Let's talk performance.
After riding this Vic CC for almost 5 years now, I'm convinced that it is one of the top performing "baggers" available(outside of the BMW 1600B). That said, with the mods I've done to the engine it dyno'd at 112hp/113tq....At this level of power I feel I pretty much reached the safe limit of the bike's design(believe me, I've found the limits). So, I feel making the bike any faster than it currently is with further engine mods would require upgrades to the suspension, brakes and with my bike now pushing 57K miles a complete "bearings" replacement of the wheel, steering and swingarm bearings.
I have an aggressive riding style, on a ride I am looking for fast, twisty roads....this is what I love about having a motorcycle....I've reached a cross-roads and the end of the road with this Victory. I belong on a bike designed with more capability and am actively looking at "sport-touring" bikes. That said, I thought I'd open a discussion here and get some of your thoughts before I retire the ol' Vic to the parts bin....lol. Could it be worth an over-haul and major upgrade to this Vic?....and Do you have any ideas to toss at me?
