    2014 was the year they IDed a bunch of bikes with C Clip prone shafts or something. The info is located somewhere in this forum. I remember something was also said that they they basically caught them all or got them all fixed. It was an unofficial recall or something. Dont ask me anymore about it because thats all I rememeber!

    Not sure on a cover, my baby has her own room in my garage. As for wax I have been using Meguire's synthetic waxes for years on my bikes and trucks with great results. You have to be careful with waxes, some of them will turn black plastic a hazy white if you get it on there. Boy that sounded racist I better be careful myself LOL.................

    South east Florida coast for me. Jupiter to Sebastian is my loop with the occasional trip to Daytona Cocoa and Melbourne. Good luck with your Victory.

    Remember Vic's like rpm's, keep your shift points up. Learn to preload your shifts and the trans can become quite smooth. They are amazing machines. Have fun making it your own.

    That is a beautiful bike, but who is that goofy dude standing next to your bike? :badgrin: Congratulations and welcome to the forum! :dance:

    What you are really going to love about that bike is what happens when you get into the really twisty, windy stuff. You will not believe how well such a big bike handles and corners. Save your nickels and plan on cams and tune. That's where some real fun begins. Ride it often and enjoy. :clap:

    @Coastal Rider Congratulations, that’s a great looking scoot, don’t lug the engine like you can on any other bike cause these 106’s were engineered to run above 2500 rpm’s. They may look gigantic but they’ll rail corners like a sport bike but has more way class & style

    Thanks guys. I really only got about a 20 minute ride in yesterday, and it was mostly straight lol.... but I did have a round about and was surprised with the balance. AZ fir shifting/RPMs, I've always been one to shift according to engine sound. O can tell already this thing is a beast. Going 50 in 3rd at only 3k RPMs. My Vulcan 800 would be in 5th lol. I don't know what preloading my shift points is, but I'll look into it haha

    Side question, reading the owners manual (which came with the bike and is in excellent condition) it says I can adjust the brake pedal and shift pedal for length? I'm on the short side... is this an easy thing?

    Another question... I need extra keys... can you get blanks online? I saw some on Amazon but not sure if they are good.

    Thanks for all the answers, encouragement and support y'all

    @Coastal Rider the key is easy. KW14 is the key blank and it's available at any locksmith. Also on line, but probably cheaper at smith shop. The adjustments for controls are very simple and only requires a couple of tools. As you examine them, you will easily see how it works. You may have to reposition the shift cam on the shaft to make it work if you need to move the controls say, an inch or more. But, it's easy.

    You can also adjust the passenger boards if needed.

    I had two Nomads before the Vic. A 1500 and a 1600. The Vic made both of them seem clumsy and slow. Coming from the 800 Vulcan there's no comparison.

    Hit the local locksmith/key maker. It's identical to the kawasaki kw14 or Yamaha yh47 key blank I think.

    Changing the board location is pretty easy, the brake rear master is mounted to the right side so no major changes needed. You'll need to adjust the shifter linkage after moving the board on the left side. I think it's 1 m8 bolt on each side below the board, really simple.
