Default New XR.

So I decided to get a new bike for 2 up riding and I could never find a set of saddlebags I like for the Yamaha Raider I owned that weren't super pricey or just ugly. So I purchased a 2010 Victory Crossroads. It's black, has an ECU tune, hi flow filter and a set of pipes installed from Chesapeake Cycles in MD. The only picture I have so far is it in the crate, I pick it up tomorrow so I will have more then. I also have a video of the exhaust. Enjoy!



The best part about the exhaust is the dealer had $1000 in accessories cash since it is hosting an open house with the Victory demo truck. So the modifications were basically free! My gf had actually called to have the pipes done and was going to pay for it before we even knew about the promotion.

Makes for some damn expensive bags but they are awesome and the bike they are on is much better! Enjoy the ride!

Picked it up today. Took a minute to get used to from the Raider. May have to reposition the floorboards to gain some legroom but otherwise loved it. Handles extremely well, saddlebags hold a lot of stuff. Had 2 riding jackets, and the cover for the bike in them. Got all the warning stickers off and just waiting for tomorrow and some sun to enjoy it more!

Hate to tell you but you can't reposition the floorboards. The floorboards are not adjustable but the controls are. Look under your floorboards and you'll see 3 holes; yours are most likely already in the middle hole. You can decrease or increase the position of your controls by moving to the back or front hole. Note that you'll have to make changes to your shift rod to - see the owners manual for better instructions.

Sorry I wasn't talking about the built in adjustment. Thank you for the insight though.

I put on stage 1 first and didn't like them so I went back to Chesapeake Cycles and got those same ones put on. I really love them and think they are better then the southern Maryland ones.

I definitely love the sound! It was pretty cool they pulled it out at the open house this weekend and had to ride it through everyone standing there. He gave it a little rip coming through and got everyone's attention. Was a chest puff moment.

So far myself and my girlfriend love it as well. She is learning to get on the bike with saddlebags. This has been a bit of trial and error but I think we got it. Working on getting all the comfort items in order. Really like the bike and the pipes are awesome.
