No, not Harley (don't be silly!)

But I have bought me some American muscle. Meet Minnie (from Minnesota). She's a Victory Cross Country, 1731cc, air/oil cooled, belt drive, and comes with factory fitted hard panniers, and fugly batwing with fm radio, speakers, and iPod connectivity. She's on a 61 plate... Actually higher miles than my 05 intruder, and looks mint in the distance shots here, but does need a bit of tlc close up, but then I got it for a cracking price. Only picked her up today, so only got a few pics, but here you go...

Nice bike Mal ..... I've looked at the Victory range myself in the past - but never taken the plunge - Minnie looks a very nice Cruiser/Tourer to me. I've gone to the dark side 184121345

Yes of course... Normally after a 3 hour ride, I'd be the one wanting a soak in a tub, but Minnie got the priority soap sud treatment. Haven't wax polished her yet, but did try t cutting a few annoying mild scratches etc.

It's all go at the mo, full day in work today then drove up to Newcastle to stop over so we're all set for Nat's graduation tomorrow.

Have to say Mal, the photos in no way do justice to it.  It's even more awesome in the flesh - shame to brand is no more
