Hey everyone, new to the site. Found a link while searching for info on the downriver cruise. I ride an 05 Victory that I bought new in 05. Had a Nighthawk for a few years in the late 80's/early 90's which I sold, and the Vic is my first bike since then.

Haven't spent allot of time in the forums yet but hopefully ya'll get together and ride some. If so, I hope to join ya's.

Attached is a pic of the bike the day I bought it. Looks a little different now and I'm also in the process of blacking out allot of the parts.

Welcome! Nice ride too. Do you get to ride a lot? I'm trying to get a weekly meet going so if you have any suggestions hit up the thread and let us know.

Thanks for the welcome, guys. Don't do many group rides but ride to work 'bout everyday once the weather stays in the mid 30's or higher. Been on a couple charity rides over the years but don't have any friends with bikes so pretty much just venture out on my own when I can get away from the family.

I'll see if I can find the weekly meet thread and see what is being planned.

Well dirty check around. And if you need any help wrenching I have a nearly full service garage with full scale bike lift. I'm sure you'll see pics around here of it. It's always open for bikers...

I'm at Gib & I-75 area

As far as tire...I do not yet but it's on the short list. Probably in the coming weeks I will be buying a tire changer and no mar bars. As far as balancing I use nothing but dyna beads. They work great and way better IMO than standard high speed balancers.
