Hi Everybody
My new bike is being delivered on saturday. I was wondering if there is anything i should be looking for when the dealer drops it off. I know i sounds like a silly question but i have been out of the country for the last 13 months and the only bikes i have looked at were on the internet.Any help and advice would be much appreciated.

A very close inspection for scratches and dings.

Grab your camera and take high resolution photos from every angle. If you find a ding later, you can refer back to the photos to see if it's something you may have missed during the walk-around.

TAKE THE MSF CLASS.

No matter how many years you've been riding, getting a new bike takes some time getting used to it. As I've stated many times before (and yes, I'll say it again), the MSF Class is the best way to get to know the slow speed maneuvering and the braking characteristics of your new bike.

And one more thing...Contratulations!

So tell us, what did you get?

Congratulations! It would be good to look over the Owners Manual first, it's available online. The link is at the bottom of the Victory website. It will answer a lot of questions and may cause others that can be direct to the dealer when he delivers.

Be sure to ask how much gas is in it before you take off for your first ride.

I just got mine. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Thanks for your service.
