Default They Always Nail It

I wasn't able to make it to the Southeast Victory Rally in Helen, GA this weekend. But I did see a lot of pictures many were kind enough to post. IMHO, in every picture of a Cross bike that had forged bars, the forged bars improved on the bikes overall look. I'm one of those who replaced my original CCT lowers with forged bars and JTD inserts last year. Really glad I did. I love the look and the function of the forged bars, a lot.

A big T H A N K Y O U to everyone who posted and will post pictures of this awesome Victory rally.

Thanks..you two are huge helps
And its harder now than ever to hold back on these "wants". I'm going to say the truth... I never thought I'd keep this XC very long, as good as it is, the problems I had with the engine heat and buffeting always had me looking to what was next and it just seemed stupid to spend on all my wants... Now that both those issues are completely cured I'm really loving my XC...I have a new attitude about the bike and I really can't see me getting rid of it in any hurry. Which means...its going to next to impossible to talk myself out of my wants.

@Chattanooga Mark ...sorry about the thread hijack, I just have a natural talent for making everything about me ....

I have no desire for the 21" front wheel but I'm sure with you on the other two. With Victory accessories being largely discontinued, it's a 'get them while you can' thing for me. I bought stuff just because I found it, at great pricing and thought 'one day' I may want it. I'm thrilled you're finding new love for your Victory. Cams, timing wheel, PCV, 1/4 turn throttle ring and a dyno tune bring that affection to a whole new level. For the last 40K miles it's mostly brought contentment. Lately, a big bore kit has me dreaming about the next stage in my CCT affair.

Ok this is me on my Vegas last Wed night.
All the above but lacking in the pipe dept. to bring it all together and give me the top end punch.
Watch and listen.....
Rice rocket pings me at the finish but only just, see the win lights...
This is my best to date [email protected]
With crappy pipes!
