Welcome to the Victory Forum and thank you for your service! When you get back do some demo rides and let the bike pick you; Victorys sell themselves - the dealers are only there to fill out the paperwork and take your money!

Make sure to go to the Victory Motorcycles website and print out your Military Salute coupon so you can get the discount. While you're there look up the demo truck schedule and see if you can get to your local dealers while the truck is there and possibly qualify for additional discounts!

Good thing you caught that...

Used bikes aren't tough to find and are usually pretty solid. Victory build sturdy dependable bikes for sure. There are classifieds on this forum that are pretty active.

A lot of people are going to see your intro so it wouldn't hurt to let everyone know what model are you looking for, where are you located and what you want to pay. We may find a bike for you before you get back. Of course you'll still have to pay for it though...

right now i am looking for a vegas, preferably with the 100 in motor, for under 8 grand. this is going to be my all around bike, im not really worried about looks, cause i will probobly change it later anyway, just looking for a bike that will get me to work and back, and also do good on the highway when i want to get out and cruise.

Welcome to the forum and good luck over there. My neighbor's son is an MP somewhere in Afghanistan. Check with some of the dealers when you return for a deal on a demo. I bought an '11 demo last year and was able to get a good deal.

Gid day Brendan

Firstly stay safe over there.

Secondly welcome to the Forum. You will find a heap of information on the Victory range and everyone is willing to help.

As the others have said do demo rides and don't forget your service discounts. I have the XCT mainly becasue I'm a tourer type (and have come from a HD Ultra Classic). The Vegas is a a great bike also and really lends itself to after purchase mods if you want.

Anyway look forward to hearing and seeing what you get back when you get back home.cheers

VT,
You've got to work your way up in the world before you can send as much quality time in the gazebo as Schlep does!

An hour after you get off the plane you should be headed to a dealership to pick up your new toy. After that you may want to lay off the beer for a while so you can spend more time riding the pi$$ out of it!
