Default Got my XCT!

Picked up my XCT today from Jacksonville, NC. Had a great first ride home. Now I'm contemplating the 2" pullbacks to put me in a more relaxed sitting position. I'm 5'8" so the reach was just a touch short. Can't wait to put some big miles on this Summer!

I think you'll enjoy it, I know I'm having a great time with mine. I agree about the pullbacks. That may be my first add on. After a long ride my elbows feel it. I'm the same size as you, so it's either the bars or a backrest to move me forward a little.

They are a great bike, now go to your Victory dealer and support them by ordering the hydraulic clutch kit. The kit is for the Vegas and Jack Pot bikes but it fits the cross country bikes as well. All you have to do is run the hydraulic line down the left side of the frame instead of the right side like the clutch cable.

This install takes all of 30 minutes to do and that includes removing the clutch cable.

It is the single best upgrade you will do to your bike. Next go to http://www.saddlebaglinerkit.com/ and buy their saddle bag and trunk liners. Watch both videos they have and you will be able to install these with no trouble.

Welcome to the club. The XCT is a great bike to ride.

Put some miles on her and then there might be a few tweaks and mod you will like to do. The 2 in bars I have on mine I am 6'5" love the position and the dealer recommended them to me.

Seat you might be comfortable with it for a while but at 270# I got rid of mine in favor of an Untimate, which is OK but I still need better foam in it for hot weather.

If you are going to do Comms between the pass and you go Blue tooth. The factory wired is OK but an expensive install.

Don't know what you came from, me it was a 05 Gold Wing. The performance just wasn't there for me. Two up and a trailer the bike worked too hard in OEM trim.

It took me a while to realize that a set of Cams, time wheel, pipes, Air filter and PCV with a dyno tune made the bike altogether new and a screem to ride. Much cooler too! If I knew then what I know now I would have installed cams right after the break-in period.

It is a great bike to begin with now it is Mine! and Simply Awesome. Thanks HC!
