Welcome! You are at the beginning of a New Love Affair with your new Vic. My three sons have had Victories back as far as '05. We have '05 Hammer ,07 and two'09 Kingpins. We love them. They are so owner friendly. The 05 hammer hasn't required anything but brakes and tires since new. One of the '09s had a weeping clutch gasket when new, that's all.
Just make sure you change the oil as required, watch the brakes and tire air pressure as with any bike.
Tarzan asked if this is my first bike.... I also own a 2001 HD Road King. I have been riding it for the past 6 years. Great bike, but I wanted something with a bold look and more muscle. I have wanted a Vic for years (one friend had a KP, and another an older Hammer) there was a deal out there, so I grabbed it!
I'm look forward to learning more about customizing this ride. It is basically stock with the exception of the pipes.
Thanks everyone! Advice and suggestions on where to acquire parts would be great.
I picked this up last week, couldn't be happier with it. 2008 Vegas 8 Ball with 3,800 miles on it. It's not a perfect bike but it's not far from it. My only plans to mod this right now might be to add saddle bags (need some onboard storage for registration and insurance info).
I’m back on 2 wheels after a couple years of not having a bike besides my Kymco Agility 50cc scooter. 😂
I bought a 2004 Victory Kingpin and drove it home. With this being my first cruiser bike I’m definitely excited about my choice in bike. Having ridden mainly sport bikes and dirt bikes. It’s...
Hello my name is Tony, I have had several Victory Motorcycles. I have also had countless Harleys. I have found that after may many miles that the Victory is a superior ride. That being said I do not have alot of good to say about the manufacturer.
Regardless of all that I enjoy my Vegas 8 ball...
I cant stop accessorizing this thing lol. Live in VT. Member of thevmc. I love riding this thing. Installing new Penske shock and waiting on a custom seat to bring me down an inch. I am short! 5'2" (and 3/4! Hey it matters when your this damn short)!
I'm a new member out of Oregon City, OR. No not Portland, it's Oregon City where its still almost normal and NOT weird! I just bought a 2013 Hammer 8 Ball and love it. I've ridden a total of 12 miles so far and yes, I love it. Nice to meet all of you and if any Victory clubs chapters...
