Dernel just recently bought a 2011 CrossRoads. Glad to see your enjoying your new bike. You got plenty of open space to enjoy it down under. Live in the desert in the S.W. United States so I am sure it's about the same climate. Enjoy the new ride and be safe watch out for those very large jackrabbits down there,ha,ha.

As you know it is winter here. It has been raining the past couple of days. Pretty much all day today and it is raining tonight also. We don't get that much rain here usually,but we are getting plenty right now. Man I would hate to live were it rains 300 days a year! Only got about 1000 miles on my bike so far, diffidently a very nice ride. Take care and have a great holiday season Christmas/Chanukah, etc.

I am from Ballarat, Victoria and have a 2010 vision tour. thought I should add to the post with at least another Australian. It is a very good forum with lots of valuable information. Just being on the forum brings out the urge to ride.

Just curious what mods to the engine/fuel systems you Aussies might be doing to your Victories? Maybe you have came up with some better ideas than us Americans. I know you all had some very good mods for my Triumph. I recently bought a 2011 XR.

Hi Speedblue,

I have done no engine or fuel mods, and have not come across anyone else as yet who has undertaken any changes to their bikes.

One thing we all do here is run 98% octane Petrol, which is available from our 3 big ones, BP, Caltex and Shell.

Minimal popping, although i believe the bikes run quite lean, and i met a guy the other wek who had clocked up 35,000KM with no problems whatsover.

regards,

Derek

A lot have done exhaust mods, some have done cam mods and one hammer owner has fitted nitrus oxide.
I will ask about and find out if anyone has done something different.
