While on vacation my wife and I saw the 2009 Cory Ness Vegas Jackpot. What can I say but WOW!!! Which is one of the most common comments I hear, everywhere I go on this bike. The salesman, was very informative, helpful, pleasant and not pushy, just my type of saleman. We had been looking at 'bare bones' cruisers for a couple of years now, and we already have a hard bagger, so luggage space was not what we wanted. As there are no Victory dealers in our home area, we had been spending a lot of time looking at Victory's online. And getting a great bike with quality construction and engineering are important to me, as I am getting too old to want to spend my evenings tightening nuts and bolts on my ride. Anyway, they made us a great deal and I rode the bike from Lake Havasu City, Arizona to our home in the center of Washington State. 1,300 miles of pure riding pleasure. It has a smooth ride, great acceleration, holds the road like it is glued to it, and is the best balanced bike I have ever ridden. Another plus is; I averaged 55 mpg for the whole trip. A few times getting 56.7 mpg. It is almost embarrasing, the number of compliments I get on the bike, and getting back on the road after a stop is sometimes difficult, because people gather around admiring it and asking questions. Driving down the highway I see everybody from young children to truck drivers giving me a 'thumbs up' and shouting out compliments. A buddy and I took our bikes to a small town that gets a lot of bikers and I noticed about 60 Harley's, a couple of Goldwings and a BMW parked near the local watering hole. When we came back out to our rides, the only group of people checking the rides out, were all clustered around my Victory. So you can spend a lot of time telling people what it is, what size engine, gas mileage et cetera. Love it!! Not much else I can say.
