My Impression of the 2013 CC
I have had my 2013 since October. As many of you know, it replaced my 2011 Cross Roads after a cager ate it with me on it last July. I have a little over 1000 miles on it and here are my initial impressions, based on riding it and comparing it to my Cross Roads.
I love the bike. I think it rides better than my Cross Roads did. Everyone speaks of the buffetting and it seems I get some depending on which way the wind is blowing relating to my direction of travel. The Klockwerks shield definitely helps as do the soft lowers when it gets cold out. Other than that, it seems less than what I experienced on my Cross Roads. The seat is NOT as comfortable as the heated touring seat that was on the 'Roads, so I can hardly wait to get the seat refurbished and installed. the biggest difference is in the heat the pipes emit. WOW!!!! do the bottoms of the bags ever get hot.. and whatever I am carrying. Most groceries I buy at Safeway are cooked before I get them home to officially cook them. I am not sure why this is happening, and any info would be appreciated. But... Other than that.. Great bike. Looks great and I hope to have it for several years, maybe until Victory produces its 100th anniversary model... (not likely though)
