

And hoooo boy is there a power difference.

Enjoy.

Dual Tour Saddle. I don't use the driver's backrest, but my wife LOVES this seat. The Fury had a terrible rear seat. She was good for about 40-50 miles before needing to stop. She's tiny....5'2" 102 lbs., so padding was not an issue as much as her just plain getting a numbing feeling. On the trip back on the Jackpot, she needed a drink. We pulled into McDonald's and I said, "Honey, do you realize we just went 108 miles and you haven't said a word about being numb?" She told me she could have ridden longer, she just needed a drink. Long story short....get the Corbin and your wife will be happy!

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!
