Greetings all.
I'm a new Victory owner having secured a sweet deal on a 2016 Victory Gunner. It was purchased as second bike meant for longer road trips. First bike is a 2015 Triumph Street Triple R. Having stepped outside the Triumph family for the first time I am trying to learn about Victory and realize that although not being built anymore, parts are out there, so no worries there. I'm a GA resident and addicted to 2 wheel throttle therapy. Hopefully will find the answers I seek on learning about the bike and obtaining accessories for it; which I admit, I think I picked the one Victory that really doesn't have much to offer by way of after market accessories. This has been quite frustrating and I am hoping I did not make a mistake buying this bike. So I'll be looking for guidance and advice throughout the forums.

Can't help you with the Gunner part but welcome to the family. I am a South Carolinian transplanted out here to the Okie.

I have a 2014 XC and I love the look of the Gunner. I'm seriously thinking about helping my son purchase one.
As far a s accessories go I guess it depends on what you want to add. Grips, seat, handle bars, and wheels seem to be readily available. The same with engine dress up pieces. It's my understanding that it's a 106 and anything that you can get for a 106 will work. It doesn't matter what bike the 106 is in. The difference is when you go for Steel Tube or Aluminum frame bikes such as Air Intakes.

I'm sure someone on the forum will be able to point you to the goodies that will work for your bike.

Right now my priorities are, 1. A fairing or nice looking windshield. The wind on the interstate has me white knuckling the grips holding on even around 65 or 70 mph. The death grip obviously makes my hands go numb. Not looking for a batwing, but did see some bullet fairings with sleek windshields that swept back and up which would compliment the sleek style of the body. But no one makes them for a Gunner. Rifle.com is about the only one I've seen and that's "meh". Nice but not impressive.

2. Highway / engine bars to mount footpegs. Again want to turn this into a road trip bike. I believe Lindby is the only one that fits and is black.

3. Driver backrest. Stock seat low saddle is nice but I need that upper support for long distance. Corbin or Mustang I think are my only options and I'll need the whole seat since there is no backrest only set up. $$$$ is a downer.

4. Rear luggage rack to attach to the sissy bar passenger backrest.

Got Viking hard bags already so that was a bonus.

Welcome Steel framer ;-)

Welcome from SE Wyoming. The gunner is a steel frame so it may be that the foot pegs you seek won't be "listed" on some sites to fit your bike but in fact may very well fit. Some of the steel frames have different forks and rear (front?) tire widths that need to be considered but "most" steel frame "stuff" is the "same" across the board. i've put Vegas parts on my 17 Highball for example. If you find something you like contact the seller. Sites frequently get "fitment" for steel frames wrong. I'm not saying order things will nilly but check around because a steel frame, is a steel frame, is a steel frame....sort of ;-) LMYR
