Vic has spent 5 years as #1 in customer satisfaction according to JD Powers.

As a Victory mechanic my job is basically to
Change oil
Hang chrome
Make them even faster

That out the door price is very good on an 09

I have been riding Vics for over 5 years, and my worst Vic was a better bike then anything else I ever owned, or built

My 3 years owning a Victory has led to a lot of research, questions, answers and love of the brand.

These bikes are pretty much bullet proof. There is a lot of aftermarket stuff out there now. A few of the vendors are Victory owners and riders.

KevinX is also considered one of if not THE Victory mechanic out there. Just look what he calls his position, MECHANIC not Tech!!! LOL Shows how humble he is.

I compare a Victory Mechanic to the Maytag man. Its lonely for them becase these bikes just don't break. LOL

That does sound like a great deal for that bike.

Thanx for the feedback....was also looking at the New triumph Thunderbird....think I kinda like the looks of the Vegas better and availability of REAL pipes and other accessories almost seals the deal

Click on the two vendor links in my signature. You'll see some great stuff for our bikes.

That is a nice price. I would be torn between the Vic and the Thunderbird they are both nice bikes. I have a Vic and love it. Have fun with either one.
