Likely in stock at Randy's Cycle in Marengo, IL. I had them installed on my CCT upon delivery. They seem strong enough to lift the entire bike. IMHO, they also look and perform great as well. My wife only uses them sometimes but they also make a great place for fastening something to the back of the seat.

All the best,

That would be 2877480; see http://www.victorymotorcycles.com/en...ps/pid-2877480

Honda East Toledo has them for $251.24 + shipping, although I've read here that forum members get another 20% off. Probably best to give them a call (or find another place that's cheaper yet, if you can).

Cheers,

I believe Jim is talking about the rails that the passenger holds onto (or which you can strap luggage to, etc.). I have these, and agree completely with Mark, i.e, good looking, extremely tough. They also make a nice hand-hold if you ever have to lift up your bike after dropping it, where you place your butt against the seat, grab this rail and the handlebars, and walk backwards.

I've never seen an aftermarket version of the passenger grab rails for our Cross bikes. But, still, these are NOT just cheap tubular crap -- they are very nice bars, and available at least as a partial discount. I got mine courtesy of some Victory coupons at the time of purchase.

I have three pics of these in my gallery, starting here: www.billanddot.com/victory-xct/#5

A year or more ago, I put up the instructions that included with the grab rails, because a few people had them but no instructions. Here's that document on my site: http://www.billanddot.com/passenger-...structions.pdf

Cheers,

Well, if Honda East really gives us a 20% discount, and if it's off they're already discounted prices, it's right around $200 (OK, plus shipping). I'd give them a call. These things are the most robust grab rails on any bike I've ever seen, and they're pretty nice. Maybe someone can find them cheaper.

If you look at the price of some plastic parts on our bikes -- the fork guards spring to mind -- these are almost a bargain. But I guess it depends on how much you travel with a passenger, how much she likes to have grab rails, how often you travel with luggage you want to strap down, etc.

Cheers,
