Okie57,

I thought it was a 2011 paint scheme, as your paint job looks great. I bought my CR in early June and have not received anything from Victory either. Sounds like a common problem with most buyers

Regards,
Dave

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?

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.

Ride it safe and pile up a ton of miles on it!

for okie57-

What windshield is that? How tall are you, inseam, etc? Is that an OEM tall one from Victory?

Also- does the velcro keep the psgr foot place down or what? I don't seem to understand the reason for the velcro. Please enlighten the masses....

curious.

Default White Bear

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.

Beautiful color scheme, it really brightens up the XC and hopefully makes you more noticeable to the clueless airheads sharing the road with you.

Btw, Gotta love the classic Steve McQueen framed photo in your garage!

FutureVic, Thanks. Steve McQueen poster is one of my favorite Biker photos of all time, plus he was a Marine also.

Default Rare Skull Cross Roads

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!
