Okay, so since Ginger’s pretty much my favorite thing to talk about, here are some stats. And possibly some gratuitous photos.

2006 Victory Kingpin

  • 2006 Victory Kingpin
  • 23,000+ miles
  • Color: two-tone Sedona over Stone
  • 100 ci (1634 cc) engine (yesssssss)
  • 6 speed
  • 40+ mpg
  • Arlen Ness 2-into-1 performance exhaust

2006 Victory Kingpin

  • Top speed: none of your business, especially if you’re a law enforcement professional
  • Dislikes: speed limits, those pesky yellow butterflies that get smeared all over the windshield
  • Likes: empty highways, 91 or above octane,  The Silver Yam, small children climbing on the seat, and family road trips
  • Fears: tailgating/cellphone-talking/makeup-applying/child-scolding/otherwise distracted drivers in cars
  • Aspirations: to reach 100,000 miles and still be going strong
  • Favorite person: Sumiko. Obviously.
  • Favorite spa treatment: oil changes

All right, I realize that half of those were made up things, and not stats at all. But it’s still an excuse for me to ramble on about my beloved motorcycle.
