After a year, 10K miles and gaining my confidence back after not owning a bike for a 'few' years I traded my 800A in this afternoon.

I went the other day to look at the Vegas 8Ball when a Jackpot caught my eye. Picked up an `06 Premium with 5400 miles for a real price. I'm sure I will miss my little 800 and I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I did.

So, the JP was dropped by the previous owner but it isn't bad. Exhaust has some small scars and the brake pedal and lever have a little scarring. They painted the bike because of a scratch on the tank and corner of the rear fender, it will go back to the original black this fall.

Here she is

My wife was looking at an 8ball earlier this year. I must say, the Victory's are nice looking bikes, and the prices seemed fairly reasonable. I'm glad she didn't get it though as upgrading from a 250cc to a 1700cc seemed a little excessive, so we settled for a 750cc Shadow lol

Victory's are really growing on me. Technologically advanced with a throaty V-Twin and some personality, gotta love it!

Vulcan 88

Do you/did you own a Vulcan 88? Thoughts & opinons. Good stories, etc.

Ive owned two of these BUBF bikes & LOVED both of them. Fantastic bikes for a 4 sp bike . The ONLY improvement would have been a 5 speed. LOTS of power, very dependable, not usually great MPG, but hey? you have the power.
Few road bikes have the power to weight ratio of the Vulcan 88.

That's real purdy. Look even better when you get it painted black again! Enjoy the new ride, and take care of it!
