    2017 Victory Octane
    Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a moto vlogger on Youtube and I also make review and installation videos. Hope to get an exhaust for this bike soon. Its my first "cruiser" style bike as I come from sport bikes. I've owned a Buel XB9-S and a Yamaha FZ-07 so bike that have a lot of low end torque. I look forward to talking to you guys! If you want to watch the videos I've already made on the octane and future ones as well here is a link to my Youtube Channel. So far I have 4 videos on this bike, one being a test ride comparison to the Harley 48 which I was also interested in, but ended up buying the Octane.

    Here is the link to my channel

    Welcome! I think I watched one of your videos while I was doing some research on the Octane. You'll love the bike!

    Welcome from #735! Hope you enjoy the bike as much as I have. Can't wait to really be able to tinker with it when the aftermarket opens up. Also, after watching your video, glad I'm not the only who's brakes are squeaky, still waiting for that to go away.

    Just sold Triumph Scrambler...
    I watched your video too when deciding on a new bike. It influenced me to get to the dealer and test ride one :)

    Such a nice riding bike, I'm presently on a '13 Triumph Scrambler and its hard to let go, but my riding is now mostly suited to the cruiser style and I can also only have one bike in the stable. Once the scrambler finds a new home I will be getting the Octane for sure.

    Hey RR I'm an avid watcher of motovlogs and I've seen many of yours, I've always liked your clam demeanor and clear speech. Never had much interest in the FZ-07 but now that you have an Octane you got a new sub to go with it ;)

    I was having an issue with noisy brakes as well. The dealer finally did some research for me and there is an issue with the pads. Mine has been abnormally noisy since the beginning and I have almost 5k miles on it now. Dealer said they are waiting on some new pads and somehow they will be assembled slightly different. I will have more details once they actually slap them on for me.

    Hi.... RussianRider, I checked out several of your video's on Utube several weeks ago. You do a good job. Welcome to this web site. It's always good to see another Octane owner. I really like mine so far..... 900 miles.

    Great job on the videos! Watched them many times trying to make up my mind on a new bike this past fall.
    Loving every mile on it!

    Russian Rider - your vid series was one of the influences on me deciding to go with Victory even though the brand was transitioning to limbo.
