Help me deck out a Cross Country please
Ok, so tomorrow I'm heading town to test ride a CC and am pretty sure I'll be buying one. They have different "needs" than my Hammer S did, and I have tried reading every thread I could find, but the info is really spread out.
Only issues I see are buffeting issues on the helmet for those of us that are a bit taller (I'm 6' with a 34" inseam), and some degree of heat buildup on the rider at a stop, but I would expect that with any bagger.
I know the wimpy stock exhaust has to go, so what seems to be the most popular right now? I like loud, deep and rich. Also, if I end up with a Ness Cross Country, how does that exhaust sound? Am I still going to want to change it out?
Windshield is going to be the biggest concern. I am 6' with a 34" inseam and wear a full face helmet at all times. I don't want a ton of buffeting on my head shaking it around. I remember a short test ride over a year ago on one, and that's what it did to me. What seems to be the best "fit" for a replacement? The taller Vic screen, or the Klock Werks, or something else?
Any other ideas or things that are going to be a requirement for this bike? If it matters, I will be getting the forged crash bars too.
Thanks in advance, can't wait to be back on a Vic.
