Default New victory owner from NC.

Hey guys. I just bought my first Victory about 3 weeks ago. It is a 2010 Vegas 8-ball that has a little over 7k miles on it. I was previously a sport bike owner (2007 CBR 600RR & 2010 CBR 1000RR) but decided I wanted to go the cruiser route with my new bike so my wife and I could enjoy the ride more. I looked at Harley's but came across the victory vs. Harley videos on YouTube and my decision was made. I love this bike so far, great looks and the ride is very comfortable. I have already been browsing the site and have seen some nice bikes and some useful info.
