    [​IMG]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 thinkthey 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 nowand thought I would say hello. It seems there is a very supportive community here and I am glad to be a part of it.

    [​IMG]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! The KingPin was a good choice. 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. Keith

    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.

    I have been to and through Akron quite a bit working with my previousjob, and for a few concerts haha. I was through Oak Hill just a couple weeks ago on my way to Glen Jean. Pretty country down there.
