I've owned and sold a lot of bikes, but I'll never ditch this one.

sstodvictory... Looks like you might have one of the early or first Victory's. Was this the first or second year of production? Yes, hang on to this ride!

I dunno. I had one before I got the FXSTI and really prefer the Softail. I think the main reason was the forward controls. I was hooked 17 years ago when I first got on a Softail. I'm not much of a fan of windscreens although I like the one on the Suzuki. Lets me duck down when I've upped the speed a tad :-)

I have a minor project that needs to be done but I'm going to try and head up into the mountains tomorrow on the Harley. I'll capture some pics :-)

Second year. In '00 they changed the subframe, different Fox shock (later switched to the '99 shock in a recall), redesigned the airbox (more power), different primary case cover, lowered the shifter lever fulcrum point, a few internal changes. They made small changes mid-run throughout '99 and '00.

This unit was the design platform for Mustang seats, and Champion took their gray color match from my gas tank. There's a '99 V92C with over 150,000 miles on it now.

Victory!

Hey a Victory. Finally a thread I can post on!

Here's my '04 Victory Touring Cruiser. A wonderful platform for the wife and me for a two week trip out west this past summer.

Mustang did that saddle right, too. Got the wife to pull 500 - 600 miles a day with nary a complaint.

Sfarson, that is some beautiful countryside. I always love it when I get to go to Colorado on business because of the mountains.

I was born in Denver, lived in Ft Collins, but left at a very early, early age. Don't remember any of it.

It's not as comfortable as a Road King but I prefer the mid controls and higher ground clearance of the Superglides. I feel very fortunate to have quick access to some fantastic riding nearby...both paved and unpaved.


Here's the wife's bike....

Toad,
Although not under this name, I'm on TheVMC also, and hated to see Mr B. sell his TC. My wife was very comfortable on the back of mine this summer, but to each their own. I hope he puts many pleasurable miles on that GL.

I've been working diligently on the MTF calendar until a few days ago...so when I saw the Sfarson...I knew what I'd find. You've got about 4 or 5 pictures in the calendar, so I hope you ordered a few. I love the pics of your driveway. I suppose I can post a pic of my HD. I have a GSA and then there's this:


It's an '02 and I tend to ride it often, well as often as you can with 2 bikes. There's almost 45,000 on the odometer, with a few hundred aweeks still being added. I ride the GS to work and long distance events, but the HD on Sunday. During the winter it's for Polar Bear rides. Be seeing you on the road

Gregg,

Nice Fire Bike ride. Always like it when I see one of these special bikes around. It is also a great complement to the GSA.

Haven't been very active with MTF nor have I submitted a photo since Jan of this year. Maybe I should reconnect with the group!

it m,ight be a good idea to go

here and order a few calendars. I now you are the January cover shot.

If you won any other month, or were a runner up, then you are in there definately. If I recall, i put several of your shots in there. They ordered 100 that are being printed now, and 80 were sold as of Saturday....so if you want a few, better order them now.

Hey, Lockbody!

Cool, cool bike!

I've been looking at Victory's (and at Harley's, and at ...) But I don't know anything about what owners are saying about 'em. Yeah, I can read the spec sheet, and I drool whenever I see that motor and the lines on that bike!

But what are folks saying? Reliability? Comfort? Victory came out with a new model with a 6 speed tranny; said some customers thought the 5 speed reved too highly on the highway. True? Is there a website anywhere where Victory folks get together?

Thanks for posting!

Mr. Cob,

Nice combination of Milwaukee Iron. Bet you don't see many like your Shovelhead! Sweet.
