I live in Calgary and our local Victory dealership sucks to deal with - so I am looking at the private market instead. I guess for starters I was hoping to find a local chapter of the Victory Riders Association or at least see if there are other groups available in Western Canada.
Welcome.. And do not give up 6th gear.... It's a beautiful thing....I am headed for my third Victory. Had a KPT, sold it to get the XR. Got crashed by a cager in July. Now just pulled the trigger on a deal in AZ. Unfortunately, I could not get the deal I wanted from Cycleworks in Calgary. The sales guy, Kimble, was great. His GM wouldnt go for the deal I wanted and wouldnt counter offer either, so I looked elsewhere.....you should check out Elk Island Victory. Its a hike about 3 hours but has a good rep...... try the 40 loop through Kananaskis for a nice day ride.
