Ordered a new 2012 Vegas 8 Ball!! I've been looking at Harleys for a few months and didn't see anything local that thrilled me. I came across an ad for a Victory Vegas 8 Ball and was instantly hooked! I knew about Victory, seen a few bikes, but they were not fresh in my mind. I looked at more for sale and watched you tube videos. Then went to the local dealer, only 10 miles away, and went for a 30 mile demo ride. Got back to the dealer and signed the contract!!! Bike should be ready next week!! Can't wait!!

Congrats. I've owned 4 HD's, and there is no comparison in performance. Even with stage 1 kits my Harleys couldn't touch the Vic. 4-valve modern motor vs 1930's technology.

I've had two 103 inch Harley's and my 03 Vegas is quicker with a smaller motor. Is quicker a word??? lol

To the OP, enjoy your new bike!!!

I'm picking up mine tomorrow morning. Had to bump it from Saturday. Sucks to be me, huh?

Try not to drool on the tank when you get it! ;)

just got a call from the dealer. A bike came in that was ordered before mine and a bike came in that was ordered after mine. Mine has not yet arrived! WTF! Might not be able to pick up until Tuesday! Now I'm not happy!

:soapbox: I am a patient person except when things go wrong. Now Murphy's law is going to take over. I have been through this chit before. It is going to be a chain reaction of BS and screw ups and it is not worth the aggravation. I may change the deal and buy the one I test rode. It has a couple of extras that really do not add up to that much more $. I should have just bought it in the first place!

Don't settle. Just wait it out it will be worth it. I wouldn't buy the demo unless it is a great deal. Demo bikes are not broken in properly and get abused by everyone that throws a leg over.
