Hey everyone,
I recently purchased my first Victory. It's an 07 Jackpot with about 10k miles on the clock. It's got a few aftermarket parts on it like exhaust and an S&S intake. I've owned several metric bikes but have always been a fan of Victorys.

I live on the beautiful Oregon coast which allows riding virtually year round, provided you can stand a little rain. I'm a Paramedic by trade and gear head by choice. I tend to do my own maintenance and repairs on everything I own both two wheeled and four.

Thanks everyone. I'll post a few pictures as soon as I can. I bought my bike as a consignment at a dealer a couple hours away so I unfortunately didn't get to talk to the previous owner before purchase. I've had it for a couple of weeks now and have spent a fair amount of time going over it with a fine tooth comb. It appears to have been stored outside and needed quite a bit of detailing. What I've found so far...
RPW slash pipes - Turns out the company is local to me. Bonus!
S&S intake
No sign of o2 sensors but also no sign of a fuel controller. It only has an occasional pop on decel so I'll leave it for now but RPW carries the vfcIII and offered me a local guy discount so will likely be adding that in the future.
Victory one piece touring seat and back rest.
MBW led rear turn signal and side mount plate. Part of the LEDs were only working intermittently when I got it. For the price of the light I wasn't going to replace it. A little time with my Dremel, soldering iron and some LEDs from radio shack and it's good as new.
Blue under bike led light kit
Unknown brand quick detach windshield.

I'm probably forgetting something. I'll update as I go.

Newer member first post. Bought a 14 judge, ride it and loved it .. First "modern bike".. Old Honda after old Honda. But I'm really loving the victory. I don't think I'll look anywhere else for a torque filled Saturday night.. Just so damn fun to ride. Trying to figure out how to post questions to other threads. Not to tech savy. Just saying.

You had to get past your second post in order to post everywhere on the site.

Thanks guys. I'm biased but I agree it's a beautiful bike. I wasn't sure what I was looking for just knew I wanted another bike. I was actually looking at a Triumph Thunderbird here in town. I had some questions about the fuel injection so I looked up the nearest Triumph dealer which happened to be a couple hours away in Eugene. I spotted the Jackpot on their website and knew right away it was "the one". Rode it home the next day:grin

I did something very similar buying my JP. Awesome machine. Congrats! Oh yeah, the smile won't dissipate...ever.
