Nice Road Story Jack! Great Pictures! Glad you and your lady friend had a good time despite the flat. You kind of look like you could get used to that bike!

It was about the time, after reading the V-Max story for an umpteenth time. The same story that I read first time 18 years ago.

Nice story. I though all riders kept earplugs in their arsenal to handle wind, exhaust & engine noise - not to mention co-rider natter!

Ummmmmm. Why didn't you pack a can of Sealin'Air and a tire repair strip kit? You'd have been back on the road in a few minutes.

"self-cancelling turn signals"?!! How about a capacchino machine, too? Maybe the bike could do all the driving, too? I guess the HD demographic is changing...pity!

You might want to keep a Stop and Go Tire plugger kit on hand for your road trips. I keep one in the side compartment of my Geezer Glide.



Of course adding the RV/motorcycle option to your AAA coverage for an extra $22 is a nice bonus as well.

Nice Story!



Regarding the flat kit. It has been unscientifically proven that nails are repelled by flat kits. If one is carried on the bike, odds are it will never be used. But, don't leave home without it!



One is also inclined to believe a similar relationship exists between rain gear and precipitation.

Concerning your desire for self cancelling turn signals and the lack of turn signal indicators. If you refer to page 58 of the owner's manual you will find that your Victory does have self cancelling turn signals. Oh, by the way , the indicators for the turn signals are just above the high beam and nuetral lights -- go look again, there are idiot lights ..... too bad there are idiots that can't see them !

In June, my Valky's alternator died outside a small Ohio town, 60 miles from home. I've had AAA for 15 or so years, but no bike/RV coverage. I call them, explain I don't have the coverage but I just want them to send a truck and I'll pay full price. They couldn't find one. Glad I didn't pay $22 for that kind of coverage.

Thanks for the info! I'll be sure to avoid small Ohio towns and Valks with bad alternators! lol



I've been fortunate to not have to use either my tire plugger or my coverage.
