I know...I don't have that many miles on my Vegas yet. I've not owned a crotch rocket but have had very fast bikes all my life, from a Yamaha XS100, to V-Max's, and the bike I just sold was the Concourse 1400. The Concourse was a superb bike and a rocket ship, equivalent to the Cadillac CTS/V, but it was all covered up with plastic fairings, etc. I needed three different Allen wrenches to change the air filter! Part of the fun of owning a bike is seeing the engine. The Victory fit and finish is great. It has the typical big V-Twin power characteristic. You have to grab a handful of throttle to rev the engine, but it has a LOT of usable power. If you can live with that type of power (I'm starting to like it) the bike will reward you with a lot of fun rides. It will give you 120 mph. if you ask for it but I have no desire to go that fast on two wheels anymore. With great handling it loves to carve in the corners. However, long before you feel like you're at the limits, the foot rests start to drag throwing a little dampener on the fun. I know those tips that stick out are there to warn you but I'm thinking of removing them. The manufacturer needs to bump the rev limiter to at least 6000, maybe 6500. The cams and multi-valve heads work good on this engine. It is pulling hard when you run out of revs a little past five grand. It is easy to work on, looks great as a low slung-cruiser, starts easy, warms up quickly and has given me over 50 mpg. on several tanks. My wife feels better throwing a leg over this bike compared to the 29" high Kawasaki. I think I'm going to like this bike more, the more I ride it. The engine needs to be "unstuffed" with pipes and air intake to realize the potential this power plant can produce. that's in the future.

It has a near flawless performance! I went on a two up for a short ride that included some freeway, twisty and in town. I can happily say the power and handling were superb in every situation. Solo rides even with five herniated discs are enjoyable. This motorcycle seems to float over the bumps with very smooth yet unreal power.

I bought a Kawasaki Versys back in 2008 but my eye was really on the Vegas they had nearby. I decided to get my experience with the Versys and to one day return for the Vegas. Now, 2011, I returned and got my Vegas! The bike is a beast. I love the way it is balanced, low center of gravity, handles like a dream and tons of torgue. I haven't open her up yet, trying to adhere to the break-in proceedures but man it is tough! I extended the controls two inches for my height. I would have given it all 5's but my tailight didn't work and had to return it a week later. I know I love this bike because the two days it was in the shop, it was all I could think about.

I got my blue Vegas a couple weeks ago. I added the Victory leather-covered bags, "short" windshield and seat with driver's backrest. I went on a 150-mile group ride the next day and was pleased to be very comfortable all day! It is so easy to handle, and leans into curves very confidently. No vibration in the hand grips. I traded in a 900 Kaw and was a little hesitant to move up to something this big, but I immediately settled in and love cruising this bike! I get lots of compliments. My Harley pals like her because she's American-made, and my "metric" pals like her because she's not a Harley.

This is our second Victory and we love it. The reliability of our 2008 Kingpin convinced me to stick with Victory and buy the Vegas. It's the perfect size and weight for me and I'd recommend it for any woman who's vertically challenged.
