Howdy, ya'll from SE Texas!

Postby texasagain2 » Wed Aug 31, 2016 12:26 pm

Hi everyone, my name is Carol. I'm from Spring, Texas, just north of Houston. I've been riding for a little over 8 years now, started riding late in my life (will be 65 in Nov). I have two bikes in my garage! My first bike was a 2006 Honda VTX 1300C, which I still have and ride, just can't sell it. Two years ago I bought a 2014 Victory Cross Country Tour and I totally love the bike. A lot to handle being 5'4", but I can handle it pretty well now(the reverse unit I put on it helps a GREAT deal). In 8 years, I have traveled about 90K miles and have covered many states. This last May/June, was my longest trip, 7300 miles that covered all the states out West and all the NW. We traveled thru rain, ice and snow...what a trip! Next summer, we plan to head north to Sturgis and then head East. After that, I will only have the far NE part of the country and Alaska to ride to finish my US States Map.

Glad to be a part of WRN! Ride safe!
Carol

Hi Carol, welcome. You've got a lot of miles under those wheels in 8 years, I have the same time but not even half of the miles. I'm trying to image a reverse gear on a bike, was it easy to get used to.

I love the reverse! Didn't take me long to get use to using it. Main thing I needed to learn was to keep it steady and walk with the bike. The reserve is a kit that Victory came out with and I added when I bought the bike. I knew I would not be able to back a 900lb bike up and I hate asking for help to park. It is controlled by the start button and only goes so fast, one speed.
