My Vic has about 20k miles on it now and has carried me every where I've wanted it to. I ride rain or shine hot or cold just had her out a few days ago started right up at 19 degrees and started again at 9 degrees to get home.
Year:2001
Model:V92C Deluxe
Eng size:92 CI
Pipes:Stage 1 slip ons
Seat:Stock
Wheels:Stock Spoke
Accessories:K&N Filter, Battery Disconnect, Kurakyn cup holder
And the story: Bought this bike last year after being about a 100 miles from home and finding gas in the oil of my Roadstar 1600, I noticed the gas and some grimy junk in the oil so I grabbed my lid outta saddle bag told my buddies it'd probably blow up on the way home and rode it wide open down the turn pike on the way home, I was in complete shock when both the bike and myself made it home, the next day I did and oil change and gravel dropped out the bottom of my engine, I found more larger rocks in my tank so I finished the oil change loaded it in the truck and took it to a Harley dealer that had a couple Victories for sale, The one I bought wasn't the prettiest, didn't run right, it bucked and kicked barely stayed running when u let of the throttle but It was gonna be mine. I took her home and started to get her all cleaned up and began the tune up process first thing I noticed when the air filter out it was chewed out in the center (photo below) , I found parts of the culprit to ended up disassembling the entire air box after removing the tank and had to clean the throttle body as-well bits of mouse everywhere. Now I understood why it wasn't running right and I think that weird ticking in the motor was more pieces. After allot of work a fresh oil change and some pain staking detailing she is now what you see today.

Clean

Very nice bike. You make me feel guilty, it is so clean! I live in the SW, no snow, but my bike looks like it has been in the snow. Last bike I rode in the snow was my 05 Triumph and the snow was not fun to me. Take care and be safe on that slick white stufffff.

Ty for the compliment

Fridays ride was a bit sketchy at first hit some slushy icy crap about a block from home and the Vic decided to have a sliding contest. Kept her upright though and the rest of the ride was smooth as silk. Last time I really did a heavy cleaning on her was in August for a local bike show.
