I just wanted to say hello. I am new to the VOG as well as a new Victory owner. I have owned many bikes over the years, mostly sport and sport touring types. I traded in my 06 Boulevard on an 06 Kingpin a few weeks ago. I have wanted to purchase a Victory since the first time I laid eyes on a Vegas Jackpot. After doing a lot of shopping around, and waiting for the right deal on the right bike, I decided the KP was the ride for me. Perhaps in a few years I may trade up to the newer generation bikes, but personally I think they have lost some personality. I had the dealer do the stage 1 flash, air box and filter upgrade and had Victory Performance drag pipes installed minus the baffles. I really love the tone it gave the bike and have been enjoying the extra torque compared to the Boulevard.
Anyway I have been reading the forums for days now and thought I would say hello. It seems there is a very supportive community here and I am glad to be a part of it.
I thought I would add a second pic. I have not come up with a name for the KP yet. The Stormtrooper was already taken by a previous vehicle I had lol. Being a huge Star Wars fan, I'm sure the name will be related somehow.
Welcome from Witchdoctors!
I'm about an hour and a half south of there near Parkersburg.
I have relatives in Elkins, and own an old Rock Quarry in Oak Hill ( just north of Beckley), so it's almost like we are neighbors. Watch out for folks from Akron, OH.
Congrats on the nice looking bike. I don't have any relatives in WV, but it's been said that Akron is the capital of WV.
Have fun with your new ride.
Welcome from Fla.
Nice looking KPin and I'm sure it sounds as good as it looks. Enjoy
I don't buy a bike to impress other people, just ME!
I will always ride a bike, I just can't tell you what brand it will be.
