  UPDATE: I emailed Filson today asking if there were any updates, as I had not heard and took my rucksack to the Portland store over a week ago. I got a call same-day, telling me it will be covered under warranty @no-cost, and should be completed by the end of the week.   Great customer service! So far, all the American companies I've dealt with eventually came through with great service.
For those keeping score, my UPS note says I owe $41. Bummer.
Awesome Victory. Made in USA!
I wasn't home, so UPS didn't leave my package    These pictures are killing me. I should know better by now to have things shipped to work. Dying to caress mine .

It revs like a lug, unlike a japanese 4cylinder, so it's hard to rev too high when easing out the clutch from stops. 2. I can go wide-open in 2nd and it won't lift the front. The bike is...

They handles and stop great, and a torquey V-twin is easy as hell to learn on and makes a great dd ride. And, unlike a Ninja, it will actually get the hell out of its own way when you want...
  Thanks man.      Thanks!
Those look great man.   I will definitely be swapping flat laces for round, though.   Were we able to come up with a preferred care method for the museum calf?
Had my first accident today - real slow speed lowside. A cager was cutting me off in a round-about and I swerved towards the curb and slid on the gravel dirt near the curb. Turned out OK. Picked the bike up and rode home with a bent toe-shifter. My hand hurts like hell, but I'll get over it. Shit happens, I guess; my fault for not being more defensive around cagers.
