Hi guys my names dave from lil ole england how you doing?
I currently have a harley sportster custom.
I'm thinking about another bike, but i can not decide on a vegas or a harley fat bob, There are not too many victory dealers where i live.
I have to admit after looking at a vegas in the nearest showroom to me it sparked that feeling you get when you have to have something.
they did not have a vegas for a test so i took out an older bike for a test, yes i liked it.
I have been looking for fuel consumption for the vegas but can find any info, i am really concerned about fuel consumption.
as you might know fuel here in england is $9 a gallon, so i need to get this right, i know what the harley will burn.
maybe this is the wrong place to ask, but what is your opinion on victory v harley?
thanks
dave

I just did my first measurement. 34.4 mpg I'm hoping it will improve as it's not what I was expecting. I bought it used with 2400 kms so I don't know how it was stored over the winter. Maybe I need to run some cleaner through the throttle bodies... I have a medium size windscreen on it which I'm sure takes a hit.
