Get the tach from Kate. There's a thread going right now trying to get 10 people together for a group order.

I like Phat Performance for a lot of stuff like a clock and thermometer; and Cruiser Customizing is pretty good too.

Congrats and welcome aboard!

Like Bbob just mentioned, there's a group buy going on right now for a brand new Tach. Check it out: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=12503.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land

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!

I believe I see highway bars on your bike (#1). First bike had a tach and wouldn't ride without one. Soft lowers make for a very comfortable ride on cooler/cold days and store easily in saddlebag. My wife likes the passenger handholds. I added comfort grips and recently added the helmet locks to the ends. Victory mesh jacket is real nice for hot summer days. I put on billet license plate holder as I was burning $1000 accessory coupon. I use the highway pegs seldom. Enjoy your ride!! Want tips on camping equipment for the Kingpin Tour, message me.

Hey KPR, start a thread with your tips on camping equipment. I think it would be good to know!

Was in LaCrosse last Saturday and brought on the rain!! Spent two hours at the dealership drying out and waiting for the rain to end. Will start post on camping equipment when I round up model info. Made it a week with equipment in trunk and clothes for two in saddlebags on Kingpin Tour.
