When I was looking around for a Vic...the local dealer flat out lied to me & said that XC was NOT available without a radio. I just did not want it, and did not want to pay for it. The bike on the floor was the blue / w red stripe bike so he lost a sale of it . Oh well, I'm happy with my XR.
BTW I have heard that , that dealer is closing...from what else I have heard the reason is other "shaky" dealings with customers ?
Not sure about the [what ya hear] part...so i won't mention a name.
But the good news is a new Vic/Indian dealer has just opened about 7-8 miles from my house...
