Review of the 2004 Victory Vegas:
Qualified outstanding ride
Author: Rodger P Hopp, 2005-09-15|
I love this bike! I purchased a 2004 Vegas in February of 2004 before the snow was off the roads.
First impression was the really comfortable ride. I changed the seat for a Corbin to have a good platform for a passenger. Added a wind screen to avoid bugs and wind blast. Added bags for light touring. |
Lots of power at all speeds under 100 mph. I do not feel the need to exceed that speed. Longest ride was a nine hour stretch and only needed a few breaks to stretch the legs. No cramped seat, back, or arms. This bike fits me perfectly. I am 5´10´(average). The brakes are more than adequate during my two panic stops. One complaint is that any water on the road will end up on the left leg and creep up to the seat. Need water gear for the rain. Horn is pitiful as are most horns and I find lots of autos cannot hear it. There is some draging of pegs on hard leans but the pegs are hinged for this. After about 6K miles, the engine started losing power briefly. This gradually grew into longer periods until it became impossible to accelerate about 50% of the time. Dealer has had the bike for 3 months working with the factory and still canot figure out the problem. I don´t think this is characteristic if this engine as I have not heard of others having this problem. Still, I love this bike. It gets attention wherever I go. It is comfortable and easy to handle. If you are looking for a great handling cruiser, take a look at the Vegas. Make sure you purchase the extended warranty though. I would purchase another one today.
