Default Any other horse jockey sized Kingpin riders?

I'm not a big guy, 5'7" and 145 lbs.

I get comments often on my Kingpin Tour: "Isn't that bike too big for you?" Etc.

Fact is the Kingpin is the only Victory we short people can comfortably handle at low speeds and in parking situations because of the low seat height. I have no real problem with it, other than trying to park it on gravel!

Any other pint-sized riders riding the massive Victory?

I will tell you this: This bike has no idea I'm even on board and positively flies!

I was 5'7" 145lbs in 4th grade . Just kidding , (not really) but that KP must be one well balanced machine , and easy to handle for a guy your size to ride without problems . Its a testament to the KP's design . Why Vic dropped the line is a mystery to me .

I've honestly weighed +/- 5 lbs of the same weight since age 18 and that was 17 years ago! It's a blessing and a curse.

My son's 5'8" and maybe 145. He's only been allowed to throw a leg over my Kingpin. Looked like it would be a fine ride for him though. Sure is grinning in the picture I took!

I am 5' 9" and 185lbs the only Vic's I found huge where the baggers. Is the Kingpin bigger than my Highball or the Vegas? My Highball fits me oh so perfect! (Sigh) now if winter here in Calgary would just fuck off I could ride her again.

5'8" 170 lbs .. Both my KP and XC fit just fine .. After 5 Years of HD Baggers just makes it even easier ..

5' 61/2" and my Vegas fits me perfectly. No need for any of that lowering nonsense.
