Default There's nothing like a Victory Cross County...

Its been 3.5 months since I've even seen my XC. Its been stored for the winter, so I guess I've forgotten what its like. The title is an epiphany I had today at the huge Mom's South Winter Bash event. I would estimate there was ~500-600 bikes of ALL types, new and used for sale. I was on just about everything, especially comparing the Chieftain and XC side by side. As good as the Chieftain is, it doesn't feel like a Cross Country. I've changed my mind about trading/selling the XC as soon as its paid-off, I guess I don't want to be paying for lesser of a bike anytime soon.... Yea, I feel more depressed after today than ever over the loss of Victory, what a damn shame....
If there is ever an award for most underrated motorcycle ever build its going to our Cross Country.

Sorry @broggyr I know you had to listen to me whine about for 2 hours on the way home

I have to disagree about the XC being the best bike out there, the XR is just slightly better as most everybody knows! As mad as I am at Polaris I have to admit those Indians are some good looking bikes.

Dang, those Indian Roadmasters are beautiful. A friend and riding buddy there in central FL just bought a lightly used Roadmaster in the red and cream color. I'm both jealous that he has it not me and proud to ride with him on my beautiful XCT and be in the presence of that beautiful Indian.

G'day,

I consider the XC and XR as one, sans a fairing.

A friend of mine has one and I rode it last year and it was a nice bike but I would not trade him for my cct. I felt just as cramped on it as I did on my last Harley and that is one of the big reasons I bought a Victory.

That place is huge! I like the Indian's but still don't like the fairings on them. Just don't have the right lines IMHO.

I guess that I am an oddity, but I think the Indian is FUGLY! Between that and the price, I won't even consider one. However, I would like to move the Vegas and pick up an XC to go with my XR. I think Sunset Nuclear Orange would be nice. Will just have to see how it plays out....
