Yep, from a 1300C to a 2011 XC to a '13 XC.
Nothing wrong with a VTX but it is not a Victory either.

My VTX was a 2003 VTX 1300 Illusion Blue with way too many mods to even mention! Loved that bike but i have moved on in a hurry with this Cross Roads.. What a bike!!

Default VTX to a XR

I had a 2004 VTX1300c really liked it a lot.
Went on a demo ride and just had to get the XR.
The Dealer (Falcone in Indy) was super great at explaining all the features and they gave me a reasonable trade, so I now have a 2012 CrossRoads. Its my first "new" purchase. My only regret was I sure wish I got something other than Black. I like Black but you have to be real careful/tender on the finish.
I think the ride/feel is a big improvement over the VTX.

I reject your reality, and submit my own!

2012 Cross Roads, Utopia Drivers Backrest, Victory Passenger Backrest, Tall Windshield, Lowers, Mirror Extenders, 3m Clear Paint Protective film.

Came off an 2009 1800 T. Very nice bike, lots of Power and Torque standard, the only mods were drilled exhaust, opened up intake. pulled the pollution stuff off, had it 4 years no problems, the XCT was my final choice after about a year of looking, no regrets....

I was on the VTXOA for probably 6 - 7 years. I had a 1300C with quite a few mods. Bullet proof bike for sure and I hope my XC provides me with the same.

This was my 1300C:

Default Vtx

I had an orange 03 1800 for a short while and was on the forum, but I couldn't get the bounce out of the fry end so I traded to a Vegas and then a 2012 XR, which I love.

Had a 1800R and miss the power of the thing but the Vision is so much better a ride and the Vic is the finest bike I've owned.
