Smile New owner

Hi to all, just picked up my 2011 Jackpot last Thursday and had a good long ride on Sunday, and I must say, the bike is everything I could have wanted and dreamt about. it handles really well and goes like a scalded cat . My name is Wayne and I've been riding bikes for the last 50 years and still haven't shaken that feeling of excitement when I walk out into the garage and see my bike waiting for me.
I've just picked up from Ed at the new Victory dealer here in Brisbane and my wife says she still can't get the grin off my face. I hope to meet some more Victory riders here in Brizzy soon.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Hi Wayne
Did a lot labouring for my dad in Redcliffe when I was a teenager. At that time there were koalas everywhere.....great memories, and beautiful country there.
Awesome bike mate- you'll find the Victory crowd will grow very quickly with the Brissie shop opening.
Ride safe mate.
Cheers
Kris
