Default Hello from Boston

Bill here. Picked up a 2005 Kingpin last summer, only had 4,000 miles on it. Loving the bike so far and am just beginning that expensive and endless process of customizing her and making her my own. Her name's River. I'll get some pics up as soon as I can.

Anyway, I've been lurking for some time but thought I'd finally jump in because I am sure to have a lot of questions and look forward to hearing from you all.

Cheers!

Hi Bill, What parts are you going to change first?

Welcome to the forum.

PS. If think that Victorys are expensive try buying Harley parts, you will be grateful that our parts are 1/3 less.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

Welcome to the club. I ride to work in Somerville all summer on either my 99 standard cruiser or the 2010 Cross Country. I like the freeway.

Welcome to the forum. I sailed to boston a few times last year. My favourite American city (that I sail to anyway). I have heard Halifax and Boston called sister cities. Don't know if thats true, but we give you that big ass christmas tree, so thats something.

Cheers

I've already changed the seat out to the Mustang wide touring 2 piece but it's been too cold to really take it out for a good, long test. I'm hoping to take some long trips on it this summer so I'm looking at hard bags next. I like the looks of the tsukayu strongs but I'm not sure about how they'll fit with the stage 1 slip-ons that came on the bike. So may have to change THOSE out just to get the bags (RPW Thor 2>1?).

Yep! We LOVE that tree each year and it's such a great tradition.

One of the biggest reasons why I chose Victory over HD. I didn't want to spend all my hard earned money on repairs and overpriced parts. I wanted something reliable so I could put that money toward more fun upgrades and trips. I'm thrilled with my choice, and I get lots of comments about what a good looking bike it is and how it's not like every other Harley you see on the roads.
