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!

Here's a question. I'm 6'3", 285lbs. I have seen a lot of King Pins, but I also like the Cross County and Cross Roads too. I want a big bike, easy to balance, fun to take on trips with my wife ext. Any advice on what bike to get? I do plan on taking a trip to AZ Vicoty. I watched a You Tube video about Victory vs Harley. I was impressed at how detailed the video was, and couldn't find a Harley response anywhere. I'm not knocking HD, they are old school and have earned all the fame and respect they get, but Victory seems to be the smart choice.

Jim,
As you can see I ride a Cross Country Tour.
The advantage of the Tour is that if you are doing a lot of two up riding it's a lot more comfortable for the passenger.
I'm 5'10 with a 33 inch inseam. The bike is very comfortable for me. With your height it may be less comfortable.
I know taller people who ride Visions because they find them more comfortable.
Guess you just have to try them all. As was mentioned previously, Victory dealers are more than willing to give you a demo ride.
Good luck.

For comfort and traveling. I would say cross country or cc tour. Don't think you can find a better ride. But I'm partial to the cross country. Az Victory has good deal on exhaust when you buy bike from them.Az slammers. They sound great
Tell them Spill Boy sent you. Should give you a good deal and not a Ridenow

First, welcome to the Forum. I'm pretty new to "this" Forum too, but a member of several others (Victory Motorcycle Club, SCMA, Victory Owners Group, MT, Pashnit, IBA), and a member of the Victory Motorcycle Club and SCMA.

I'm 6'-0 with a 32" inseam, and my XCT is fine comfort wise.

I'm actually heading over to your neighborhood (Sun West City) tomorrow to meet a friend that is going to do the USA4CT in May with.

Elliot
