Hey folks. Bought a new demo 2012 Kingpin right before Christmas. In the Chicago area I've only had a chance to run her out a few times. However, passing a car on a local highjway on the way home I jumped into 5th around 6200 RPM at around 58 MPH and the front tire came off the road..lol. I've had a lot of bikes in my day but there is soemthing about this one that makes me just want to not get off it.

Needless to say the power surprised me a bit, both a bit spooked and excited at the same time. So far I have pulled the stock mufflers off and fit some Vance Hines from aHalrey on. Sounds intense and look better than stock too. Now I'm getting ready to buy a sissy bar and rack along with the Lloyds timing wheel. Should be good to go, don't need much more power than it seems to have now. Have to get used to shifting points, higher RPM's and clunky trans. But I love it.:grin


Glad to be part of the Victory forum
