Default New spot for Cycleops Inserts

Nowhere on the Cross bikes does it tell what it is. And I've often been asked. I contacted Will at CycleOps and as luck would have it, he had just the item hot off the press. He intends it to be used as inserts on engine cases, but looky where I found a great location for them on Cross bikes.

No way! I'm proud of that tank badge. For one thing, it doesn't look like anything you'll see on the flanks of an H-D tank and that suits me just fine. For another thing, I want to do anything I can to give Victory all the exposure I can. We have an uphill climb to getting respectable recognition.

I agree.
I am so pleased with my Cross Country I sport a Victory emblem on the rear canopy window of my truck.
This year it is only 12 inches long I think this summer it will double in size.
I am also a proud Canadian and have removed the yellow and red reflectors from the forks and bags and made my own reflective Maple Leafs.
Forks are yellow bags are red.

Those XRoads emblems look great. I've been thinking about getting for that spot too. They look like they belong there.

I've been thinking about the chrome script emblems for the tank too.

My social calendar is wide open for you, buddy. I am looking forward to that. Send me a private message and I'll give you details and we can make arrangements. Driving, or need an airport pick up? Be happy to do it, chemo permitting. Today is better than yesterday, so I guess I know how I'm doing when I wake up.

Hey there Ric, those look great there, thanks for posting the pics.

As for your meet-up with D, just be careful he doesn't have one of his flashbacks and try and give you a lap dance! And no, don't ask... save that for him when you meet!

Sorry D, couldn't help myself! LOL!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
