Default 2011 Victory Cross Country Review: Cory Ness Signature Edition


Victory's Cross Country touring cruiser has proved itself to be one of the best examples of its bagger breed, even in the face of stiff Harley-Davidson competition in the form of the successful Street Glide and Road Glide. When we compared a 2010 Cross Country to a Road Glide, the CC's advantages in engine power, sure-footed handling, superior suspension and a lower price earned the Minnesota-based manufacturer a hard-fought victory.

More recently we pitted a 2011 Cross Country against Yamaha/Star's Stratoliner Deluxe and Harley's Street Glide with its optional 103-cubic-inch Power Pak motor in our 2011 Bagger Shootout, and the Vic outmuscled the hot-rod Harley and out-featured the YamaStar to emerge as best in class.

But when "best" isn't good enough, Victory sends in the Ness family, headed by the illustrious Arlen Ness, one of the most famous motorcycle customizers in the business. The blinged-out signature Ness editions in Victory's lineup are akin to Harley-Davidson's aspirational CVO lineup, appealing to high rollers who want to stand apart from the crowd.

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!

I went to Lynwood motoplex in Lynwood, Wa and looked at a 2012 cross country, and i absolutely love this bike. i currently own a 2007 v-star 1300 touring model and it just does not compare to the Victory. the victory sits more comfortable, looks more classy, has more stowage space, and the audio system is a must have.

I have one and a friend who also lives in Charlotte also has one. We went together to a Harley ride not too long ago so we looked a bit like twins. Definitely got a LOT of looks from that crowd & a lot of compliments

This is a green one that was at our place the other day. The Victory DSM's did a ride down to the keys and made a pit stop at our place.
