Hi fellow Vic riders! New to the brand and this forum. Wanted to write about my 2015 Magnum. I live in Indiana and have been on harleys for the last several years, and prior to that, on various metric bikes. I'm 6'5, 260 with 34" inseam. So finding a bike that fit me so I didn't look like a behemoth on it has been difficult. Last bike was a 2013 Wide Glide, that I loved as a bar hopper bike, which I had to put forward controls and 8" risers and different seat to accommodate me. But bike wasn't good for wife when she wanted to ride, especially on trips. So I test rode Indian, Harley RG and SG, and Victory Magnum. Love the Magnum out of all so traded Wide Glide for it. So you're all aware of buffeting, so to alleviate this issue I installed a 10" windvest shield and fabricated my own fork lowers out of 3/16" smoked acrylic with Memphis shades #9890 mounting brackets. Here's a pic of it, and I can tell you....this works great!!!! I liked the Ness lowers and Goody's, but didn't want to spend that much money not knowing if it would work with the shield, so for $56 for the mounts on Amazon, and $33 for a 12"-24" piece of acrylic through us plastics, I figured I'd try my own design first. As promised, here's a pic.tell me what you think.
