Sunday, I picked up a 2008 Victory Vegas 8-Ball with less then 100 miles on it. The guy I bought it from let it sit for 3 years untouched, and yes he bought it brand new. I had it towed to my garage, where I plan to drain the gas, change the oil and replace the battery. The tires look good and the brakes are working. Should I be looking at anything else once I get it started?



My previous bike was a 2009 Honda CBR 600rr. I was just too tall for the damn thing (6'4"). Plus, i'm getting too old (38) and every muscle hurt after riding the CBR.



Well, i hope to learn a lot about Victory's here on the forums. I am indeed a forum junkie. :)

Welcome

Welcome to the forum. I am also in NJ and all that I am looking for is those warmer mornings. By the time you get your bike checked out it should be a little warmer and then all you will have to look for is lots of ridding and having fun. Good luck with your new ride

Welcome aboard, NNJ here aswell. Both are nice bikes you have there. Being the new to you is an 08 I would check the date code on the tires. I usually replace when they reach 5 or 6 years old, cracking is a bitch. Enjoy the ride

LOL its warm enough already, I take mine to work when I can.

I do my own work for the most part. I normally use locomotion powersports in Suffern ny, but in a pinch and maybe just oil or some s100 Motorcycle mall, i won't let them touch my vic though they just started selling vics

true that. Saturday is my sisters birthday and I have to help my brother in law with rebuilding a room in their house. sucks. Hopefully, I can get some work in on Saturday. Oh, I do have to register the bike on Saturday morning. I order all my parts that I need and they should be arriving Friday.

lol FML I also order $900 worth of new LED Lights (front and Rear turn signals) and a side lighted License plate frame. Now i'm looking at exhausts. I have problems, the bike doesn't even run yet!


I got these, minus the front fork turn signals. I got regular front LED lights.
All black too
