Default Got my XC now what?

Hey all, new to XC but not to Victory (had a 2008 Vision prior).

So what do I need? Ha

I have:

Clock Werks shield, Tri-Oval exhaust and a backrest.

Coming off the Vision I liked the protection from my lowers so What options are there? I have the round bars for now. Not sure about the forged ones. I do like them though. Not really sure I want the Tour hard lowers just yet.

Anything else I should be thinking about?

Thanks,
Bill

I was really surprised at how much the Utopia Drivers Backrest made it way more comfortable. I seem to have a habit of slouching and after about an hour get back pains. But not at all with the Utopia Drivers backrest.
Keep riding!

I found the JTD lowers to be cooler in the Summer if you want lowers. I think they have them for the round bars and forged bars.

Congrats, I'm still waiting for my XC. It's been 2 weeks and the dealer is still waiting on parts. Maybe next week.

I was looking at those hard lowers. I have round bars. My bike is black , maybe they come that color. I saw some place a guy was talking about painting them.

I like the versatility of soft lowers. On below 60 and off above.
