Thumbs up How are ya's

Here's my intro. Pushing 55 years old, and ridden bikes since the mid seventies. Always leaned towards triumphs. I love the parrallell twins and have just purchased a new xtc, the first v twin I've ever owned. In the past I have ridden lots of Harley's owned by friends, but they just didn't float my boat. Too much vibes, with very little giddy up. I currently own a 2009 triumph thunderbird ( which is a fantastic bike ) but after hiring a road king on a trip to Canada last year,I just had to get onto a bagger with fairing and sound system.
I was hoping that Trumpy would bring out a proper fairinged bagger with the current incarnation of the thunderbird, but instead they went with that abomination of a Harley copy, the thunderbird lt. The xtc doesn't have the Mongrel raw power of the 'Bird but fills the brief in every other aspect. I'm looking forward to putting a good few miles on her over winter, we ride all year round in Sydney, and I hope the Victory experience is good for me.
This is a great forum, with a vast knowledge bank on performance and mods. Looking forward to reading and responding with Y' all. Cheers.

If you have been lurking around this forum for a spell, then you know these Victorys take a while to break in--over 3,000 miles. She'll be a lot peppier then. Simple and inexpensive mods unleash more power, enough to keep up with Victoria's 100km speed limit, eh?

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
