Motorcycling Mag gives the CC 3.5 out of 5
So...I got my newest Motorcycling mag in the mail yesterday. I saw they did a review of the CC. My grubby paws fumbled to the right page and I started reading. Bottom line....they liked it but weren't impressed. They rated it 3.5 out of 5. Pretty mediocre. I love my CCT, and started thinking about some of their comments.
They didn't like the cruise control.....neither do I. That is something Victory really needs to address. It is "juky",and sometimes mine jumps around a little when I set it. And the cruise control and stereo control pods are a very poor design feature. Can you say "afterthought".
I do love the ride quality and storage, and easy oil changes. Mine engine is stock, and I don't personally see it as any more powerful than any of my friends Harley's...that are all pretty much stock. I have ridden several....Road Kings, Street Glides, Electra Glides. I really don't like the Victory tranny. NOT smooth, especially at slow speeds. So...IMO, Victory got some things very right......but there is room for improvement. I have just over 5k miles on mine in 3 1/2 months. Mostly happy, but not blinded! It does have the best road manners of any bike I have ever ridden on the highway.
Oh yeah...it certainly does get a lot of attention when I pull in somewhere, which is one reason I didn't buy a Harley. Don't want to be in the club. Hey how many t-shirts do you have?
So...actually when I personally think critically...3.5 is probably pretty close.
