Default Looking to buy a 2013 8-Ball

Howz it everyone! I currently ride a 09 HD 1200 Nightster an I'm looking to get a new bike. I'm really looking at the 8-Ball but I'm not the tallest guy in the world, standing at a whomping 5'2". My Nightster has mid-controls an I feel that it is the best riding position. Can anyone out there give me insight on the 8-Ball? From the specs I've researched the seat height should be fine for me but not to sure about the controls. Could use all the pros and cons, thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum. Note: Victory calls any stripped down and blacked out bike an 8-ball. Which model are you looking at?

Present ride - 2013 Victory Vision, black, ATW at +3, Lloydz air filter and adjustable intake, PC5, 30,xxx miles

I'm looking at the Vegas 8 Ball, was trying to post a picture but couldn't figure it out.

You should try one out. Peg position looks to be pretty reachable for most riders.

any victory dealers will let you test ride the bike you have intrest in,
that will give you an idea how the bike fits you and if you need to re locate the pegs,i am 5'6" and ride a jackpot and it fits me like a glove.
