Default New to Vic

Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and new to Victory. I have owned sport bikes in the past and ridden quite a few HD's. I recently bought a new 2014 Vegas 8 Ball. Im looking forward to learning from everyone about this great new machine I have.

Thanks
Greg

Thanks LILMAGS500. I got my first ride on it today at 5 degrees C and slightly snowing. HaHa. So far I like it.

Default Snow!

Welcome enjoy the new bike. That riding in the snow is hairy or should I say scarey? It will make your butt pucker. Rode a couple of times in the snow, do not care for it. Be careful with that new ride....Did you have them install that snowtire for a car on the back?

Haha, No snow tire but I am starting to think I should have with the weather we are getting. It was barely snowing and melting when it hit the pavement so It wasn't treacherous out. It sure was cold though.
