Default BigBK's Judge

Hey guys, finally got her home. I love taking pics of new places I find a long the way so i figured I'd start my own thread so as to not crap up several.

So here she is "Big Lu"



Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee...timmies snow and bikes...



Not a bad place for a coffee after the first ride.



Words can't express how happy i am with her. Going to be a great season!

Thanks guys,

It's not ideal weather. I plan on taking her day by day for a few weeks. Need a good hard rain to wash away the snow banks before i count on having her in the morning for the daily commute. By the end of my ride today the weather turned. Beautiful when the suns out, but not so much when it isnt. Windy today too. So i jagged her in. All hosed off and patted dry and tucked away until...tomorrow? Maybe, never can tell east coast Canada. It can be t-shirt weather for weeks then mother nature hits yo with a random foot of snow in April.

Default Just for perspective...

This was my ride for the past 5 years. She was my first actually. So needless to say the switch to Victory is a huuuuge one. But i've done my homework. Been shopping around for 2 seasons now. Always loved the look of the Vegas 8ball. Then my buddy bought one at the start of last years season and after spending time with the brand i totally fell in love...then in walked the judge...as of one day; no regrets!



Got to admit. Coming off the KLR 650 and going to that 106 was intimidating to even think about. I was looking hard at the Vulcan 900s, My mind wandered to the honda interstates, took a liking to my buddy's boulevard for a brief time. I even had my eye on a nightster 1200. But i was like...nightster is 1200...whats 500 or so more? So we have 650-1730 lol. But I'm no hotdog. I take er nice and easy. Promise

Got to take you at your word about not being a hotdog Big BK.

I will say this though, clearly you are a piece of work.

Congrats. I envy the place you are in with your new baby. I hardly remember the last bike that got me all tuned up like that.

HAHA Ya piece of work indeed. Think the Mrs. would tend to agree. I had a good spill my first season. Low speed, gravel, turn, stop sign, fake elbow. That was 2006. I wasn't hot doggining then just a beginner mistake on an October morning. I can ensure you i learned a big lesson that day. I watched my Dad lower a few buddies over the years too. I grew up with a good respect for the machines. I joke around on the interwebs a bunch but when I'm on my bike I'm all business. Too many idiots on the road these days. Really have no ambition to be one of them.

It was indeed Blue. It's a beautiful out today. I awoke to bright sunshine...then i walked outside. C-c-c-cold today. So i just stood in the garage and stared at her instead. lol

As for the number plate...I have a plan for them. Should come to fruition in the upcoming weeks. I'll keep you posted up in here.
