I'm not a fan of the front fender or those platforms for controls. You need pegs for controls I never understood platforms. Clumbsy as heck.

Floorboards rock for long rides. I didnt think I woudl liek them either but they defintly have thier advantages. you can move around a lot more and stay comfortable.

Victory mite even give you an option to buy that machine with regular pegs. You are a paying customer buying a pricy machine. Ask them, they may play ball.

Exactomundo! I never even saw them, they got sealed up in a box at the dealer and straight to ebay when I got home.

I bought a new utility quad from these guys in Jan of 06 and nobody could touch the price they gave me. Ask for Bill. He's been there a long time and a nice guy to deal with.

well i went and saw the blue/white one in person, and did not care for it as much. they did have a 06 that was black with a ghost flame job (silver) kingpin that i did like. but i also like the vegas and the vegas jackpot (jackpot comes with the 250mm rear tire).

I do have good news though, the wife said its a go, now i just need to decide on wich one. I think going with a 05-06 with no miles is the way to go, so stay tuned
