New Victory Cross Country Owner

Hi everyone,

Recently purchased my first Victory. It is a used 2011 Cross Country. Got a good price on a demo truck bike with only 2200 miles on it. I really wanted a new CCT but the price was more than my budget would allow. Anyway it will be fun doing the mods for the wind management and such.

The ride home from Atlanta to NW Florida was a bit chilly and the traffic was a challenge while getting used to the bike as well.

I look forward to researching mods on the forum and getting advise from all those that have been there, done that.

Bill

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!

Welcome! I'm also in Crestview and ride a blue 2012 XC. If you find yourself on the 85 speedway, you just might see me there.

Congrats and welcome to the Victory Forums! You may not have gotten the model you really wanted but it's pretty easy to turn an XC into an XCT clone! Christmas is coming and I hear Santa likes Victory so ask for a trunk or lowers and keep your fingers crossed!
