My sunset red 2012 Victory Cross Country Tour is for sale
Purchased new, January 2012, it now has about 35,000 miles, and is in excellent condition. The only things wrong with it are a few very tiny
chips in the paint, as you would expect on the fender and fairing of a bike that's actually been ridden.
Also, there is some internal peeling, on one side of the trunk's LED light, which is noticeable only if you're looking for it. Mine is not the first XCT to have developed this cosmetic-only problem.
But that's it.
I'm selling it because of a combination of factors.
I'm 69 years old, and the bike is getting too heavy for me. If I were in tip-top shape, this might not be an issue, but I'm not, so it is. I'm now working off my second annual cortisone shot in my left hip.
Also, as a result of medical issues, my wife hardly ever rides pillion. So there's unneeded capacity there, riding solo.
Last fall, I bought a used 650 scooter (and had one before, too). For me, now, the 650 is just less effort, more fun.
Last, I could use the room in the garage.
Price, Contact, etc.:
I plan on putting the XCT on eBay in a few weeks. In the meantime, if anyone would like to make a reasonable
offer on this bike, please contact me: [email protected]
. I won't be checking in here from 07/15 - 07/24, but I'll try to check email.
I'm not sure what a reasonable offer would be these days, so if you have any thoughts on that, chime in.
