New member! Love my High-ball. Fell in love when I was out with a friend while he was looking for bike. Loved it so much I signed up for a class and got my license a month later. So here is my story so far....

I purchase brand new 2016 High-ball last August. And I dumped it 7 days later. Fracturing my knee and road rashes my palms riding home to get my new gloves in the mail. On the plus side I had the worst fracture you can have, I fracture the plateau on tibial. Which means no weight could be put on the leg at all. So I spent my time ordering parts for my bike while it was being fixed. Need to replace brake lever, foot peg and mount along with handle bars and handle bar mounts and most of my dignity.

This happen in early September so my goal was to be back on the bike for a Halloween Run. I met my goal but it was a little ruff my leg was still weak but I was so happy to be back on my High-ball. I started with getting the Arlen Ness beveled collection. Grips, pegs, derby and cam covers along with the Ignition and IAC cover.

I have put a little over 1500 miles on the bike so far and I'm looking to do 2000 plus this year. I can't say enough about how happy the bike makes me.

Welcome! We've got a few Highball owners here if you ever need some insight. I see you're already addicted to changing things out. Just wait until you start going to the performance parts.

Welcome aboard! Congrats on the new Vic!

Once you start with the mods, they never stop. It does give you something to do during the off season or while you are on injured reserve. Good to hear you are back up and riding.

2000 miles? It's a Vic. You don't need to be gentle.

Nice to have you and let's keep the rubber down from now on.

We see how the weather goes, I was able to ride a few hours yesterday but it is starting to snow again. You know Cleveland we have 2 seasons...winter and road construction.

Last a little something to make my rides better. The only down side was it wasn't delivered till Monday so I didn't get to enjoy it yet. I got it for a great deal from a user here! I can wait to install this.

So Sunday was a good day here in the land of Cleve! I was able to get a little riding in and I road to the IX center for the motorcycle show. Here are a few pictures from the show.




Great choice of bike, welcome to the vog!.
