Default Vegas Owner noob

Hey everyone, I have been wanting a Victory for awhile now but didn't have a good excuse to get one. My buddy went out and bought a 883 sportster a few weeks ago so that sparked my interest in riding so I found this 08 Vegas 8-Ball on craigslist and talked him down to $5400, now im addicted to this thing! This thing is waaaay cooler than my 84 Honda Magna.

Previous owner installed all seen in pics so far and list includes:

extended forward controls
Mini Apes (brand unknown?)
cruise control (brand unknown?)
aftermarket pegs
touring seat
bags
Stage 1 kit from Victory


I have ordered HID lights and found a PCV on ebay for it so far. I plan to install a wideband A/F gauge on it and a tach for tuning soon. Im going to try making my own IAV to help with the popping on de-accel.
