Default Want A Victory

Hello from Warrenton NC. I currently ride a VTX1800 and went to the Victory dealership today and I think I'm hooked.

Take a demo and let the bike sell itself to you! There are quite a few people that made the cross over from VTX to Victory so you will be able to see how much happier they are now.

+1 Vics are amazing bikes. Been riding 60 years and hated cruisers. My condition requires a lower seat height and low CG, that meant a cruiser - ugh. Then I saw an ad for the Cross bikes, checked out the specs and reviews. Both were great. Looked into this forum to see what was being griped about...nothing. Took a test ride. That did it and will do it for you too. Take your checkbook.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles.

I came from a VTX 1300R. I loved my VTX, but the Cross Country is leaps and bounds ahead! You won't regret it.

I've ridden Honda's, Yamaha's, BMW's, and Harley's... Victory is in a league of it's own. I'm very partial to the v92c myself, I've test driven the vegas and kingpin, but I didn't like them as much, but still better than the others lol.

Looks like there are several people looking to part with their VTX.
Not sure if I will try to sell or trade mine. The Victory dealer that is closest to me does trike conversions. They mentioned doing that to my 1800.
