Here is mine. 2000 Victory V92SC that I bought new in 2000 and now have 45,000+ miles on. And that is with it being parked for 3.5 years until I could afford to replace the tranny. The old Vics had a problem with the transmissions and Polaris paid half the price of the tranny for me to replace it. When you aren't working it is tough to come up with the $ to fix stuff like that. But it is back on the road now and trouble free.

Power Commander III, D&D pipe and chip. I made the license plate relocation bracket and cut off the tire-hiding plastic POS. Put on a Michelin Pilot Sport 205/50/ZR17 car tire on the back and, no matter what you nay-saying panzies say, it works awesome (I still scrape pegs on both sides when running hard in the twisties). And with 8K+ miles on it it barely looks used whereas I would have had cords showing on my sportbike Dunlop tire. I also made the aluminum sissy bar pad cover insert. I have Kuryakn soft saddlebags for it for trips. Put on some real nice Harley highway pegs...best chrome job I've ever dealt with. When I bought the bike I did some research and found that Kent-Moore made the tools and stuff for Victory and I bought the computer software and connectors for the bike's CPU and have tuned it myself...saving hundreds on TPS calibrations.
Took Mini-Goddess for a ride 3-9-09

2 years ago I rode the bike into early December when I had to ride home in the snow (pictures) and got it out Feb 10th. Last year I put the bike away when I rode home in a snowstorm in mid November and got it out Feb 9th.

Here I am at the Blessing of the bikes in Mio last year.




Bagged up and ready for a trip.

Easy chair rider.

Took a ride up to bio-dad's place near Manistee last year with my fiancee (will be my wife in 2 days...Saturday at 1pm...no, I am not nervous).
