Default Happy new Victory Owner!

Hey everyone! I am now the new owner of a 2011 Kingpin 8ball. I went from a Honda Shadow Aero 750 to the Victory beast 106ci engine. It's like going from a 4 cylinder to a V8 and I'm loving it!

Thanks broggyr. I'm in SC so I'll be able to ride this bike more than I could my Shadow living in the Midwest.

Welcome to the boards. Tons of great information on this site. I was looking at the Shadow 750 before the Vic. Glad I made the right choice.

My Shadow 750 was my starter bike. Maybe I jumped the gun a little bit, but after only riding 8 months I jumped up to the Kingpin. Part of it was due to my Shadow being too small for 2 people on the hilly SC landscape. I felt like it even struggled on the flat Indiana roads.
