Hello. I am new to Victory motorcycles and cruisers in general. I have been riding for about 7 years. First sport bikes, then a dual sport for adventure riding, and now a cruiser. I bought 2004 Vegas used. I haven't taken it on any really long rides as of yet, but it seems to be a well built quality machine, pretty quick (drag pipes and K&N), and compared to other cruisers I've ridden I'm rather impressed with it.
