Greetings from Downunder,
Just joined the forum and looking forward to makings friends with fellow Victory owners.I live 1hr north of Sydney and we are lucky enough to be able to ride all year round.
Have a 09 Jackpot with as many accessories as I can hold of.Victory only been here 12 months.My bike is causing quite a sensation with everyone asking "what is It" ? I just say that no it is'nt a Harley and it won't be the last one you'll see. I seem to spend as much time explaining what it is than riding it !
Recently rode with the local " American Motor Cycle Club" 330 Harleys and 1 Victory ! A memorable day,hey who says they don't like attention !!
Hoping to form a Victory riding group ,any takers ?
Hoping to do some serious riding in the US in the future and any of you looking to come riding downunder,give me a call !
Cheers
Brendan

Hi Brendan,
I live on Bribie Island in Queensland. I purchased a Victory Vegas Jackpot in June 09 (the green machine) & my bike draws a lot of attention as well it is a great bike very well made with a quality finish. I had it fitted with stage one pipes and the air upgrade which I am not happy with as the bike is very jerky at low speeds and the backfiring is a bit of a pain, I serched the web and found Lloyd'z in the states and ordered and had fitted their EFI module which only cured part of the problem only. Please let me know if you suffer from the same problems. I am selling up here and moving down into your area, hopefully some time this year we may be able to catch up and burn a bit of rubber along with my son in law, he lives at Blue Haven.
cheers
Dave

Thank you for welcoming me to the tribe especially you guys in the US.
Bit of a heatwave here at the moment around 40 deg c,a good excuse to get on the bike and ride to the beach !
To Dave,. look forward to seeing you down here on the coast. My bike also "lucky lime" with swept pipes.A little bit of jerking yes a low speeds which I seem to have got used to,tend to up a gear automatically. Backfiring only minor and when engine is cold.Apart from the suspension being a bit "hard" bike is perfect.
Interested in hearing from anyone regarding the saddlebags, size,attaching,any hints etc !
Cheers
Brendan
