Default New from Alabama

Looking to buy a victory once I can sell the car. Been riding since I was 18 (mostly Honda's). I currently have a VTX1800. Thought this would be a good place to learn some and do my research before I buy...

Do it! They're great bikes. If you get one, hit me up. It's only about an hour and some change to Tuscaloosa from me

I was just over in Starkville the other day. Had to check out MSU since it was so close. Just an excuse to ride....

Anyway, Do you know of any good dealers in the area? Maybe one that will let me test drive a victory? That would be a huge plus as the demo tour doesn't seem to be coming anywhere close anytime soon

The closest ones are Ridgeland, MS and Tuscumbia, AL. There's a small bike shop here in town that has a used 05 Arlen ness kp, but I doubt the owner would let you test ride. He's a very finicky person. I wish the demo truck would come by us. Me and some buddies are planning to take the Natchez trace down to Ridgeland next weekend to hit up the Vic dealer

Welcome from CT. If you go for a test ride, bring your wallet. I went for a test ride, and ended up leaving my GoldWing there

What kind of bike are you looking for? Bagger or cruiser? Brand new or used? I found a badass 2008 Vegas for sale in Tuscaloosa

I'm looking for a cross roads or cross country. I'm constantly riding from Alabama to North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida to see family so I need a bike that will be comfortable for 10-12 hour rides...

Hi! I'm in Clinton, Ms and did not know there was dealer nearby. I sold my vtx1800 last night.

I'm looking at a vegas and hammer located several hours away on CL.

So maybe I'll find the dealer. I assume you're talking about GotGear?

Wonder if they'll let me demo the vegas 8. I started a thread.
I'll take your adive

I hope you guys don't buy what I'm viewing or maybe you can give me a lead on a good buy. Either way, I need help because clueless on Vicks.

Dill,

Don't worry. I'm looking at bigger bikes like the cross roads and cross country. I'm 6'5 and 220 pounds plus I need a bike that is comfortable for trips all across the southeast (and coast to coast one day... on my bucket list). I'm looking at used bikes also. I can't afford 15-20k for a new one. I'm looking at slightly used bikes that are around 10k. If I see anything I'll be sure to post it on your thread.
