I had a 2008 BMW R1200RT and the BMW Customer Service was terrible, arrogant, nose-up and non-responsive, and that is one of the reasons I sold the BMW! I did not buy a HD because I heard good things about the Victory-and its true. Great bike! I think Victory better get its Customer Service head and ass wired, or it will lose ground fast. Mid-October I call HQ and question why they are so lax. Amazing, we buy expensive Motorcycles and they forget us after the sale. Makes you wonder what we do if we need them on the side of the road?
The cost for this Paint job & Front Fender work was $2,500. I was quoted as high as $4,000 for just the Paint job by itself by an individual who had the "name." I met these Gentlemen through a reference and coordinating with them, and their level of work was outstanding.
Not bad. I am asking because I lean towards getting a cross roads, and would love to have it in white. $4,000 sounds really expensive, even if a celebrity paints it for you :-) $2,500 sounds like a good value.
Your bike looks awesome - and the fact that it's not exactly like the factory white 2011 makes it unique.
The shield is not OEM Victory. The shield is a Cee Bailey 19." I am 5' 11" with a 32" inseam. I like looking through the shield. I've had shields before that I looked over them, and ones that "cut" my eye level. I went this height from Cee Bailey because I still have about 1 1/2" of shield over my helmet. Velcro. It is the side without the "hooks." Reason, because the metal-on-metal starts to wear down the contact points when the passenger floorboard is folded down; you can see some photos of this worn look on other Cross Countrys and Cross Roads. I put the Velcro there to eliminate the worn look of the metal.
CrossRoads and 07PEARLJACKPOT, thanks for the comments. My white paint was tinted with green.
I know that the Skull paint is not rare but finding one on the CR is, so I will post a few to keep the thread alive... We need more CR pictures!!! I love the look of the CC but I am a traditionalist and like to see my front rim and the road so post yours up too!
