Been on her awhile, and guess I need to do a intro. Joined this site back in 2010, Don't add a lot of new topics, but love the info and interaction with my fellow Vicsters. I am on my 3rd Victory, and currently ride a 2015 Vegas 8-Ball, with RPW side-swepts, Lloyd's cams and timing wheel, air breather and lots of goodies to make the bike "Snake Charmer" mine. I have ridden in several states throughout the US including Maui, Hawaii. They best part has been the comradery from riders from several different brands and styles. I am only 5'2" so gravel is my biggest challenge with riding, but hey we all have one. Very excited to see a lot of people on here I already corresponded with on another site. :devil

Happy to have you. Did you rent a bike in Hawaii or take yours there?

It is funny to be wishing you welcome when you have more posts than I do and have already become a fixture here! But I will do it anyway, Frann; WELCOME from BOARHUNTER in Huntsville, Alabama.

Hey hey....great to put a beautiful face with the name! Welcome from Florida! Glad I wasn't the only short one riding. Until I changed my seat, I couldn't flat foot it on my XCT!

Man I've had to change everything on my boy. Lowered 2 inches, heel/toe shifter, handlebar off a cross bike, and had a machinest move my rear brake peg back so I can use it. Went awhile without that, and wasn't too safe. @ FOFO would have a field day on this bike.

Dang! They don't make them for short people. You can say yours is definitely unique!

So good to see you on here! You can tell more about my bike than I can. You have done more to keep me on my bikes than anyone. Time to get down this way for a ride! If anyone needs a great guy to work on their bike, this is the man. Thank you Noe. Glad to be here.

Well, howdy, Frann! My girl is having a special event at work, so I'm batching it till late tonight. Then she's off again tomorrow for most of the day. I guess I'll get some yard work done, maybe even wash the bike.

Good to see you introduce here. Let em all eat their hearts out :devil : You folks doing well down south? I'd love to ride, but guess if the work gets done, then we can go. I need new shoes front and back. These won't make another five hundred miles. So, next weekend, there will be that to do. Still haven't convinced our friend to pull the trigger but she knows she wants another bike. Ride safe. Good "seeing" you.

Frann, I gotta good laugh about your handle, Vicxen. In my Yamaha Venture days, I had a patch made for my wife to counter those "Harley Honey"ones. It read, Venture Vixen. Welcome from the oldster of the forum.

You are very welcome Frann. Don't get on here to much. Working on bikes and family keep me pretty busy. Been trying to get cut loose for a serious ride. I need to clear my head sometimes and only a full tank of gas and a curvy road will do that.
