I have the 2013 XCT
I was in at the dealer the other day getting passenger grab handles and oil temp gauge and a oil filter...

On my way out my eye catches this amazzing looking bike - It was the same as the one you bought.

There is something about the look of that bike. And pictures dont do it justice.

You realy need to look close at it to see the little things that make it so purdy....

I was telling my son to go in and look at it.
It is true eye candy

Good for you - very nice bike....

Thanks robvision. It's funny...you mentioned taking a close look at things and I realized I really hadn't taken that close of look at all when I bought it, so I went over to the dealer's shop today and spent some time checking it out without the buyer's emotion thing happening. Nice way to chase the Monday blues away. I might have to schedule a visit every couple of weeks 'cause this is going to seem like a very long 5 or 6 months otherwise.

If I read this right!!!!!
The bike stays at the dealer untill spring ??????

That would KILL me
And if you are leaving it at the dealer ...... Is it out where the public can damage it ????

Winter is time for you to Wax it and get to know it....

I was still riding to work as of last Friday but since the temps are around freezing.
I think I will be able to get out on it a few more times before the snow comes. We are lucky to have snow here for Xmas in Nova Scotia so keeping my fingers crossed for warmer weather.. Besides I only have 10k on it since late Aug...

Hey wait..... Am I allowed to say XMAS.... TFB

So I have to ask
You were in to the Honda dealer and you seen the MASSIVE price differences between the Japanese bikes and Victory.... What made you get a Victory ??????

Sigh...yes it's at the dealer until Spring, but not out where the public can get at it. Same thing with my wife's bike. Although it would be nice to have it in the garage to get to know it, it didn't make sense to get it dealer prepped and then bring it home and have to winterize it. Thank goodness for this forum as it give me a few months to read and find out about my bike from everyone else's experiences. *** Thanks to all of you for sharing what you know and for photos etc. It makes it easy to learn a great deal! ***

As for why I bought the Victory, I'm not sure I know the definitive answer for that. I guess for starters there weren't really any of the Japanese bikes that I liked the look of as much as the Victory so I didn't spend a lot of time making price comparisons. I'm sure I'm not unlike others in the fact I started out looking for a Harley until someone pointed me to Victory. Once I talked to a few Victory owners who spoke extremely highly of their bikes, I realized the Victory was the bike to buy so that's what I went out to buy. Blinders fully engaged. :-)

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
