Default Ready for my Vegas

I've made up my mind... I'm ready for my Vegas.

I'm currently riding a 2010 Honda Shadow RS. I love this bike. It's nimble and quick and fits me just right. The problem? At 750 cc, I just don't have enough power to keep up with my hubby on his Victory Hammer-S or to maneuver in rush hour traffic.

I need more power!!!

I've shopped around and I love the feel of the Vegas sitting on it in the showroom. They're doing a demo days here in October and I am so there. Unless something goes drastically wrong in the test ride, I'm ready to buy it!

Why wait...Victory dealers will let you test ride the bikes on the floor. Test ride what you like then buy it during the demo tour because there is usually a perk.

I'd do that in a heart beat, but there are no Vegas bikes to be found! There was a sexy blue and white one at the dealer's two weeks ago and today, it's gone. They looked and couldn't find any in Texas. The nearest one we found was in Kansas!

If we known they were going that fast, we probably would have gotten our freak on when we went in previously and snatched that bike up.

Kruizerchick, just do it. My wife was on a 750 Honda Shadow. We had the same problem, no power. Now she rides this beautiful Vegas. Shes more of a rider than I am. She just loves the Vegas.

Congrats on your order.
But I think you are in the wrong place to sell that shadow.

The Vegas has shipped... should be here this week. I'm getting the swept pipes installed. I'm hoping I'll be riding it next weekend!

(I'm so excited!)
