Default Brought 2012 XCT home

Ordered a Red 2012 Cross Country Tour on 30July2011, it was finally ready on 31August2011. Bike is absolutely stunning. Mrs. Tripntx loves her seating position, arm rests, and grab bars. The sound from those D&D pipes are awesome. Dealer also installed Lloydz VM1-DR Cams, Power Commander V5 & AutoTune, Vic Perf air filter, and removed air seal. Was really nice riding the bike away with so much of the work already performed.

Today's agenda: install Zumo 550 with XM30, cup holders, and cycleopsusa Flying V.

Congrats on the new ride. I'm sure both of you will keep those smiles for many miles.

Talking Congrats!

Sweet ride! Love the color and the passenger looks VERY comfortable. My 2011 XR is set-up pretty much the same except no arm rests or engine upgrades (yet).

I saw you're installing cup holders...what type and where do you plan on putting them? I'd like to put some on mine but not sure where the best place would be...this is my first cruiser so I'm not used to all the 'bling' or the options to even consider 'drink holders' so I'm hoping someone with experience can offer a bit of advice...

Congrats again and I hope the two of you have a great time 'breaking in the new vic'...

Well worth the wait! You two look like you belong on that bike. Now get'er broke in and get some touring in!

RR: Cup holders generally go on the handlebars. Can likely put them on the bars of the passenger armrests too.

VERY nice. I also have the Loydz cams, the bike is fine without them, but they really open up the power!!!

Default Cup holders

We used victory cup holders and placed them on each arm rests, one on each side. They work perfectly.

Been a good weekend. We now have 991 miles on her.
