Default Changes to the Cross Country

I'm looking into buying a used cross country. this may be asking a lot, but is there a list of changes that Victory has made to the bike each year since they introduced it? maybe things about them that may make me want to avoid a certain year, or "this is the year they started doing this..." kind of stuff. any input would be appreciated.

thanks
adam

the '10 models have a 2500 mile oil change interval. This was doubled in '11 with the "new & improved" transmission design. However, some '11 models may have rather noticeable torque compensator noise. This was improved upon again in '12 to reduce drivetrain noise, and each successive model year seems to be presenting further small refinements to the transmission, which has been a gripe on the touring bikes.

'13 eliminated forged crash bars altogether and I think cruise on the non-touring models.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

Mine:
2011 Cross Roads, crimson red
Lloyd'z ATS, IAV, VFC-III. Vic "High Performance" air filter. Ness Big Honkers. Funsies.

Hers
2015 Vegas 8-Ball

2012 XCT is best of everything in my opinion. Hid headlight, abs, cruise, heated seat n grips, round bars n fairing lowers. Ipod connecter in fairing lower, power outlets in lower n trunk. Bought mine off CL with 2900 miles for 14,500. Deal of a lifetime.
