Thanks Allan for the welcome. Bolton Point is on Lake Macquarie near Toronto.

Only recently purchased the hardball. Start of July. Love the bike, but having some issues with it. Had the big bore kit done before I got it, after 140kms noticed bolts loose or nearly out. A Brisan workshop quality issue. Found no air in rear shock last weekend, now waiting on rear air shock to be replaced under warranty. After 500kms on sealed roads!!

Rear ABS brake does not appear to operate correctly. Well, not if you want to stop in a hurry. If you have all the time in the world it would be ok. Brisans advised it was ok. May email the RTA on it, about the approval no. for ADR 33/00.

Hi Alan

Thanks for that, I know I will love it, It is taking a bit of getting used to, the change from sport bike to Victory, but I am loving it. Cheers

Thanx Allan,Picked Highball up on 15th Feb.Had no intention of buying anything,had started harley after 6 years of slow customising on monday 9th Janurary.Called into Brisans (Victory Triumph Bmw Dealer in Newcastle)on Wed 11th Jan just because I had not been in new shop.Saw Highball and fell in LOVE,went straight to bank.Test rode next day and fell even further in love and went back to bank to fill out paperwork.Harley is for sale.Highball has 2700 k's on it now.Going in on Monday morning for a set of Tri Pro 2into 1 black pipe.Can't wait to hear it.Did you know Victory dropped prices on acessories,they were $2200 now $1705 fitted.Great.Though you might like this story as you have great taste.I will get some photos on soon,if I can get off the bike for long enough.As they say ride one you will own one.CYA
