another New Guy from Florida
« on: September 17, 2012, 12:25:41 am »
Hi all, just picked up a red 2012  on thursday and love it! I also have a highly modified  2008 Victory Vision(big Bore kit(116 CI) hi lift cams PC V and extended rev limiter).. Not sure if I am keeping it as  I dont have a lot of faith in reliability now..I have done nothing yet but have Murphs handlebar risers on the way and want to  re do  seat  to move me back and more upright.  I have a fantastic guy in Miami  that re does seats  not only reshapes but recovers  any way you want. He is a true artisan..
I am looking for a stock seat  to fit my 2012  (condition of cover and foam not important) just pan.
will glad buy  or return  or pass on to  next person re doing a seat.. I am used to a lot of paying it forward...
I am currently a forum only guy  but look forward  to being full member..I am in Central Florida.  I ride for  food...
rode all day saturday  and had  alternating  rain and love bugs.  Bike is pretty well protected  from rain. only things I miss from Vision are stereo  and cruise control.  I thought I would miss  long floor boards  but so far no...
I also hope to be active  and meet  all the  people in the area.....

Congratulations on the cool new bike and welcome to the forum, devilboy!  There are a lot of us here in central Florida and it's a pretty active group.  Hope we see you soon - COG is a lot more than just a forum.

I know what you mean about cruise control though.  I had it on an '02 C10 and really miss it.  But if you go to Murph's Kits, you can find an excellent aftermarket CC kit which even has descriptions from users on how to install the thing on your C14.  It's only $170, but that's more than I can afford at the moment, but the previous owner installed it on my C10 and it worked great!

As for the stereo, I use an MP3 player with a good set of earbuds.

Marc, welcome to the COG forum! As ChipDoc said this area is rather active with riders and the season as you know is ramping up. Try to get out to meet us and I'm willing to bet you will join us soon.  :motonoises:

Thanks for the warm welcome!   I would ride up to Astor this weekend but I have a previous commitment to a Bike Run to honor and remember a Kissimmee motor officer who recently passed. I will watch the boards for sure for any upcoming activities and these days I can ride during the week during my job search.  Thanks again all  and hope to meet  all the Steves  and whoever else  shows up.
Ride safe !

There's a couple of us COG riders in Citrus County, but you'll find members all over the state. Thanks to a few active members, we're able to get together often, and I hope you can meet with us sometime soon. If there's and questions I can answer, please don't hesitate to contact me. We're just hitting the good riding weather, so look at the SE calendar for a ride near you.           Al

Don't be shy about riding north of the Floriduh line. LOTS of good rides and riding to be had.
