Hey guys, I decided I should officially introduce myself. I don't post a lot, but being new to Victory this is the first place I come to learn about these great machines. Now that they have become "classics", I expect I'll be spending even more time on this forum. I've been riding metrics since the 70's and pining for a Victory for years. I finally pulled the trigger last July, which is a whole story in itself. Being in Western Washington, I make good use of heated gear and ride every day it isn't raining sideways. I enjoy long distance tours and usually go on a couple of 3500+ mile trips each year. I know the Vic will serve me well so I expect I'll be around this forum for many years to come.

Howdy, Merc. Welcome from a long way off. Good to have another Victory enthusiast. Very fine machine indeed. You will discover a new love every time you take it out.

Welcome Merc from North Texas. I'll be close to your neck of the woods in July. I'll be staying over night in Rockport, WA. A forum member from another site will be meeting up with me when I get close to Hwy 9 and Hwy 2 intersection and will join in on the ride up to Rockport from there.

Welcome from another webfoot who fitted his XR with a snorkel and rides with SCUBA gear on.

JW, that will be an awesome ride. When I was stationed at Ft. Sill I could just make it to Wichita Falls without violating the 50 mile rule, so that's as much of Texas as I've seen. But a Texas grand tour is definitely on my bucket list of rides so I'll get down your way eventually.

Well, when you come to see JW, make it public knowledge, cause us Texans like a party. When you get here, maybe you can meet some more of us. We've had a couple of gatherings and some meets. So let us know!

We better give him a fair warning that use Texans can be a little crazy and the fact that there might be one or two cops lurking around in the group. :grin

Hey, I'm always up for a party. But I'm a law abiding citizen so there would be no drinking and riding involved :angel Actually, some of my close family members are LE as are several of my best friends. So lurk if you will, I'll still smile and wave as I ride by (under the speed limit of course). I'll give a shout when I'm down that way. It would be great to meet you guys.

Merc, I'm with you....no bottle until my hand is off the throttle. Passed on joining a Vic owners group cuz they mixed the two. Joined a SCRC chapter that takes riding responsibly very seriously.
We had a break in the PNW Rain Festival yesterday and I rode over to PIR (Portland Int'l Raceway) to help get the track ready for the season. My good deed for the year.

A person can drink themselves stupid if they want. Their body, their money. But, I have two hard and fast : I won't ride with drinkers, or hunt with them. If you want to be anywhere near me on a bike or sporting large firepower, you need to be stone sober.
