Default Coming over from the Dark Side

Long time Harley rider, first time Victory owner. Just bought a 2012 Cross Country to replace my 2007 Street Glide. I was bored with my Harley, and Victory had a great promotion running - so I went for it. I'm looking to do some customization, and I'm finding options to be considerably more limited for the Victory than the Harley. But that just makes the search more fun. Hopefully, I'll find some good ideas and make some new friends along the way.

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!

Excellent and congrats!

Just stay out of the politics thread. Those guys get cranky.

Welcome and great bike! The red tag promotion is what put me on a Victory as well. I ended up with a 2011 (no 2012 XR's near me at time) and with the promotion and negotiating I was able to get my Vic for about 25% below MSRP so it was a no brainer.

It's amazing how that works. You'd think Harley might give it a shot, but what do I know. I'm not a marketing genius.

Harley does do it, but they don't seem to advertise it. A buddy of mine bought a Street Glide last year at the end of the season and got $2k off MSRP.
