Victory isn't kidding with that slogan, "Ride one and you'll own one."

Congratulations!! I look forward to the pictures when you've got the new pony in the stable.

You have good taste. If you get one I guarantee you won't regret it.

The Boardwalk is a very nice looking bike and I got to tell you that if you haven't seen one up close you're really missing out. The pictures do the bike little justice. I think this is true for all of the Victory bikes. They look amazing up close.

I pick up my bike tomorrow and I feel like a little kid before Christmas. I'll post some pics sometime in the next few days. I really like the forum here so I hope you'll all put up with an ex Boulevard owner.....

Pete, that's the model I test rode the other day. Thought I could swing the cost this month but will have to wait for summer. Beautiful bike in person and great ride. Love the white/white theme as you know.

New OLD Rider,
Look thru the signature lines and you'll see lots of non-Boulevard riders. No body gets kicked out for their choice of bike

Well, the idea last month was to trade it in. The Vic dealer indicated they would offer $4k in trade. You and I know the price I bought it from you, so knowing that and how many wonderful miles I've put on it since, I felt that was a good deal. I think anytime you pass 40k miles on the odometer, trade value and resale value is diminished significantly each and every mile thereafter.

Personally, the bike is priceless... So, for now, I put new tires, SS brake line, brake shoes, and a weekly wash and wax and ride it like I stole it! I think its as clean and pristine as the day we loaded it in my truck at your house going on 3 years ago. Wife and I are heading to CA next month to ride PCH from LA to SF over several days of the Xmas and new years holiday.

Next summer, I will evaluate the savings acct again and see what deals are available for on the floor models 2013's. by then the Boulevard will have over 50k miles. Can't keep two bikes, so not sure yet.

I'm glad it went to a good home but I agree, it's time to give it a rest and let somebody that doesn't do as much riding as you do, enjoy several more miles on it.

The Victory has more horsepower and torque than you'll ever need, even in the mountains with 2-up.
