Greetings all...

I'm Mike... and I just got my first Victory on Tuesday... 2016 Gunner... and dayum!!!! I'm in love. I had been riding a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard M50... Talk about night and day. I had seen the Gunner at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show last month and have been obsessing over it ever since. We finally had a nice day to ride on Saturday so I took the M50 out for a ride and ended at the Victory dealership. Pulled the trigger and picked it up on Tuesday... :grin

I look forward to chatting with folks on here... maybe even running into some of you up here in NE Ohio...

Cheers!!!

Mike

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!!!!! I will post a couple pictures shortly...
SubDude... no worries about the Buckeye thing... I'm a Georgia Bulldawgs fan from birth and a Univeristy of Miami Hurricanes alumni... By the way... would you be a former squid? I spent 11 years in Uncle Sam's Canoe Club...

Cheers!!!!

Mike

Thanks for the welcome PaiN... I take it there is a bit of a rivalry with broggyr on welcomes? *chuckle* I don't envy you being in CT... you guys get a shorter riding season than we do... *sigh*

@PaiN is just happy to beat me for once :)

It's ok, it has been a very mild winter this year. I even had the bike out a couple times over the weekend and I might to have some coffee with PaiN this weekend. :)

By the way, gorgeous bike :)

Thanks broggyr... your bike is stunning... that blue is... dayum... Thanks THOM, Sub and broggyr for the compliments on the bike. She's stock for right now... the first mod will be new exhaust... then front light cluster... and after that... we'll see. Right now I'm just stoked to have a Victory and can't wait to take her out again. Winter can't go away fast enough...

Welcome from one squid to another! You a Shellback too? ;)

Nice Gunner. I like the aggressive stance they have and size is just right for medium-length day rides. Longer for younger folks. Right at home in the canyons and mountains too.

No rivalry....but you're right about the short(ened) riding season. Which about now with no bikey for over 3mo makes me start to post crazy things. Everyone can take a breath though, I restarted my insurance, we are expecting good weather... so I'll be taking my first ride of 2016 this weekend :laugh
