The engine guard sparks interest here. And is it a driver backrest? Or passenger ?

go figure, the last thing that I want to pull off of the bike, is the first thing some one shows interest in. lol. it's all good. ok, so I'll put you down for first dib's on the engine guard. cool.

both of the backrests are the passenger backrests. sorry, I guess I should have stated that in the first place.

I have to get out to the garage and dig through some boxes, I know I have other stuff, but I just can't remember what all I have. I'm sure I'm gonna find a hidden treasure or two.

That’s works for me. I’m in no rush to do any work to the bike. I have minor list at the moment. And if I touch so etching I’m sure it’ll lead to extra work lol.
PM me if/when ready

Ruger, say it isn't true. I thought you were going to be the last hold out from the old group. I guess it is time to start looking for a good deal on a nice Victory like your wife did. I am still trying to get used to the weight of my Victory and its power as compared to the Vulcan. 750cc vs. 1736cc (106 ci) and 400+ lbs. vs. 848 lbs. approx. is a big difference.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

ok, I'll say it isn't true.....but then that wouldn't be true either!
I may not be the last, but I am, one of the last. lol

Vulcan2000, of late, I've been thinking about you and your Victory. I've been waiting to hear some new adventures you have been on with the Victory.

well, the wife is on her second Victory now, the Judge is no more . she has moved on to the Victory Octane (or ROCtane as I like to call it, aka "Victory's middle finger to Polaris" ).

as for size and weight difference between the Kaw VN750 and Victory Freedom 106. well, the Vic. 106, is one hell of a engine! loved it!
but, enter the ROCtane, with it's 1200 engine with 104HP and weighing in at ~ 530#. talk about power!

I replaced my Vulcan 750 with an '06 1200 Sportster. I love riding it, but it is not a long distance bike. And it is nowhere near as comfortable as the Vulcan 750. A Victory or large Harley would be too heavy for someone in my condition. The Vulcan 750 feels at least 200 pounds lighter than the Sportster, and is easy to toss around. Can't wait to get my new used one all put together and ready to ride. I'll probably keep the '02 as a parts bike.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Backrest, I'd be interested in one of the passenger backrests, depending on how much you want. Thanks, Clem

You've got it. You now have first dibs the backrest.

Funny thing is, I just found the really nice one and yesterday I pulled the other off the bike after work.
I still have a few more things to pull off the bike and get ready, before I take pics, post and list for sale.

Ruger, I am just beginning to get a little more time in with the Victory. I had a few health issues and a fourth grandchild so time had been limited. I also had plenty of projects to get caught up on around the house since retiring and now I actually have some free time. Problem is that most of my riding buddies are either still working or wandering around the country on two week rides that I am not quite ready to take on yet. There will come a time for that I am sure.

Good luck in your next machine choice. Let us know what you are looking at.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
