Default Questions before purchase

I'm in the market for a new bike and right now I'm looking at XC XR and the Magnum possibly a kingpin because I've wanted one for a while now.

For the magnum will the tour trunks from the XC tour fit?

And I don't care for floorboards all that much. So will pegs off any other Victory for on any of them? (Besides the KP I know Vegas pegs fit)

I did find a 2012 red XR with only 1200 miles on it. For 11,299 at a dealer I'm planning on going to take a look at it and test ride once the rain clears. Of course if I like it I plan on offering 9800 ish

Any pros or cons from one year to the next?


Do they offer a quick release for the tour pack?

The trunk is called Lock & Ride and fits all the touring bikes. No difference from 2011 up except color. If you don't need the tunes the Cross Roads is perfect. Uninterrupted views thanks to the plexi fairing that's removable - nice when it gets hot.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."

I believe the Magnum comes with bag fillers which knocks out the lock and ride trunk unless you retro fit the fillers

Test ride what you think you may like.But remember there is lots of 2011-2012 XCs with low miles out there for sale cheap.I found my 2011 XC with 7200mi for $8700.You may have to travel a couple hundred miles but it is worth it

Yep I've been all over cycle trader.

The 2012 I found is only a hour away. I plan on offering less. I found another one in Texas with 300 miles and change. For 11,000

Im looking at random dealers online and cycle trader. I don't mind flying and riding back home.

Thanks. I'm not. Windshield kind of guy. But thinking I may go with a fairing just for the tunes along with wind protection. Ive ridden friends bikes with fairings and don't mind it unlike a windshield. I suppose maybe it's how they look.

ABS comes to mind, seems like 12 was the first year it was offered, but I may be wrong on that. If it's important to you, make sure the bike has it. Those XR deals sound super btw. IMO you can't go wrong with an XC with low miles, if it's already had the Lloydz goodies added, you are ahead of the ball game for sure.

Financing will be easier. Especially if the bike is hours away. Everywhere I k ow of around here will want to see the bike first.

There are dealers that need to sell too. I was at mine today and they have a gorgeous red and black and virginal 2013 XC that has only 5K miles. They are asking only $13K for this beauty and yet they have had it for months.
