The "search" function still works but did not provide me with specific answers to my accessory questions. Thanks for your opinion, everybody has one.

I scored some stage 1 pipes that were taken off because they were not loud enough for the buyer. I think that are just loud enough for me and add a bit of rumble but not much over stock. I saved a lot on the deal.

I have the Klockwerks flip and I am on my 3rd one, the first 2 cracked at the same spot. The dealer is waiting for this one to crack and then the mount gets replaced, they have installed the last 2. All that said, I love it.

Speakers, I've not had the stock speakers above half volume, even on the highway I just don't have an issue with volume.

Bars, I've got the stock ones and they are fine for me, must be my ape truckie arms or the way I sit, no issues.

I really want a backrest and should be seeing one from Santa, I've sat on a demo with one and what a difference it made.

Good luck, best bike I've ever been on!

Parts added to make her louder, faster and more mine.

I installed the 2" pullbacks and the Utopia backrest( using police pad as it is a little smaller) the combination is fantastic. I also installed the HID highlight which I ordered from a member of this forum and very happy with the quality and service.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
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!

For me, the best rider comfort accessories were the 2"+ Bars & the Ultimate seat. I'm 5'8" and 190 lbs. Below you can see what else I've added.

2015 XCT Two Tone White/Gray
Ultimate Seat & Backrest
Custom Dynamics Non-Sequential License Plate Frame
Hyper-Lites
Kuryakyn #4178 Windshield Bag
Victory Bag Guards

Traded for a 2015 Cross Country Tour on 8-31-15
Previous bike was a 2010 Victory Cross Country-Midnight Cherry, had 54,xxx+ trouble free miles. Just needed a change & got a great deal.

Use the 2nd search box, at the top/left of each page - the one that says "Google Custom Search" in it - that will give you the quickest and best results.
